Goeun Park: Older self, you’ll figure things out in time

Email News Alerts

Last summer, I wrote a letter to my younger self.

It was a fun piece to flesh out so I want to do something similar: A letter to myself three years in the future. If letters to the past are meant to dispense belated wisdom, this will hopefully serve as a welcome reminder.


Dear 22-year old Goeun,

I am writing this in the middle of July, 2014. I recently bleached my hair orange and paid a man with more tattoos than bare skin to stab a needle through my upper left ear.
