To my girls at 25 Walnut,
The last month of college was probably one of the hardest things I've gone through to this day. It tested my relationships with many people and I'm glad that you were there to support me. Whether that meant dragging me out of bed and taking a "walk" down to State St. or binge watching the Kardashians (hi, Steph), I hope you know that I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.
To Meg and Steph:
It probably wasn't easy having a (random) girl start living with you out of the blue. But you both welcomed me into the crazy house that I soon called my own. I can't thank you enough for making the transition that much easier for me. I'm so glad that we got to spend my last 30 days together.
To Meggy and Kris:
If that isn't coming full circle, I don't know what is. I am so glad that I got to spend my four years at school with the two of you and that we ended on the best note possible. I really can't express how much I love you guys in one letter but I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! I hope that all of these emotions are flying from my computer screen to yours.
Ok, enough with the waterworks, let's meet at Dillinger's?
To those experiencing the post-graduate struggle,
Let's be honest. It's a really difficult and frustrating time right now. We graduated from a 4 year institution that provided us with a document that states how we have some fancy major and all of these accomplishments under our belt yet we can't land a job.
Ok, my dilemma isn't even landing a job right now but more along the lines of finding what I want to do. I don't even know what career path to take, do you? Maybe I'm all by myself on this one but someone give me a shout because I'm praying that I'm not alone!
All throughout my undergraduate career I thought that I knew what I wanted to do, I really thought I figured myself out...boy was I wrong. I hear from people who are in their 40's and 50's that our 20's are a time to explore and test out the "real world" waters. How are we supposed to explore when a majority of the time I feel like a headless chicken, running around New York City...
*edit: I couldn't even finish this letter because my thoughts were all over the place...I'll continue this once I gather my thoughts. But I hope someone out there understands my frustration*
As a fellow calligrapher, I stumbled across your Instagram page and fell in love. As someone, like myself, with very minimal art credentials, I am always searching for inspiration and amazing taste. So here comes PaperSoul ... I really liked the idea of #ThePostScriptProject and decided to give myself a project as well.
With the hustle and bustle of life today, I feel as though the beauty of a handwritten letter is slowly fading. So, I thank you and Helena for collaborating and creating an inspiring project.
(I also really hope that you both don't mind that I am joining this bandwagon.)
I hope these next 100 days of creating allow me to rediscover some of my own hobbies, interests as well as allowing me to think and dig a little deeper with each letter. I also hope that it teaches me dedication and persistence because this whole calligraphy thing is a lot harder than I ever imagined.
Ok, I think that's all I wanted to say... thanks again for inspiring me and making a difference in this world, no matter how big or small.
Wishing you the best,
