A blast from the past

Today I got a letter from the past.

I had totally forgotten about this, but one year ago I had written a letter to myself on FutureMe.

So when I just checked my email inbox, I found this:

Dear FutureMe,

it is going to be interesting to see what happened to you since we last saw each other a year ago. 
So, let’s catch up, fill me in: Have you become the cupcake-making award-promising journalist you wanted to be? Did the BBC get back to you? 

And then, after some rambling about coffee amongst other things, it says:

Now, let me tell you a little bit about myself. Today, I cleaned the flat (you remember: London, Kentish Town, the flat you were sharing with the psycho-lady and the other girl) from top to bottom. 3 1/2 Hours pure cleaning. Felt good and everything was sparkling afterwards. Then I made some really delicious cupcakes. I had to change the recipe a little bit, because I bought the wrong ingredients, but they turned out lovely. Watched the X Factor and was slightly annoyed because Simon Cowell insulted New Zealand, sort of. But nevermind. Also, I made a robot-amigurumi. I might take it to work on Monday… we’ll see… 
Let’s catch up and have coffee together at some stage (which would a bit like a sequence from ‘Time Traveller’s Wife, haha).

Love, 
Me.

So funny!

And quite interesting to look back at what I did a year ago and what turns the road of my life has taken.

In case you’re curious: the BBC didn’t get back to me because I didn’t get back to them.

And I’m not a cupcake-making award-promising journo either, but I think it’s fair to say I’m well on the way of becoming a journalism-trained pastry chef (and that’s basically the same, right!?).

And – OMG – I’m so glad I don’t have to share that flat with the psycho lady anymore (the other girl was lovely, by the way, we’re still in touch via facebook)!

You know what happened the day after I had sent the letter to my future self and cleaned the flat from top to bottom?

She (psycho lady – I call her that because she was a psychologist) made a mess and everything was dirty and filthy again. God knows how she managed that.

So all in all I can say I’m quite happy about things have turned out (even without the BBC) and I’m looking forward to see what happens until next year.

Have you ever written a letter to your future self? 

{P.S.: These were the cupcakes we’re talking about.}
