Going Back to School

After two years out of high school and being nearly bored to death despite working part time, I've decided to pursue my dream of a history major. Starting Wednesday I will be going to school full-time, but I am only taking 12 credits to start out. I will also still be working part time with hours that I already have (Monday & Friday 4-8 and Thursday & Saturday 4-8).Now here's the kicker. I got suckered into helping a local girl scout troop go camping and go on trips. I must be crazy or just really tired of doing nothing most of the day. No worries though to those who correspond with me! I'll absolutely will still be writing letters but on a much slower pace that what I've previously been doing (it was pretty much you send me a letter and the next day I had a reply in the mail). At first I was disappointed that I may not be able to keep up with my current pace but then again...the lengthy time  will make for more interesting and longer letters. See, everyone wins!

Old Ways

I'm a big fan of swap bot and recently I've partaken in a self mailing letter swap in which you do not use an envelope but fold the letter up.
Here's the problem. Even if it's an introduction letter I still like to write at least two pages. I could use two sheets and fold them together but it would  be bulky and unattractive. Instead, I did a little research and found that some people use to write on top of their writing because the recipient paid for the weight of the mail. Here's my attempt.
Hopefully, the recipient will be able to read it.
