Dear Future Self,
Hello Future Self. it is me Ben. How are you? Are you healthy? We are stuck in quarantine/ Covid-19/ Coronavirus. During quarantine you have to wear masks and gloves just if you want. I am feeling good because I don’t go anywhere.
I am very good at soccer and I like soccer because it’s really fun. I have really good footwork. Do you still like to play soccer? Do you like basketball, soccer, football or baseball? I’m also good at building forts and climbing trees. I like climbing trees because it is really easy to get on the branches. I like to do pull-ups on branches. I like making forts because when I was 10 I made a tree fort by putting plywood in a tree and now I have a rope swing off there and a balance beam. I used to have a bed in there that I made with two platforms and it had three floors. I like that I made it with my friend Riker. Do you remember our tree fort? I hope that you remember it. I think that you should improve it.
Some things that are important to me right now are my family, my dog and my friends. Why my family is important to me is because family is always important. My dog is important to me because we’ve had her since she was a baby. My friends are Cole, Bryson, Jaxson, Korbin and lots more people at my school. My friend Riker is a good friend who I play with everyday.
One goal that I have right now is to improve my tree fort. Another goal is to try to climb onto my roof without a ladder. The last goal I have to tell you about is that I’m trying to ride my bike around the neighborhood without getting tired even up the really hard hills. What are some of your goals?
Something I recommend is that you are nice to your friends and you aren’t bullying anybody because I don’t want you to grow up as a bully. Another piece of advice that I have is that you will want to have a lot of friends so if somebody is being mean to you they can have your back.
I hope the next 60 years are good!
Ben at 10 years old
