Suddenly you know why you're there

This article was originally posted as a “Dear Me” blog on The site’s “Dear Me” series asks bloggers to write a letter to themselves at a specific moment in their life, past or future. It’s a creative way to share what they’ve learned with the rest of us. 

Dear Daniel,

You’re lying on the damp grass in the backyard of an abandoned house. It’s late summer, and the humidity of the air is still palpable even though it’s past sunset. Mosquitoes swarm around you, making you even more uncomfortable. The voices of your friends and classmates meander out the broken window across the yard over to your secluded spot in the dark. They’re on their fifth game of beer pong and show no signs of slowing down. Less than two hours ago you thought that you and some friends were going to see a movie. How did you end up here? And more important: What’s the point?
