What Would You Write To Your 13 Year Old Self?

Book_Cover_Final_three

Artist and author Allie Brosh wrote letters to younger versions of herself in her new book, including a letter to herself when she was at the bewildering age of thirteen years old.

What would you write in a letter to your younger self? Bosh published Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened this month.

In May, Brosh returned to her popular site for the first time since 2011 with an illustrated essay about depression. She also created a separate book site for her upcoming collection.

 

Here’s an excerpt from Brosh’s letter to her thirteen year old self, written in her signature style:

I think everyone was relieved when you started to grow out of your unhealthy obsession with dogs. Unfortunately, now you think you are a wizard. I know this because I found your collection of spells. Tell me, how does mixing Dijon mustard with sand and then eating it make someone love you?

Full Disclosure: This GalleyCat editor will publish a book with Touchstone, Brosh’s publisher.
