"Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)"
this is an interesting one. i am quite awful in imagining my future self, for i want too many things for too many times, so i'd go only with the bonus question instead.
dear soon-to-be 13 year old puji maharani,
you have just graduated from primary school and are starting your days in secondary school. enjoy them. do not listen to your teachers who think that skipping classes for joining competitions is wrong. have fun having legitimate days of not attending school. keep your expectations low, regardless how pushy your teachers can be - they have their own politics and it is none of your business. keep yourself humble. seek for more positive thoughts during hard times. do not give up on your swimming lessons. build friendships and keep them last. cherish every moment with everyone - they do not stay forever. and you will go abroad to study, so stick with that particular dream.
from bangkok with love,
your future self
