Notes To Self

I recently read a really great letter written by Tangled Up In Blue to her younger self here. I even commented on it saying, this is probably what I would have written to my younger self too! 

But yesterday evening, as I was cooking in my kitchen (I am really not very good at it, but advantage Annie - I find cooking interesting so I am eager to perfect it!), it was my first proper dinner making and I burnt the bhindi :P and Nutties came in and propped himself next to me, crowding me in our little kitchen. I told him to get out of my kitchen in a very irritated voice and to that.. well lets just say, my bhindi burned even more. :) 

So if I had to write a letter to my younger self I would be -

Dear 15-year old Annie,

I have nothing much to tell you, except that keep doing the things you are doing right now. 

You are going to make a truck load of mistakes and seriously screw up sometimes. But you know what? You are doing it all right. You will manage to land yourself into spectacularly disastrous situations but, please, keep doing that. You have so much to learn, and there is no way in hell you will be as awesome as you are right now if you didn't make all those mistakes. So yes, keep screwing up. :) They are just important lessons. And when you have had all those lessons, you will meet Mr. Right and it will be the best thing that ever happened to you. Things will work out just fine, kid. :)

Oh and a little heads up, for the love of God, learn how to cook! :P

Love,
Annie.
P.S: You already know which of the friends are going to stick it out with you, and you are right. They will share the bed with you and gossip all night long before your wedding day. It will be AWESOME! :)

So, if you had to write a letter to your younger self, what would it say? 

~ Annie.
P.S: My house looks like a hostel right now, living with a guy is annoying sometimes! :/

I did something like this last year too. And then I wrote a letter to my future self as well. But that all lies in my diary. And hell yeah, cooking is awesome. I am still perfecting it and the best way to do it is by trial and error. You will get there! :D

Nice! I would def tell my 15 year old self to go get a life. Ugh. I was SO introverted back then. Now I cringe when I think of all the good times I missed. :P

Still too young to write a letter to my younger self, but yes, before I graduate, I will surely do it.
P.S. The last line made me laugh. My guy would probably be neater than I am. ^.^

This tradition of writing a letter to our younger selves has caught on so fast! =D It's almost 5 of us already! Anyway, this seems like a good place to be in. Following you up! :)

That's a whole lot of letters to oneself flowin' around blogger! :D
Haha this was sweet stuff. And about the house looking like a hostel? Yeah. I'd know. Completely different context tho, I share a room with my brother :P
Nevertheless, I know the feeling :/

P.s- I quite like your blog :)

I love doing activities like this. It is really helpful to talk to yourself in written form.
