What I wrote one year ago:
I didn’t actually post on 3/26/08, but I wrote this one day earlier. I’m actually kind of proud of that one (especially because Bryan and Marie said they liked it). I did send the letter through http://www.lettersfromhomeprogram.org/, but never got a response. As you can see, I didn’t really expect one.
A funny side note, when the law school set up a table for this program, I was late for class as I ran past it. I thought they were taking entire letters, but apparently all they were looking for was for you to sign your name to a strip of paper that said “we support the troops.” So after class, and after I posted it to the RT, I had to walk up to that table and hand them a three page letter. It might as well have been a copy of War and Peace, as compared to the pieces of paper everyone else was holding.
I played it off like I was all way cool and totally more patriotic than everyone else, but it was pretty obvious I just wrote something without actually seeing what the program was. Oh well. Hopefully someone got a kick out of my dumbassery.
What I wrote one year and thirteen days ago:
A year from now, my life will have radically changed, for better or for worse. I graduate this May, I take the bar this July, and I start a new job this Whenever. By then, we’ll be planning for my Dad’s Super Sweet 60 in Ireland, we’ll have one- and two-year-old daughters, I’ll have lost even more hair (please see previous comment about having one- and two-year-old daughters), and we’ll definitely be living under a roof that we own.
I thank God every minute of my life that everything in this paragraph still rings true (except for the house part, but that will change in exactly five days).
To my future self, please update our readers on these things I currently have going on:
-I bought a lotto ticket today. Did you win?
Yeah, I totally won. I’m blogging this from my golden yacht.
-Today is 3.14. Did you eat pie today? (Get it?)
I did eat pie on 3/14/08, but I don’t remember who made it. This is kind of weird, by the way.
-I took the MPRE last weekend. Did you pass? Did you ever frickin’ pass?
I did. Even though it took me two tries. Bygones.
BufBloPoFo Topic for DAYFOURTEEN
DUDES. One more post and you’ll have done it. You’ll have posted every day for FOURTEEN DAYS STRAIGHT. Or a fortnight, if you will.
So are you sad it’s almost done? Are you going to miss all of your fellow participants? Well, your assignment is to give us a farewell speech. I’m continually amazed that anyone decided to play along with the BufBloPoFo. I say you take it easy tomorrow for your last day and just post a quick “so long” to your fellow participants.
