Dear 2015

Dear 2015,

In case you weren't sure, 2014 was a good year for me. It was. I'm absolutely certainly positive it was.

Here's a list of things that made it awesome:

-I went to Korea.
-I started a new book and finished the first draft.
-I got baptized.
-I blogged.
-I discovered YouTube.
-I made videos.
-I worked at the Snack Shack and made money.
-I started a club.

It was pretty awesome.

Now I'm hoping you can top that list. Each year, I want you, Rachel/Rcubed, to do something more magnificent, something better, something awesomer. I want you to shoot for the stars and to have no regrets.

The Main Thing I'd like you to do in 2015 is:
-Finish your edits by March.

That's all I want you to do. Also, a blog revamping, a YouTube channel, a Twitter, and a driver's license (you'll be turning 16, after all) might also be in order. Also, a job. (A real one. Try the Habit.) But first--AGENT. (Also, try not to crash into any cars.)

Dear Rcubed of 2015, please don't do anything crazy. Or stupid. You do have a tendency to lean that way, you know. 

Also, please do well on your SAT. You may be taking the SAT in 2016 (I have no idea), but I hope you do okay on it. And do morning Elite! Not afternoon! All your friends will be in morning Elite! Okay?

Also, PRACTICE. TENNIS. I don't care if you don't feel like it, practice. You will be team captain of varsity!

You will!

And read. Read your study Bible. I just started Jeremiah; try to finish it, okay? Also, it'd be wonderful if you finally finish Psalms.

Stay with God.

Last but not least...don't drink or do drugs (not that I think you're going to) and TELL ME HOW PITCH PERFECT 2 was.  (I didn't think the trailer was very magnetic.) And Avengers 2. And Kingsman. And Girl Meets World Season 2. How did Pinocchio end?! How did Keeper of the Lost Cities end?!

Anyway...I hope you're doing well. Say hi to yourself for me.



  1. Haha, I love this letter. It's short, sweet, simple and humorous. I think it's great to reach for something more magnificent every single year, and that's exactly what I want to do with my life. I would love to finish editing some WIPs and maybe start querying agents by the end of the year. Maybe. It's scary, but the only way I can ever get published is by ignoring my fears and leaping right in. Oh gosh. SATs are pretty scary too. I also really want to read my Bible some more too and do my own Bible study. Good luck with all of your goals!

  2. You got baptised! Thats awesome :) 2014 sounded great for you! I hope 2015 is even better :)

    Your letter made me smile :)

    It's weird, because I did the same thing about my birthday over at my blog and I hadn't even read this post at that point xD

    1. Haha wow great minds think alike!

  3. 2014 sounds awesome! 2015 is going to be awesome-er!
