I use FutureMe.org to send myself future e-mails sometimes. It’s nice. I just got one this morning:
The following is an e-mail from the past, composed on Tuesday, February 19, 2008, and sent via FutureMe.org - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
12:48 PM FordSploder556: Leaving for Iraq tonight. Cya. 1:00 PM FordSploder556 has gone offline.
So, it’s week 10 of winter quarter again. I’m failing all of my classes except for figure drawing. I have this crazy “grade laundering” scheme (as dad is calling it) to stay the rest of the quarter, switch to the college of business for spring, and then transfer to a new university for fall. I don’t know where I’ll end up yet. I want to go somewhere warmer, but I want to stay on east of the Mississippi. Josh showed me Baldwin-Wallace yesterday when I was visiting him in Cleveland (one month officially with him, plus Valentine’s Day weekend <3) and it seemed nice, but a little too plain and boring. I want a college with character and geekiness and quirks. I can find that anywhere, I guess… I don’t know.
This summer, Josh and I are hoping to be counselors for Open Hearts Camp. David is looking at our references now and we should know in a week or so if we’re in. It would be super exciting to do that for the summer. Whether we get in or not, Josh and I have decided that we’ll definitely be in the same place for summer (though where that will be, we don’t know yet).
My parents have started to move down to North Carolina. They found a great house, sold ours in Eldersburg, and should be settled by mid-March. I’m really happy for them, but it leaves me sort of “homeless.”
Dani and Rob seem to be getting along brilliantly, as do Derek and Sophie and Joanna and Brooks. Ben and Kat are spending more time together recently. Hmmm?
I’m suppose to start teaching Swing Dance Club with Derek in spring quarter, and I was suppose to live with him, Kara, and Geoff in the fall… but I guess that won’t be happening.
How’s the War on Scientology going? Are you happy yet? Where are you? Lars and Babs just got engaged on Valentine’s, do they have a date for the wedding set yet? Where is Joanna? How is Ross? Who are your close friends now? Have you spoken to Chris yet? Tomorrow is Scott’s birthday. He’ll be 16 or 17. Send him something?
I hope your life is on track now and more stable than it is here in 2008. Don’t forget to go visit Adam Holwerda sometime and make a sweet lip dub.
“Dani’s mom: So magenta is a figment of our imaginations?
Dani’s dad: You mean *pigment* of our imaginations.”—Dani’s awesome parents talking about that article about magenta not actually existing. I love them so much.
