Write a letter to yourself and seal it to open in 5 years.
Five years later, I opened the sealed envelope with no memory of what I had written, and the contents made me laugh. At 11 years of age, I had my life plotted out before me with startling clarity -- from jobs and accomplishments to the year I would meet my future husband and the order of children I would have. To my 16-year-old mind, it was incredibly childish and unrealistic.
Now I see there was some truth in that early prediction, although the timing was off. And I have continued to write letters to myself every year to be opened 5 years later, usually on my birthday. Sometimes the letter is only a page long. Sometimes it resembles a small book. And it is always fun.
Can it be done in a blog?
Earlier this month, Anne-girl (see post here ) posted a time-traveler letter for her blog. Since I have enjoyed my personal letters so much, I am going to try this, too.
Here is what I am going to do: I am going to write and publish a time-traveler post but it will be scheduled for 1 year from today. We'll see how it looks then!
