Dear Past Adam,
This is Future Adam. I know, it’s weird and you won’t believe me. But I am you in 16 years time. Stay with me, I’ve got something to say that will help you.
You just turned 16. You’re in Year 11 and you’re about to have a huge year at school. You will win the lead role in the high school musical Little Shop of Horrors. You’ll date your female love interest for two days and realise it was never going to work. You’ll achieve academic success in subjects like English and Modern History. Maths will even get better (but you’ll never love numbers like you love words, obviously).
You'll be dancing in your bedroom to Kylie's Love at First Sight. You'll be secretly recording Queer As Folk on VHS when it plays at 10pm on SBS on Monday nights. You'll be keeping a lot of secrets from a lot of people. Mostly yourself.
