It's time to write a message for yourself in the future, and look back at what you wrote a year ago: https://multiverseforums.com/thread-16105.html

As an example, here's my message for myself at the end of 2016

Quote:Hello, Ezhik.

Ezhik, Ezhik, Ezhik, Ezhik. So much has happened, hasn't it? I mean, you've been here in the US for over a year! Crazy thought, right? And yet, here you are. It's kinda weird how you are so used to it that you just forget it sometimes, and the moments when you do remember are fun.

Still, what about you? You (well, me) need to work harder. We tell that ourselves year after year, but it just does not seem to really happen, does it? I managed to get quite stressed out over it, and it is seriously something that I hope you will avoid.

At the end of the day, no matter what the past Ezhiks said, no matter what I or you think, you've made it far. Remember, you got into college, made friends you took part in all those hackathons, you won, got featured by a big tech company, worked on projects. Was it as much as you have wanted to? No, it wasn't. But it was quite something nonetheless.

I wonder what you'll be up to in a year? It's such a long time, yet also so very short. What fun adventures did you get into? How are your two big projects coming along? I look forward to seeing your (well, our) progress.

また、あなたの日本語はどうですか?

Love, Ezhik of 12/30/15 6:42 PM GMT-08

Dear pesky plumbers,

The Koopalings and I have taken over the Mushroom Kingdom.
The princess is now a permanent guest at one of my seven Koopa Hotels.
I dare you to find her if you can!


Dear future me,

Think before you act and get up your ass more often, keep working out and don't be afraid to go out of your comfort zone. No regrets lie beyond the fence you try to climb.

Dear Future Terton,


Don't be so lazy with your art this year. DRAW MUCH MORE. DRAW ALL THE THINGS! TRY AND GO FOR A GOOD DRAWING EVERY WEEK, NOT JUST SIMPLE ASK BLOG UPDATES (but don't slack off on them either)! Also, don't be so scared to plug your commission info. You'll never get any more if you don't let people know you're open for them.
And hey, if you're going to more creative this year then you might as well try and build some Bionicle creations. At least one, man, it's been years since you last built anything. Get more sets so you have more new parts to work with if you need to.
And don't be afraid to share your creations online either, you conquered that fear with some of your other creative outlets so you can do it with MOCs, too. You'll only get better with practise and they'll look less shitty eventually.

Also be more active around the forum before people start to think you don't care about them anymore. Seriously, they're some of your only friends. Don't lose them.

Just... don't be so lazy anymore...


Don't disappoint me,
Past Terton

P.S. You better have a new graphics card in your computer, too. I give Future JJ permission to call you a butt if you don't have it by the end of the year.

Dear future Acinonyx.

An interesting year lies ahead doesn't it?
You have the means, you've finished the first step.
Lots of opportunity, don't waste it like you wasted everything else before.

Your past self.

Hi, future Shade

I hope you made something out of this year. I fucked up, got us stuck in this goddamn cycle of monotony and self-doubt, and I've let far too many opportunities slip between my fingers. You're probably still mad at yourself for that, but best case scenario is that it got you off your ass for once. I want you to be able to say "I've seen [insert band here] live!" or maybe even "I've been to [country] this year!" Y'know, fun stuff like that.

And by Baphomet's horns, you better have written at least one complete story by now. Even if it's just a silly joke text or a minimum word count fanfic, just have something out there. It's really not so much to ask, you just need to stop being so fucking terrified of committing to something. It's the first step to realizing the things you currently only fantasize about.

Bottom line: git gud.
Past you

Hey, future me, how's it hanging?

I hope you've had a pretty awesome year this year. Don't be lazy, and finish writing that darn story at some point. Is University going well? I know you'll have a great year to look back on.

How's she doing? You know who I'm talking about, you cheeky rascal. I hope you've been spending a good amount of time together.

And finally, I hope you've started posting here a little more frequently.

Sincerely, past me.

Hey, past me, it's going pretty swell!

I didn't finish that story yet, and university was fun this past year.

I posted a bit, but the site's kinda dead now.

Well, 2016 was an interesting year. Here's hoping that 2017 will be amazing!

Dear 2018 Travis,

Wow, shit got fucked didn't it? At least we have a job now, that's great. Also we're not reading this at the library, it's at Starbucks. That's slightly better. You better keep working hard.

Stay gay.

Love, 2017 you
