Letter to Myself

Recently, I got back my letter that I wrote myself during Carolina Kickoff. Here it is, transferred and launched into the expanse of the virtual world:


August 16, 2013

Dear Jennifer,

Right now, you’re at Carolina Kickoff. You’re feeling a little bit lost and a little bit lonely. You’re happy cause you made several acquaintances, and one genuine friend. Being away from home hasn’t completely hit you yet, but it’s slowly trickling in. Even though you’re feeling a bit down right now, keep hope in the near future — there’s great people here. You just have to find that special group of friends that you truly connect with. Remember this, and remind yourself: you’re here for a great education. This is a great institution. Don’t think of yourself above this. Don’t be bitter about what you got. Count your blessings. God will always be with you, no matter where you are. In all that you do, do what pleases Him. Love Him. Never doubt yourself or the decisions you make. But also make smart decisions. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. So yeah…my goal for this semester are:

  • To work hard
  • To play hard (smartly and moderately)
  • Get a high GPA/do the best I possibly can
  • Find a great campus fellowship
  • Make good friends
  • Call home at least a couple times a week
  • Workout and be healthy
  • Be involved in lots of clubs & activities
  • Love God and worship Him every day
  • Love yourself and stay strong

OKAY! Don’t make a fool of yourself.
