Dear Self, Stop pining for the friends you have lost. To quote The Beatles: “let it be” already! Instead, find ways to appreciate the friends you have now.
Dear Friends That I Have Now, Thanks for being awesome. Especially those of you who send me emails, chats, and letters in my far flung corner of the world. I love you all!
Dear Tofu, That was funny when I tried to read your Korean packaging, right? Let’s both be glad the supermarket employee stepped in to help. Don’t worry, I will figure out how to make you delicious.
Dear Rory Gilmore, I downloaded Season 3, you know, the one with Jess. YOU know. Let’s hang out this weekend.
Dear Ernest Hemingway, I’m sorry I didn’t give you a fair chance in college. Your power of utilizing words with deep meaning and great brevity is worthy of my esteem. The Sun Also Rises is tied with The Great Gatsby for my favorite “lost generation” novel.
