Going Out In My Mailbag Today: 1 Item!

Item #1: Letter to My Friend Tory!

Clearly I finished this letter rather quickly :) I sort of just got to be on a roll after rereading her letter a few times, and I brought it with me to school and did some of my writing there and on the bus as well. It felt pretty good to get through a letter that quickly, and I know I didn't rush it; I took my time, paced myself, and wrote from the heart. I really mean it with this letter because Tory and I had a lot to discuss.

In the letter she asked me about my new boyfriend, and she expressed some concern for the other girls in our small circle of friends, wondering if she was worrying unnecessarily. I put a lot of thought into what I wrote down for her and made sure I made my thoughts and feelings clear. Like I've mentioned numerous times already (and what I'm sure I'll be saying numerous times more for all of you), I am better at expressing myself over writing than when I'm speaking to somebody in person. It's certainly an ideal way to communicate with my friend all the way in London.

Truth be told, with writing about our mutual friends and thinking about each one of them, separately and together, I was very much in the mood to get to writing and sending each of them the cards I purchased with the sole intention of just telling each of them how they are great people and how much they all mean to me. I had them pulled out to begin writing and everything.

Unfortunately, this was also the day I had an assignment that I needed to finish up, and I knew that if I got into writing out these detailed messages to my friends that I would really be SOL in regards to my homework. After I was finished my assignment, as I expressed in my last post, I then got a bit tied up with online shopping, which is a cunning time suck if there ever was one, as well as quite the financial suck on top of that XP

I'm hoping to get those cards written up soon. I also had a thought recently. I was thinking that I might do a blog post about how I send a letter. Whenever I write a letter, I include it inside of a note card, and I always take time to decorate the inside of the card as well as the outside of the envelope with various stickers, stamps and other things. If anybody would be interested in seeing my process with sending a letter to somebody, let me know and I'll document the process for when I write Diana's letter.

Until then, I'll keep you all posted!
