30 Day Challenge - Post 9: Someone You Wish You Could Meet
(When I first read who this letter was to be addressed to, the names of celebrities popped into my mind; Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Idina Menzel, and Carol Burnett, to name a few, are all extremely powerful, talented women and I aspire to be like every one of them someday. But then I really put deep thought into who I’d like to meet and this is what I came up with…)
Dear Nonno Joe and Nonno Mario,
Even though you both passed away while I was very young and I remember practically nothing about you, I still wish so much that I had more time with you. Whenever Mommy and Daddy tell me stories about you, it makes me upset that I never got to know either of you. I know you were both amazing grandfathers and that you’re always watching over me, and I hope I make you both proud.
30 Day Challenge: Post 7 - Your ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/love/crush
I’m going to write about an ex-crush because I feel like it.
I wasted way too much time on you and I’m mad at myself for not realizing it earlier. I’m not going to ponder on the past; I don’t want to spend more time regretting meeting you and exploring all of the possible “what if…” scenarios. I want to thank you for opening my eyes to people like you and how your mind functions because now I know never to get involved with your kind again. After seeing you the other day for the first time in a while, I was honestly stumped as to what I ever saw in you. Yeah, I’m glad we’re past the fighting and we’re “friends” now, and of course I could’ve done without liking you and letting most of my thoughts revolve around you for five months, but I don’t regret anything. Everything happens for a reason, even if the reason doesn’t make itself obvious right away. So I’m glad I met you; I’m glad we talked; I’m glad you blew me off countless times; I’m glad we had the most nonsensical fights; I’m glad you didn’t bother hiding your interest in one of my best friends; I’m glad I found out that you hooked up with another girl, and that that same girl was also playing you; I’m glad I finally found the courage to tell you off; I’m glad you thought about me during the time that we didn’t talk; I’m glad you’re basically no one to me now - because all of this made me a stronger person.
You’re a waste of life, and I wish you all the much needed best.
