Dear Santa,

(rad vintage postcard)
I know it's kind of last minute, but I was thinking about "the perfect gift" you could bring me for Christmas. Writing these kinds of letters was easier when all I wanted was my very own copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Now I want other, more complicated things.
  • Could you do my law school applications?
  • Could you unpack all my college stuff and then repack the right stuff into a suitcase?
  • Could you give a few key people weekend flights to DC? Beginning with a California-DC flight for New Years?
  • Could you make my morning insecurities go away?
  • Could you bring me the way Christmas Eve used to feel? Magical. Restless. Innocent.
I supposed in the absence of all that, I would really love a pair of fancy shoes.

Thanks for everything,


  1. i loved seeing you today. I hope you get just what you asked for :)

  2. This is a fantastic letter.... it makes me think I should revise mine to include: take the GRE for me...


I try to respond to comments if I have your email :)
