Hello Cassia, (and Jack)
Thanks for choosing me to be your Pen pal, Congrats on the recent Marriage and the pregnancy. I read your profile so many times that I feel like we’ve already met. I am still shocked that anyone would intentionally choose me to write to.
Your have a lot going on in your life, I feel like you maybe a little disappointed in my letters and probably not too impressed with my spelling and grammar (I didn’t finish school you see and home schooling wasn’t an option) You being a professional writer kind of has me wondering whether I was the best choice for you. You on the other hand are exactly what I was hoping for in a pen pal. you can regale me with stories of your interesting life and experiences and I can live the life of adventure indirectly.
I don’t really know what a family legacy entails but it sounds like it’s hard work having to revitalise a whole area with not much money. What do you do for food? Do you grow your own vegetables. I get you don’t eat fish I’m not a fan myself just one whiff of mum’s pan fried tilapia makes me heave, And she makes it often as her customers love it apparently (she’s a caterer for parties and weddings when not washing dishes at the local restaurant) I myself love grilled cheese sandwiches.
Sleeping in a tent sounds like it could be a lot of fun, well once in a while. I didn’t think they made them big enough for 6 people to live in, The ones I’ve seen have been really small and I value my privacy and the safety of my 4 walls too much I don’t think I would have coped.
Your idea about the bullies made me chuckle out loud (well it was more of a snort!) My mum came running she thought I was choking as she hadn’t heard me make that sound before, scared the life out of her. It shocked me a little as well to be honest.
Cassie will be proud our sessions are usually her talking and me counting down the hour till she leaves. Sounds awful now I see it on paper, But it is one of the things were working on.
I haven’t seen a storm nor a bear come to think of it. Maybe I should add them to My list of things to do and experience. Cassie she’s my therapist asked me to write a list of things I wanted to achieve and thanks to you I think I’ll be crossing number 1 off. ( 1. Make a friend)
I’m happy that you chose me and hope we can continue writing and getting to know each other.
Your New Friend,
