Dear Future Me...
Penny is 30, from Woodbridge and is in her third year of a foundation degree in Bioscience.Writing for Student life allows her to take a break, get creative and write something a bit different.
Have they happened yet? The diabolical what-ifs we are carrying around like a nauseating weight residing in our chest with the same entitlement as our heart. Have they happened yet?
I’m willing to wager that most of the hurdles along the way weren’t even on our radar.
I hope we have discovered the elusive formula for preventing the waste of so much life and so many unique moments when they are touched by panic and worry over what is to come next. Please try.
Our body has only ever done its best for us. If we are still trying to be everything at once; the scholar, the gym goer, the friend, then be kinder to it. Don’t put it down so much, it is the only one we will ever have. Please try.
We work hard, and it seems it’s this that makes us happy (who could have known?) so keep it up, it has served us well so far just don’t be too alone.
I hope we are proud. I hope they are proud.
We’ve got this.
Ps. How many cats do we have?
