Dear Future Me,

Hey yawl!

Since this is my 3rd December as a blogger (note that I am a neutral party in the War on Christmas). There are a couple of holiday traditions for The Sardonic Sideshow.

1. Year in Review: I’m working on it – it’s been a hell of a year.

2. New Year Resolutions.

Now the second one is usually something dumb like “Pluck my eyebrows every week.” or “Shower.” Something mocking the idea of making resolutions.

Anyway, I bring this up because there is this site called Futureme.org. It’s a virtual time capsule done by email. Basically, you send your future self an email up to 30 years in the future. You could chose, of course to have the email sent to you the next day or any other time in between.

Scroll through the public ones. It’s a site dedicated to beating yourself up before hand for things you know you won’t do in the future.

This is a weird topic. I find that when I read my journals from when I was a teenager, my present self thinks I was a total idiot. Which makes me think that my future self will think my now present self is a total idiot. Then maybe ‘wisdom’ is building an immunity to caring that you were/are an idiot.

I’ve just drowned in my own deepness.

Check out the site anyway. Cheers.

    I did this a few months ago — and I asked very specific questions of my future self. Try as I might, I can’t remember what those questions were. Er… are. Will be. ARRRGGGHHHHH!!!!

    I had it in my favorite places list, but I kept going there accidentally when I meant to go to the one right above it.

    It got to be too much pressure, so I deleted it.
