ohhh this is good.

Flashback about 1 month ago. I get a text from Chelsey asking me if I had received my letter from my 9th grade self. I told her I hadn't, and she proceeded to tell me some of the highlights from what hers had said. Funny stuff. I figured mine was probably lost in the mail somewhere due to the fact that my parents had moved, and forgot about it. Well, last week Miss Hill, now Mrs Houghton, found me on FB asking for my address, and today I received this little gem in the mail.

Flashback January 6, 2000
*DISCLAIMER: I realize that what you're about to read is completely ridiculous, however, I found it so dang funny that I felt like I had to share. Don't you worry. I didn't change a WORD. So, don't you dare judge goes ;)

"Right now I am in 9th Grade at Oak Canyon Jr. High School, and I am the secretary on the student council. I take dance at the dance club, and I am on Superstars. I am also doing a trip with Christina Halls and Tiffany Christensen. Synda Schultz is our teacher. I have 3 brothers. Jason who is married to Tamra (no kids yet), Tyler who is married to Nancy (no kids yet), and Set who died in a car accident a few years ago. I also have two sisters. Nichole is married to Denny Barney (They have 2 kids, Kiley (4) and Blake (2). Then there is Lindsey. She isn't married (Yet!!) She goes to UVSC, and lives at home.
People in the world are just starting to get over the whole Y2k hype. It was really a lot of talk for nothing. There wasn't any problems. Bill Clinton is the pres. of the USA, and Gordon B. Hinkley is the president of the Church. Technology is getting better! DVD players are getting more popular, and computers are getting better and better everyday.
Right now in the music business the Backstreet Boys are the biggest pop group in the world. They are for sure my favorite group, alright alright...I have a small obsession over them, but what can I say I just love them. Two of my walls are covered in pictures of them and I could tell you every one of their, full names, ages, favorite colors, food, you know, all of the good stuff. I went to their concert 3 times in one month last October. Someday I will meet them!
I have lots of plans for my future. I have two plans for what I am going to do when I grow up. I am going to graduate from College, or high school with one year of hair school done. Then I want to move to california and do famous people's hair. Then you know, I could have the hook ups and marry a famous person. No really though, I love to do people's hair. I am already like the family hair stylist.
I would also either like to dance or sing professionally. I love to do both. I would really just like to be a part of MTV. I want to et married int he LDS temple to someone who loves kids and me. I want to marry someone athletic, and that will be able to provide for me, and my kids needs. I want to be a good mother, and i also want to keep in touch with my friends forever!
I have like a group of seven close friends right now. Chelsey Ashman, Liz Olson, Jessica Rogers, Jaclyn Dodson, Jade Silva, Cassie Montgomery. We have a lot of fun together. We have so many inside jokes with each other. I never stop laughing. Well I guess when you read this you will know what a dork I was in 9th grade, but hey, I love it! BSB forever!

There is is. In it's unadulterated form. Horrible sentence structure and all. I'm going to have to say my favorite line is "I would really just like to be a part of MTV." What can I say folks? I had had some big aspirations for myself. Not everyone dreams of being a hairstylist to the stars...

Jeff and Chelsey said...

Serioulsy that is better than mine! I had no idea, even as one of your 7 closest friends whom you have a lot of inside jokes with, that you just wanted to be apart of MTV. And Y2K was just a bunch of hype!

Trav and Linds said...

Baaaahaaahaaa!!!! I am laughing so hard reading this! How all these aspirations didn't pan out I'm not sure, but I love it!

The Smith Clan said...

Why did I not know about this amazing letter to self!! Hilarious Megan! Come on... there is still time in your busy life to be that hairstylist and do famous people's hair!

Liz & Zac said...

Okay, Laughing my head off right now. Mine is like 3 tiny paragraphs. Yours is awesome! I remember when you wanted to go to hair school! (Don't worry, apparently I wanted to be a psychiatrist) I feel honored to be one of your closest 7 friends. Oh how I LOVED 9th grade!

Nichole said...

How funny! I love the part about you wanting to marry someone famous and be apart of MTV yet get married in the temple. So fun to remember how a teenage mind works and read what you were like at that point.

Roxy said...

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Everyone should know that her obsession with BSB hasn't diminished even a little bit. We watched two hours of original BSB music videos the other night. True story.

Jessica and Reecey said...

I love this post so much! I am still laughing! So many memories. Didn't you and I have crushes on Nick? Sick.

Janae and Bil Bil said...

That made my day!! Meg you still have time to be on MTV... don't let that dream die:) Oh the Backstreet Boys!

rosemarie said...
