Letter to 11 Year Old Me

Here I am once again to write a letter. You all must think that I am obsessed with letters or something....

But I don't know exactly what is to come, but I know that I have soooo much advice that I would give to myself if I could.


Dear Yuna,

So I know that you probably want to crumple this paper into a ball and throw it in the garbage right now because you think you know everything in the world.

But please don't, because you definitely don't know a fourth of the things in the world. And I probably don't either. But I know a lot more than you do.

You are in either 5th or 6th grade right now. You probably have Mrs.W or Mrs.Y. They are really amazing teachers. Next year you will get that laptop that you really wanted. And you will get a kindle fire. You'll get a new classmate, who you won't like at first. Don't be afraid to join volleyball. It'll seem scary at first, but it's so much fun.

You'll get a lot closer to your classmates. There will only be 16 of you in 7th grade. They will be your school family.

Cherish your time with your friends. They will become like your family.

I wish that I could tell you that your best friend is sitting 3 seats away from you in homeroom.

Don't forget your book report at home. And when Mrs.Y asks you to bring in the box of rice, tell mom as soon as you get home.

Don't skip studying for a test so that you can 'wing it'. Don't get involved with things you don't have to be involved in. Water your sunflower plant everyday.

I wanted to tell you that it will all turn out okay in the end. That through the crazy fights and that left-out feelings you will end up happy in the end. You may end up not popular or not beautiful or anything else.

You will be happy. And that's the important thing.

Love you,

Back Again...

Hey guys!

Wow, things have been really busy over here!! So school had been pretty mellow, but after school activities are all over the place. I have volleyball practice once or twice a week, and two games a week. Neil had soccer practice once a week, a game once a week, and will start basketball January of next year. Kiren has joined gymnastics once a week and she is also doing piano once a week. We all seem to be caught up in different activities at different times.

This season our volleyball team is 5-1, so we are off to a great start. One of our teammates broke her hand at volleyball practice, so we are all hoping for her to come back before the season ends. We have about 12 games left, not including tournaments.

How are all of you guys doing?? I am really looking forwards to November this because it is a really busy moth for all of us. I an running a school-wide fundraiser for two weeks, then it's my birthday, and then it is Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday of the year.

So as you all have noticed I am a slacker.

Yeah, I don't post once a day. Or once a week. Or once every other week. And sometimes not even every month.

Yesterday I got an inspiring phone call though (My inspiration, you know who you are)

And it reminded me that I have some amazing people behind me that are always waiting for me to post.

And I love you guys.
