Birthdays never get old (pun intended).
Every year for the past three years, since watching this episode of How I Met Your Mother, I write myself a letter on my birthday. The letter started as one from a younger me to an older me. Eventually, the focus changed to writing from an older me to a younger me. That is, from future-me to current-me. Does it sound twisted yet? Let this paragraph from last year’s later explain:
I get it now. I get why the letter is from an older me to a younger me, even though it is an older me that will be reading it. It is because of the importance of retaining a consistent idea of what future David should be like. In writing to a younger me, I am merely reinforcing the image of the future which I need to be working toward. Now, this is not very straightforward, David, but you have been known to complicate things. Deal with it.
