Dear ____ ,
My therapist told me to start writing these letters. I don't understand the point of them, when I'm never going to put a stamp on them or write an address on them and send them off. And you're never going to read this, anyways.
My life's just changed. And it's not because I've figured out that I'm gay. It's not even because my parents divorced and my Dad moved out. It's not because Sara got accepted into Uni.
Tomorrow, I might never come back home. And even if my mission partner is the hottest guy in the world, I might not come back home.
I don't want to die.
I think my goldfish is judging me as I write this. He's always judging me.
