Hi, how are you doing? We are doing well on this side of time travel. I am writing to just check on you and give you a heads up on a few things.
Please stop praying about the headmaster having a change of heart so that you can start growing your hair. That will not happen. They said that we need to be clean shaven because water is a problem and they do not need lice in school. We actually went on and in high school we had bomb hair which we later destroyed with perms after high school. Now it just looks like a blob of uncooperative strands of sisal. We have tried everything, twist outs, Shea butter, coconut oil but nothing seems to do the trick.
Random bouts of laughter
We still do this a lot. People still look at me and wonder what is wrong with me. Don’t worry; this makes us unique and approachable sometimes. Our teeth make this a risky decision because our dental arrangement is messed up now. I didn’t get any braces and for that I am sorry, really sorry.
You know how you are getting good marks now? That doesn’t last. I am sorry to say. We got distracted for a very long while and the teachers are still in denial. They think that I went to a national school! We did very badly in the KCSE if you can fix that please do. We are not badly off now, we have numerous blonde moments but we have survived. If you can please choose another degree because we are barely using the one we studied for.
We haven’t grown much vertically but horizontally, we have. I can now not see the collar bones you hated so much. We look healthy, a bit too healthy now. I am telling you this so that in your vision board you don’t put down ‘Victoria secrets model/angel” because that is currently not happening.
We got very comfortable in our intelligence and that is why it escaped us for a while. What you need to do is plan for most of the scenarios. Revise; learn about schools in both the national and provincial categories. Look for a career prospect and yes, that is how career is spelt not courier. I told you dumbness started a bit too early. You love gossip a bit too much, can you also please turn it down a bit.
You think you are confused now! Think again. We get more confused and awkward so brace yourself. Life has been kind but it is just because people give us the benefit of the doubt. We forget things a lot because we can’t keep a single thought in our head. We are all over the place and talk a lot to compensate.
We are doing well. We won an award, who thought getting good composition grades would make us somewhat good writers. We are taking leaps and are now in debt because we bought a camera for a YouTube channel. I am not so bad in front of the camera which makes it enjoyable. I am working hard at this by learning a lot of things. We still despise being told what to do which is okay because we do the things we want how we want them and that has been working fine. So stop being timid, I need you to reach this age being more assertive than I currently am. Dare to dream, Make friends and lots of them. We are still not good at that
I have better sense because I refuse to wear tops with J-Lo’s face and jeans with safety pins on the knee section. What fashion sense is that! This is just embarrassing. We wear hoodies a lot now because, why not? We try on dresses and go out of the house in them; it feels good after it stops feeling weird.
I do not need you to change anything, just be sure of yourself and we are going to make it young girl. We are making it!
