a letter to my 28-year-old-self

09/08/14


“I remember going to my 10-year high school reunion; I was never friends with anybody, and that’s kind of why I went, as a sociological study. What was fascinating was that the people who were deemed antisocial and freaks in high school were now incredibly attractive and well-adjusted. There seemed to be some sort of catharsis about growing up and being alone that made you rely on yourself. What that seems to do, I think, is—the nature of creating, film, painting, whatever—you look to create those things that are lacking in your life. I never used to speak, and all of a sudden you find yourself in an environment where you have to speak to hundreds of people during a day. I’m still not great at that, but I’ve gotten better. We’re weird, hopefully self-healing organisms.” —Tim Burton, Film Comment, 1994 
Can we have a thunderous applause for Tim Burton. That's deep, i have to say. And fyi yesterday was my birthday... i'm getting old ughhh. I'm 18 now. And on the last minute of my day, I wrote this letter for myself 10 years from now. Its midnight and I ate a lof of sushi for dinner, so I'm sorry if it was a bit.... questionable? I put a bunch of stickers on it then scanned it. I wish i still can read this letter 10 years from now.
