Don't Abandon The Art Of Writing Letters

"Give me a handwritten letter and I will treasure it forever."

Don't Abandon The Art Of Writing Letters

Although the era of letters and mail has long past replaced by mobile phones and texting, nothing can top a handwritten letter and the happiness it always brings along. Receiving a letter is like a little burst of magic. Imagine the delightful smile threatening to come out when you recognize the handwriting and know who it is, even before searching for the sender's name. Imagine holding it close to you and searching for the smell of the person who sent it. And imagine each word holding so much meaning for you as they communicate the little parcels of the story. This is the feeling that will teach you that love can get you through the toughest of times, and sometimes all you need to be reminded of that love is a simple handwritten note.

I always love things that are written down by someone for me. It's so beautiful to see and it makes me extremely happy. No matter how messy the handwriting is, it is always better than any letter that someone buys from a shop which is already printed. People love words and receiving heartfelt words from someone who has taken some time out from their life and written it down is just another feeling of joy.

I remember when I was little, me and my friends used to write letters to each other on our birthdays. And still today, I've kept them folded in the little jewelry box that I have in my drawer. Though over these years, they are torn out after opening and folding for so many times, reading them now and absorbing every bit of the hidden feeling always brings that distant memory back.

Hence, from today try writing a letter or even a simple note occasionally to your parents, friends, roommate or even your teacher so that they can smile as they brush their finger across that little piece of paper.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
