Today, looking for an old address in one of my rarely used email accounts, I found a new email amongst all the spam entitled “Hey you”. Now, it could have very easily been one of those SMS spam emails from one of my contacts trying to get me to join a site, but it was not. It was from “Future Me”.

It read as follows:

(this message was composed on Tue, Oct 21, 2003)

Dear FutureMe,
Do you even have this email account anymore? I guess Microsoft is always a certainty in
our lives. Like a leading beacon.

So, where are you now? Asia? Canada? Knocked up? Dead? How you doing? I miss you sometimes.

All the time.

Write back soon. And remember this: i’ll always love you, even if I say I don’t at a certain moment in time.

I don’t know why I am so creeped out by messages I composed to myself to read from two years ago, but I am. I’m also glad to report I am neither knocked up NOR dead. You guys should do it to yourselves. It’s a lot of fun!

    Whenever I start a new journal I write a note in the back addressed to ‘GIRL OF THE FUTURE,’ in big futuristic letters, covering my current life situation at that point and reminding myself that even if there are no spacecars by the time I read the note, the future is cool. 🙂
