Write a letter to yourself in 20 years..
Future me! What’s up bro. Hopefully you don’t still talk like that. If you do, props for making it in the world with an accent straight outta Pineapple Express. I hope by now that you/me have at least conquered the world. Twenty years is almost a fourth of our lifetime, and if you haven’t stomped out the idiots I try so hard to ignore, then I’m not sure what future I have. Tell your wife I love her.
What’s it like there? It’s 2012 in my dimension, and according to my memory bank’s records back from 2000, we’ve destroyed almost every technological prediction ever made. Suffice to say, I cannot fathom the immense intrusion that electronic entertainment (and advertising), has made into your life. Shelter our children, if we have any yet.
The key to genius in this world is ignorance of what doesn’t matter. That is almost everything with a screen or power cable, unless power cables no longer exist. A real possibility, considering the recent introduction in my world of a charging pad that will charge your devices wirelessly. This stuff is blowing my mind. Either way, make sure our kids are smart before they’re educated.
Above all, I hope you stayed true to who I am. I know that is my biggest fear, and has been throughout my youth and into adolescence. Don’t hate people who don’t know what they’re doing, and remember that those same people make up 99.9% of people in your life. Don’t give any sh*ts about what people might be thinking. But hey, thanks for keeping me alive till 2032.
