Dear Past Self

For the first assignment, I chose “A Letter to Yourself as a Child”.

Dear younger self,

You are 12 years old and you are about to start your first year of middle school, congrats! I know you’re scared and anxious to begin a new life at a new school, but things will be fine. Although you’re scared to make some new friends since most of your friends from elementary school went to a different middle school, you will eventually make friends through some trial and error.

A few words of advice I have are, don’t be too stressed and just be yourself! You end up making a lot of friends this way, so theres no need to try and be something you’re not. Don’t judge a book by its cover, and appreciate the easy work middle school has to offer! I know at age 12, the workload of a middle schooler can seem rough, but when you enter high school and then college you will learn to appreciate how easy you had it back in middle school.

Keep your head up, everything will be alright :)
