Write a letter to yourself...

    Scribbles (150)

    Jan/Hui Jan/JanJan/JannieJan/Janster,

    I hope you're still being called all these things. Because it means you're still... You're still you. I hope this letter doesn't make you cringe too much. And I hope you haven't changed too much either, because I'm all right with the way I am now, mentally.

    Have you finally lost some weight? Did you go bulimic the way I'm so scared I will? I sure fucking hope not. That would make you a bloody hypocrite, I think you know that. How are you with the way you look? Are you prettier than me now? You'd better be. I don't think my looks could deteriorate any further, unless I get involved in some freak accident or something.

    Hey. Are you even going to remember to come back this time next year and read this letter again? Hell, are you still on Mibba? I hope you are. I hope you keep writing and posting, and I hope more people read your stories now. I hope you get the constructive criticism that you've always wanted. Maybe if you keep writing, you'll actually get better at it. Persevere, please. I want to write better when I'm you.

    Oh, crap. PMR, how did it go? Are you okay? 7A's? Are you still alive? Well. If you didn't get 7A's, you might not be here to read this, so. Assuming you did, congratulations. You fucking did it. :arms:

    You're sixteen and a few months. Have you finally gotten yourself all tangled up in a boy yet? Nothing has happened since him last year, and I was wondering whether things have gotten better. If you have, I hope you'll be careful. I don't want you to get your heart broken.

    Did you get a post in the prefectorial board? Counselor, at least? You kind of deserve one. I think so, anyway. :|

    Still Keeping the Faith, or has it faded? MCR, God, yourself? What's going on there? I'd like to know, kthxbai.

    You'd better still be keeping faith. Especially in God.

    What about your friends? You still friends with the old gang? Janie's still your bestest friend ever, right?

    I hope you don't hate me like I hate the me two years ago. I hope I don't shame and embarrass you. You're someone I look up to, look forward to being. That is, if you're the person I think you are.

    Well. Good luck, and such. KTF, definitely.

    -- Jan

    P.S. Because I want you to remember. This is a screenshot of the post template this was in.

    Did you go to the Gaeltacht after all?
    Are you still addicted to the computer?
    First kiss? Well , yanno.Excluding the one's so far which I don't include. That's how much I hated them.

    Are they still your best friends? Did you pass all those A Levels? Did you make more new friends at college? Did she still give out the dirty looks like Christmas cards? Are they still together/engaged? Did all those concerts live up to expectation? Did you get to meet anyone? Are you still angry and upset about that? Did you get into the university you want to go to? Have you see the Foo Fighters live yet, or are you going to? Did he ever ask again, if he did, what was your answer?

    Are you still the same as you were at sixteen, now your almost eighteen?

    If things aren't going good, remember, things will get better, even if it takes time.
    I know you'll miss them like mad.

    Hello 15-year-old me.

    How are you holding up?
    How's being 15? Good?
    Who are your friends now? (mibbians and RL)
    I'm doing ok. I've been getting more friends on mibba now - Molly, Amanda, Rowan, Ashley, Naomi...it's fucking awesome.
    Are you still friends with them? I fucking hope so.
    What do you think of Edward Cullen? Are your favourite books still the Twilight series?
    Do you still like Angels and Airwaves? You better. Seriously.
    How are things going with Nick? Right now, I'm good friends with him, maybe a little more, but we aren't going out.
    Is Joune still your friend? I fucking hope not...I'm so sick of her. She's so immature and annoying. I bet she's still like that in '09. Right?
    You still love MCR, right? Forever and always. Does Ilia still love them too? I fucking hope so. Does he still talk to you? I don't think he will. Right? He barely does now.
    How's the social life going? Crap, like usual? I seriously currently only like Kat and Helena. They are the best. But Kat can be too flirty with guys. OH, how is that going for you? Like, boys and stuff?
    Do you still HATE your class to bits? I hate them a lot. Always fucking keeping us in at break. Wth. Not fair. Do you still like Melanie? She's not bad. A little too gothic, but not bad.
    How're things with Helena? Is she your friend? Or do you dislike her now? I still admire her. She...rocks. Do you still fucking hate Savia's guts? And her bitch of a sister? Remember how Marian used to flirt with Nick when she KNEW Nick liked me? And Savia did that too! Please tell me you don't like them.
    How was the Twilight film?? I hope it was good...the trailer didn't look too bad. Edward was...In Love. Was it a disappointment?
    Do you still go downtown with Basil, Nick and Joune? Who do you hang out with now?
    Do you still want your kids names to be:

    Boys: Spencer, Jasper, maybe Logan.

    Girls: Bethany (Bess for short), Dayle, Ginny, Kiera, maybe Rosalie, maybe Hayley.

    How'sSpike Treasure/Jasper doing? :cute:
    Is 3rd form harder than expected? I think it's gunna be a little tough...I don't know. Is Mrs. Stavrou still nice?
    Do you still like photography?
    Do you still have future plans on becoming a songwriter (and possibly singing them)? Do you still want to be people's Gerard Way?

    Goals that I want to achieve by the time I read this:
    -Have gone out with a boy (excluding Nick).
    -Paint my room.
    -Make good friends with Helena.
    -Have STAYED on mibba.
    -Built confidence in myself, and what I wear.
    -Buy awesome and Original clothes. Have my own style (sorta).

    Ok, that's all. :cute:

    Heyyyy Sian,

    Oh my gosh, you're sixteen. I hope you haven't lost your/my virtue just because you can legally. I swear I'll hurt you if you do. :grr:
    So, what happened when you went back to school? Did it go terribly as you expected? Did you ever give those chocolates to Mark? :lmfao Did he laugh at you like you knew he would with that cute chuckle?

    Ever take your dancing grading? You/I'm on gold now so next is gold bar 1. You get a plaque for that so if you haven't already taken it, take it now, kay? I want a plaque.

    Have MCR made a new album? I just got their update and am all In Love :cute: Wow :crazy: Are you still like that when you hear of them? Please, just don't ever forget what they've done for you, no matter where you go in life. This is the non emo kayeffsee speaking so -

    OH! Are you still KFC? I hope so. 5 years with that nickname should be enough to stick. I wonder if you'll ever change your mibba theme. I hope not, I love your name and avatar. My name and avatar. I epic fail at writing to myself.

    Ummmm... Right now my/your right wall from the door is covered in an MCR banner and white. There's a cabinet with crystals in and the bed pushed up against it with a Pirates Of The Carribean sheet I found out the attic. There are four circle mirrors at the head of it. The front part has a giant window which I'm currently waving to Misha through and lots of wires on the window sill. Charlie Daniels is playing out of the CD player on the left next to the cupboard, CDs and all the guitars and pirate ships x]. Anything changed?

    Don't ever forget WAYT or secks or your mibbian friends either, because you wouldn't have survived this summer without them.


    Later, not gorgeous. (OR ARE YOU?!)

    Me :arms:

    So, did you ever become that star you wanted to be? Or did that dream wash down the drain like the rest of your life?

    Did you finally find a guy that treated you right? Or do you still flirt with other guys behind your boyfriend's back?

    Did you dye your hair red yet?

    Are you ever gonna be accepted?

    We're you finally sent away to the funny farm? Or do you still keep everything inside?

    Just wondering,

    High school! Finally! You rock, girl.
    Are you still a Mibbian? Don't tell me you left your mibbains behind!!! Are they still your favorite boys? Did you ever meet them?? Was Lily lying? Disgust Did you go to another Jonas concert? Do you still like them? I got A Little Bit Longerr. Whoo! In Love :cute: Wow :crazy: You've been to two of their concerts so far. I hope you still like them. Don't forget them. D: Have they made a new album yet? Ohyes. Summer tour? Ohfuckyes.

    Who are your friends now? How's High school? Did you dye your hair yet?
    What do you want to be now? Or has that gone down the drain like everything else? Eighth grade really sucks right now. I hope High school is much better.

    Are you still a vegetarian? If you aren't, I'm disgusted. Two years and you fucking quit?

    How did the surgery go? I hope it wasn't too bad.... did you get lots of presents?

    Do you still hate Brooke? I don't blame you.

    Are you still an author? Did you ever finish Thank You, Gravity? How did it end?
    You're still ON Mibba, right?! (jonascestyoufreakk!jonascest,catie,joick!<---ignore that.) Please don't forget about your Mibbians! What's your theme now? Is it still the fluffy pink thing with the I BITE signature? Must I give you a screenie? ...Did you break your laptop yet? Is it still a Sony Vaio? White!?

    Please tell me they're divorced. Please. Have you moved yet? How's the new house?! Where is it?? I hope that asshole is gone. Please tell me he's gone. He doesn't deserve you. They can't get through one day without fighting. I hope you know how to handle it now. I'm hopelessly confused right now. They're fighting. It's horrible. Please tell me it's gotten better. I hope it does. I fucking hope he leaves. That fucking asshole doesn't deserve your house.

    Is Rags still your best friend? You better not have forgotten about her!! In case you're the idiot you tend to be, go call her. RIGHT NOW. 301 --- ---- What about Miranda? Alex? Alyssa? You can't leave them behind. Who are your friends now? It's about time for your birthday... isn't it? Call them. Invite them.

    Did you come out? Have you realized it yet? What did people say? Honey, I hope you're alright. We're going to grow up pernamently fucked up and you know that as much as I do. Just tell them.

    What does your room look like? Well, right now your room is blue. And the bed is purple, and you have two walls wallpapered in posters. It's pretty amazing. Jonas Brothers, Paramore, Simple Plan, Chris Brown, Metro Station, as well s tons of photos and postcards.
    I love you. Hoping things have gotten better

    The Brightside (500)

    Dear Anneliese,

    Wow. 24 minutes until 2009. Good luck.

    I want you to know that you've made mistakes, and fuck, you're going to make a lot more. Just... remember that.

    Did your vampire man wake up to it all? Does the werewolf boy actually like you, or is that just people making shit up?

    How's Mr Brightside going?

    Did you survive HSC? Did you finally snap and yell at your parents and teachers to shut the fuck up? Did they still expect you to get a 90+ UAI? Did you get that mark?

    How close are you with Jacob now? He's good for you, you know. He gives you so much to think about, an alternative point of view in conversation, somebody to fangirl with about the Killers. Don't take people like him for granted. Keep in touch with him after HSC, okay? Stalk him if you have to. Just... don't fuck it up. Please. You've never been the most gorgeous person on the planet, inside and out.

    Is Conor still your mentor? How many more rough spots has she helped you through?

    How were The Kooks? Bet they kicked ass. Did the Killers change their show so that under 18s could go too? Hope so!

    How was your 17th birthday (and Mike Dirnt's 37th :tehe:?)

    Do you still love Green Day with all your heart? Or did you grow out of it, like everybody said you would?

    Did you move back to the old house? If so, where are the horses kept? Did Mum take you out to visit and ride them?

    Please don't forget about Mibba. Sneak on the internet if you have to in future, okay? Even though by the time you read this you should have had your internet curfew lifted, since HSC is over and your parents can finally get off your back.

    Are you still working at McDonalds? How's the pay? How's the food? Surely you must be sick of the smell by now. Did they ever promote you to working in McCafe? Or are you still stuck in measly drive-thru? :tehe:

    You're a good kid. Yeah, I know, I never give you any compliments but your sixteen-year-old self owes you a lot. I hope you're not beating yourself up too bad.

    Don't ever, ever, ever give up. Fight with all you got. For him, for them, for yourself, for your morals. Never give up. Please. Please tell me that while reading this you can think, hell yes, I made a change. Whether it was one person's life or several. I don't care. Just strive for forward movement.

    How was the year 12 formal, by the way? Or did some concert conveniently clash for the same night?

    (hey, you never know, year 10 might repeat all over again.)

    Still friends with the old Mibba crew? How's Kayla? Vonny? Do they still listen to you unconditionally, no matter what state you're in?

    Family still together? Everything all good?

    Make sure you keep in touch with everybody. That means Mibba and your high school friends.

    Hope you start a Mibba WAYT reunion someday, too. You'll have lots of free time once year 12 is done.

    9 minutes til 2009.

    Fingers crossed. I'm actually nervous.

    Good luck.
