a letter to myself, aged 13

i believe i told wuastc several days ago that i would post with her tag "tomorrow." (and as far as the link goes, well, dude, she is right there to the right in my pals list. if you can't figure it out, i dunno what to tell ya!)

the words you're looking for, o beloved non-existants, are "bout goddamn time!"

dear 13-year-old darth,

god, you are a whiner, and you know what? nobody fucking cares. that is both good and bad. good, cause you will learn to count on yourself before anyone else, bad cause if you keep it up, you aint gonna have any friends.

however, if you learn to turn it into a sarcastic joke, people will dig that. they like a guy who has a sense of humor and can laugh at himself.

i know (cause i remember) that you think everything is shit right now, and doesn't show signs of getting better. well, it does get better. but it's gonna take some time, and some patience on your part. but it will, trust me.

you're gonna learn alot about yourself. you're gonna have lots of fun. at the same time, you are gonna hate yourself bitterly, and rail against the world alot.

if i can offer a few tips to you without fucking up the time-space continuum (and what the fuck, cause you aint gonna listen anyhow, so fucking self-absorbed are you), i would say: the sooner you accept the fact that you are both yin and yang, good and evil, and whatever else, in the same person, the happier you'll be. the sooner you quit worrying about yourself so much, and start taking an interest in others, the happier you'll be. the sooner you quit living your life according to the expectations of people that, frankly, you will never be able to please, and start living your life the way you want, the happier you'll be.

pour yourself into your talents, they are your therapy. writing, music, art, any others you take an interest in, these things will get you through the next several years and some very tough times. no, sod you, i aint giving you details, it would completely change my present.

oh, and i promise you, you will grow into your nose and glasses, and you will fill out some and not be so scrawny anymore.

most importantly, all the shit you are going through now, and will go through in the next 13 years, will make you what i am today, which really aint so bad, honestly. actually, it is pretty damn cool. so just tough it out, with the wit and sarcasm, and things will be ok, down the road.

your loving you,

36-year-old darth

hmmm five people to tag. this is always the tough one. i would most definitely love to hear(read) what lady macleod would say to her 13-year-old self, and krissie, blogget probably, maybe queeny, and prada pixie if she hasn't already been tagged, which she probably has, but oh well. one more for the road, heh heh.

oh and i did queeny's drinking test thing or whatever it was (i tried to link it. i fucked it up royally. if you wanna see what i am talking about, go to her blog and click the link. i aint technically savvy enough to pull it off), and i wrang in at 80% for the rank of lush. yeah, sounds bout right, hahaha.

I would ONLY do this for you... on Monday then..

My internet connection down here has been dodgy at best of late so I have not been visiting much and posting not as frequently. When I get back from Paris I shall seek a solution. Happy Christmas to you and your delightful family!

This sounds like fun, Darth, though it'll take my old-fart brain a minute or two to reflect on my life as a 13-year-old. Must've been a good year, cause I remember all the bad shit. Anyway, look for it soon.
