It was one of the moments I had been waiting for the past four years of my high school career. It was finally time to pick out my senior quote from the yearbook. This was my time to shine and try and show everyone how witty and bright I was with only a line or two. It had to be something clever and something that represent my high school experience. "No pressure," I thought to myself as I looked down at the senior survey that Mr. Bonneville had handed out to everyone. In February, I had decided that for my quote, I was going to use “life’s short, talk fast,” from the early 2000s TV show Gilmore Girls.
This is a letter I wrote to an ex-boyfriend before we got together. I like writing letters to people. I write lots of them and they seem to help me sort out how I'm feeling. I change names to protect identity.
