Letters to friends at the end of junior year

**this doesn’t even cover half of what I want to say to half of the people I want to say it to but it was nice to get at least some of it down in writing. 

Dear 1,

I will forever love the fact that you never sugarcoat anything.
You’re one of the sweetest and most thoughtful people I know, but you don’t let anything get in the way of your honesty. You channel your thoughtfulness into constructed opinions that are well-rounded and understanding of existing context. I sometimes don’t know how to tell people what my real opinion is, but you rarely are and I admire that so much.

Dear Possibility-

you carry yourself with certain uncertainty and I wonder why that is.  Continue reading

My dear queen/embodiment of pretty much everything I aspire to be in life,

This letter probably won’t even cover half of what I wish I could put into words. Honestly, it may be about as sequential as Ralph Ellison’s “On Bird, Bird-Watching, and Jazz” (not even close to being as well written, though… unfortunately).

I came into the year as a pretentious fifteen-year-old who thought she was the most thoughtful, understanding, and worldly person simply because she had just returned from a three-week trip to India two days before school started. Now I exist as a still-rather-pretentious-but-at-least-slightly-better sixteen year old who will forever be thankful that she decided to take AP English instead of going the simpler route.  Continue reading

Dear E,

I promised myself that I would send the letters from Tiana and I to you as soon as she finished hers, but that happened four days ago and for some reason I can’t bring myself to seal and send these off. Maybe it’s because I still feel like there’s more to say to you? I’m not entirely sure, but I figured I would just write more. I also asked Bo and Beth to write letters for you, so I’m waiting for them to send me theirs so I can pass them on your way.  Continue reading

Hello E,

So I may or may not currently live with M, and she may or may not be asking me to write this. Anyways, I’m Tiana and I’m from Vermont, the land of maple syrup and cows.  Continue reading

Letters to No One || Part One

December 14th, 2013

Dear E,

I’m enclosing in this letter another letter from my friend/suitemate, Tiana. (She wouldn’t let me read it, so what’s in it is a total surprise to me. If you want to tell me then I’ll love you infinitely.)
