|This was taken about two weeks before I wrote the letter.|
As if she wasn't perfect enough already, before the semester ended she had each one of her students right a letter to their future selves. She promised she would mail them to us in two years. Well folks, it's been two years and my mama forwarded it to me since I had it sent to my home in Utah.
For the life of me, I could not remember what I had written so I was super excited to read it! It starts off with the following:
Right now, I'm not entirely sure where I'll be in 2 years. Perhaps I'll be attending UVU still. Are you in the nursing program? Because the 2 years younger version of you hopes that you are!

An idea I had the other day for the summer of 2012 or 2013 is that you should go work at Disney Land! Curtis will be on his mission and you need something to keep yourself busy so you should consider it.
WHAT THE WHAT?!? I did not know that I had actually considered it before I applied one year later. How did I forget that? The point is, I think it's actually cool that I actually achieved one of my goals. That's very rare for me so it makes me quite happy.
I also talk about Curtis a lot (duh). Gosh, I was so scared for him to go on his mission. And though it has its good days and bad days, it's survivable, past self.

Dear 17 year old Alex,
Right now you live on your own in Florida where you work in the entertainment department at WALT DISNEY WORLD. Also, Curtis has been out for 263 days as of today and guess what. It's okay. You're doing fine. And so is he! Life is good. Don't worry so much about the future because everything works out in the end.
With deepest sincerity,
20 year old you
PS Tonight you will be going to see Tangled with Curtis and it becomes your new favorite movie. <<< I remember that date like it was yesterday, you guys. One of my favorites. Have fun!
