Letter to My College Self

Dear Young Dorrie,

This is going to be a short and sweet letter.  Your life is perfect and it is all because of you.  All of those questionable decisions you made- it turns out better than you could imagine.     You’re getting ready to go to school in Tennessee. You’re going to meet your best friends there. You’re going to decide to stay.  

You’re going to date a couple of boys and you’re going to be heartbroken over one. The other- you’re going to dump and not feel bad about it. But not before a couple years of nonsense. You were right to deal with it for as long as you did. All these little things will add up to you graduating college, meeting your future husband, and moving to Florida.   

Tennessee will be where you grew up- yes you were raised in Maine but it won’t be until you leave that you come into your own.  Have fun with your friends- stay up late and miss a couple of classes. Drink too much and run to Waffle House at 3 am. 

Really, like I said before. You did well. Don’t doubt yourself. You will have the opportunity to meet some of the best people the south has to offer.  Live it up. The worst that will happen is that you’ll have a Northern accent with a little bit of Southern twang. It’s the best of both worlds.    Cheers!   Your older, wiser, self.
