Q. Hi Oracle,
As the last assignment for history class, we have to create a personal history by writing ourselves a letter. Our teacher will keep these letters sealed and addressed for 5 years and then mail them back to us in 2018... Any suggestions as to what to say to the future 21-year-old me?!
Thanks,
Celine :)


The Oracle replies:

What a great thing to do! Write down what is going on in your life now; thoughts, feelings, experiences, likes/dislikes, hopes/fears - that kind of thing.
It will be interesting to also write down where you see yourself in 5 years time and what you would like to have achieved by then.
It will be interesting in 5 years time to see whether your life panned out how you expected or took a totally different turn and maybe even a better direction that you thought or hoped for.
I might write one for myself!
