Hi! 👋 I’m Jessa.

I blog daily about life, work, and the future.

Letter No. 1

Written in


Dear reader from the future,

I hope you are well today. I can only imagine where you are reading this from, but it may not be what I think where you would be. Mainly because my mind is limited to the images I conjure from my memories. If only I can know where you are reading this from. Maybe from a machine, I will never know anything like the computer I used to type this letter with.

Ah, a letter. Do you still write those with a pen and paper? In my time, we barely do so. We type letters through our computers or mobile phones and send them via the internet. Actually, we call them emails, short for electronic mail.

But I do not want to discuss more letter writing or what an email is. What I want to share with you is why I am compelled to write this letter.

I acknowledge how short my life is, and at the same time, how the internet enables me to do things I won’t be able to do without it. And that includes writing a letter that I hope will last through the ages. I also want to put into writing the things I had experienced in my time so that as you read my letters from the future, you will know what life was before you knew it.

I am just an ordinary person with a story to tell. Still, I think that you need an account like this in the middle of the mainstream media. Indeed, nothing is new, but maybe things are quite different from the way they are now.

How will you know if I am telling the truth?

Well, for one, I can say I am telling my version of the truth, but the truth nonetheless. But if people from the future can now alter the past, making what is untrue become true, then there’s no way of telling otherwise.

I will be writing more letters to you in the days to come.

For now, I hope all the best for you.

Your letter writer from the past,
