Dear Society,

Dear society, it’s been two years since I last wrote to you.

Wow, time flies, hasn’t it?

Well, a little life update, I am 22 years old now.

I am a senior in college, waiting to hear back from a grad school.

I still feel somewhat the same way as I did two years ago about you.

You’re definitely still very confusing about whether you like me or not.

but well, I am happy to say that I am here very much alive writing to you still.

I think I am a lot better than the last time I wrote to you.

I have grown quite a bit and I guess thanks to you.

you have put me through hell and heaven over the past two years for sure.

There was a time that I really did not think that I would make it to my birthday.

Shocker. I made it.

I think I realized that you are trying too.

trying to be better, just like I am.

and failing many times, just like I am.

I guess I have grown to accept that you’re not perfect either.

In fact, nothing in this world is perfect.

but I know one thing that I didn't know two years ago.

It’s that not being perfect is not necessarily a bad thing.

Sometimes imperfection is beautiful.

Most of the time it teaches you a lesson.

So I think I’m not scared of you anymore. probably. maybe. Um I think.

I change my mind often. So for now this is where I stand.

I still don’t think I love you but hey, we’re not enemies, right?

I’d like to say, I’ve grown to like you more.

I am and will be trying everyday.

So you do that too.

Dear society,

Thank you so much for the past two years.

I wouldn't have it any other way, friend.

Lots of love,

your friend Miyabi
