Hello Mimi!

Dad said you were still trying to figure out how to send me emails but you are able to read my emails, so that’s good 🙂 Don’t worry too much about sending me emails. Please send me one when you can 😀 but don’t stress too much over it. It’s alright, I know you love me!!

I miss you very much. I miss California especially. Things are cold and dreary here in Washington, D.C. The people are not so nice sometimes. They seem to prefer to take advantage of a person than to first become friends with that person. I have to be constantly on my toes here or I sink and drown. I’m feeling emotionally vulnerable.

I’m not really sure what I want to do with my life at all. The world seems so cold, dark, and scary. There’s danger around every corner. Sometimes I can’t see god any where, but I know God’s always there. It’s not always easy to carry faith, though. Especially when the world keeps on kicking a person down every day.

I don’t know what kind of a job I’d like to do after I graduate. I really don’t know. The only thing I know that I love to do is practice the electric bass guitar. Maybe if I work really, really hard at it, someday I can make a living from practicing bass guitar. I wouldn’t count on it, though. That’s why I’m motivated to get my math degree, so I can fall back on it if I need to.

Right now, I’m just happy I can have access to food, dry shelter, and a comfortable bed. I’m also happy I have family like you–people who care about me deeply. More than just trying to make me into someone I’m not, I’ve always felt that you’ve let me find out who I am inside.

Thank you for being a wonderful, amazing grandmother. I love you very deeply and I thank God for you. I hope you are doing well. With much love,

Your Grandson
