Hey there! This post was written in 2007, so it may contain information that is no longer accurate or thoughts that no longer reflect how I feel. As human beings, we're constantly learning and bettering ourselves through experiences and interactions with the world and each other.

I keep posts like this around for historical purposes and to prevent link rot, so please keep this in mind as you're reading.

Today I learned that having a unisexual name can increase the hilarity of sending a letter to one's brother who is currently in Marine Corps Boot Camp.

After writing the address in the girliest handwriting possible, I carefully adhered a Disney Cinderella stamp to the envelope and drew a cute little heart on the back just for reassurance.

The result? A letter that's sure to draw attention from the Drill Instructors and confuse my brother thoroughly. I wish I had a way of seeing his face when he gets the letter in a few days. It's the simple things in life.
