I am like many people in the world that spend the majority of their time working, working, and working some more. It seems as though at times that the grind of deadlines and task and goals that need to be met is endless. There is never anytime to relax during the week and the weekends are always filled with other commitments.

Ive realized that the rigor of daily life for a hardworking person makes them far more appreciative of vacation time.

I have spent the past few days in Spain and cannot express in words the feeling of a true vacation. Being able to go out and enjoy life with friends is what makes working hard the rest of the year worth it.

I only get my haircut once a year, but being that I got it cut today, j started thinking about how telling it can be about our personalities. Basically, your hair says a lot about you.

It shows wether you care about your appearance or not, if you lazy, if you're fashionable, how often you shower, if you're a risk taker, if you're conservative, or even if you care about/have hair at all.

An interesting that I realized today when I was sitting in the swivel chair getting mine cut was that no one has identical hair; it might be a different style, length, or color.  

Thinking about all of this has ironically made me care more about my hair because I want it to accurately represent who I am a...

Living in the New England, I am used to having brutal winters with countless snowstorms and a bitter wind that feels as though it is cutting your skin.

It is nice this year that it has only snowed a couple of times this year. It doesn't feel like the typical winter and ironically, I am starting to miss it. Even though the cold and harsh weather is what made the winter feel like it would never end, it is also what made the winter in New England special and unique to the rest of the year.

It is safe to say that I am hoping for a few more blizzards!

Christmas is all about being with those you love. Even though we all live busy lives,  the holidays are the perfect find time to spend with your friends and family.

I've learned and realized that Christmas makes people happier, more loving, and more forgiving. There is something about the spirit of Christmas that makes every aspect of life that much better.

The closer it gets to the 24th, the more excited I become.

I truly want to wish a happy holidays to everyone. Merry Christmas!

Being in my senior year of high school I am just starting to feel nostalgic about moving onto to the next stage of my past and leaving high school behind.

Today is the first away game of the basketball season and I am going to try and enjoy every single one.

Hopefully our team can have a great season by winning a lot of games, while also making great "final" memories along the way!

Dear Blake,

Today marks your last home game as an Avon old Farms soccer player. For the last three years I have watched you grow and emerge as such a fine young man that it makes my heart swell with pride.

You are such a source of joy and happiness in my life that I will remember this day for as long as I live. And one day if I am lucky I will get to see your children play on the very same field. I love you and I will always remember you as the soccer player that I never was.

This was a day to remember and I thank you for being the young man that you are.

Love,

Blake,

The best thing about playing in the NBA is that I get to live out my dream and the hardest thing is the constant wear on my body. Im very competitive and I hate to lose so that is what always drives me especially when I start to feel tired. Thanks for the letter,

Dear Blake,

Well 18 years ago tonight you entered the world and changed our lives.

You were the most beautiful little baby I have ever seen and all of my world changed and seeing you for the very first time.

You have grown into a fine young man and an example of all that is good as the combination of your mom and I. You have a noble heart and much will be expected of you in the years ahead.  Why?  Because the world needs people like you.

Keep making us proud and know that you can talk to us about anything now and for the rest of your life. Congratulations Blake on becoming an 18-year-old man that is worthy of admiration and love.

love you,

Dear Blake:

¡Hoy es tu día! espero que disfrutes mucho tu "sweet 18", porque en España es una edad muy especial en la que pasas a ser adulto jeje... El verano que viene podremos echar ya unas carrerillas con el kids car y el Yaris :)

Que decir! Eres un amigo genial con el que no me canso de estar, la prueba es este verano en el que he estado viendo tu cara de yankee todos los días durante 2 meses. Gracias por haber venido con nosotros al interraíl, una experiencia increíble que sin duda no habría sido lo mismo sin ti. Ahora eres un miembro más del "típical Espanish crew". The moments we lived were priceless!!

Greetings from España.

For many people (myself included), the feeling of summer coming to an end is beginning to set in. The long days at the beach, the late nights with friends, the family barbecues, and the privilege of sleeping all day, will soon all be gone. The daily grind of school and work will take its place; however it isn't as bad as it first may appear.
I frankly can't wait for sports to start. My senior year and final soccer season are fast approaching and I've never been more excited to get on the field with my teammates. Seeing all of my friends after a long summer always provides for hilarious and interesting stories as well.
It's fair to say I always have mixed feelings ab...

I am lucky enough to have great friends. A true friend is one of the few true privileges in life that I hope all of you have experienced.

I have friends from when I used to live in Spain and they planned a trip through Europe. The trip would start in Madrid, we would fly to Amsterdam, take trains to Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Venice, Florence, Rome, Barcelona, and then back to Madrid. In would be about 3 weeks and undoubtedly be a trip of a lifetime. They were nice enough to invite me to come along with them and share the unique experience. Clearly I said yes and had all the anticipation in the world.

Currently we are in Prague and having a great time. It is such a mysterious and interesting...

Dear Blake,

I am very enthused by this app, and I think it's going to become an important part of my life.

I am curious as to what role you have played in this process. I am very impressed regarding your technological skills in terms of helping develop the product.

What do you think is in store for you in the future? Whatever it may be, it seems that a background in economics as well as government will be helpful to you.

In your pursuits, I encourage you to think about improving access to technology to marginalized peoples. It seems to me that technology and communication, if used in the right way, will help us overcome injustice throughout the world.

I look forward to speaking with yo...

Dear Family,

I want to thank you for sticking with me on this journey of lettrs.  You may not realize it but most startups fail and although that still remains a possibility I want you to know that we have already succeeded in an idea that is refreshing and necessary in the world.

When I come to New York City I feel the longing to be home with all of you.

And so what I am saying is I guess we are kind of close to the end, to discover what the world thinks of lettrs, either by growth in the company or by an acceptance that perhaps words are not as magical as they used to be.

Independent of the outcome I want you to know how much I love you and hope that if nothing else you will keep the l...

Dear Blake,

How is California? I am sure you are having a blast.

I heard you guys got upgraded to a Mercedes. That is no fair haha!
Mom wants to know if it's a car that you think she would like.

Is the hotel nice? Or did Dad book one like the embassy suites in Miami we were planning on staying in haha. Although with the car you have, who cares about the hotel.

Have a good rest of the trip and think of me when I'm in school, ugh.

Miss you guys,
Ana

Blake,  
My name is Jocelyn, I am 17 and a junior in high school. I am from the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania area. I read your letter to you father and have to say I'm very moved. the way you look at your father as such an impacting figure in your life is truly special. Throughout my early childhood and preschool years my parents always seemed a little drawn apart. When I was in kindergarten, my parents had divorced. My older brother is about the closest I have to a father. I think it is great that you and your father have such a close relationship and that is definitely something you should cherish everyday.

Hellopie!

This is Vijay.

And I'm glad we are pen pals in this beautiful application. Lettrs.

How are you?
Hope you are doing well.

I'm 17. How old are you? What are you pursuing?

I take interest in reading those writings in which the thoughts are provoked and can inspire us to do something. I also like writings regarding nature and inner feelings and emotions. This is about me and my interests.

When free, write to me about yourself, your interests.

Thanks,
#VC

Hey Blake,

Good to hear from you! The Bahamas, nice I was there two days after Christmas. I went on a cruise to Mexico and the Bahamas, and it was nice and warm. Just the vacation I needed after my last few months.

I am not looking forward to going back to school, as I sure you weren't either. I have been since November 19th and I still don't know when I am going back.

I'm recovering well from my accident, I got a 73 degree bend out of my knee today. Good but not good enough. I walk with crutches now, which is better than either a walker or wheelchair.

How was your trip to the Bahamas, warm I'm guessing? How was the first day back too school?

Write soon!

Your Friend,

Can't wait to see you when you get home!

I wanted to share my love for the new sms delivery feature. I can now send letters to my friends and pen pals much easier now. I have been able to get many more of my friends on lettrs that previously were not.

I do not use whatsapp as often as sms but it is very handy when sending lettrs to my international friends and family who use it.

It seems like every day there is a great new feature added to the app.

Delivering a message is all about form and content. These two things are so important that having one without the other can result in failure to get your message across.

The first part about form is deciding how and through what method you are going to share your thoughts, ideas, questions, or propositions. Today there are so many different means to which you can accomplish this, it makes it easy to choose the wrong one. If you need to say something meaningful -something that matters- the form is critical. The content of the message is equally important. It can be deep, thought provoking, intelligent, witty, and heartfelt, but if you choose the wrong form your audience will never comprehend ...

Last night I saw the new movie American Sniper and my mind was blown. What a great movie about an American soldier putting his country and his fellow citizens/soldiers before himself. It was an incredible way to honor his life and as the best navy seal sniper in American history, but a representation of the struggles all soldiers face on and off the battle field.

After the movie the audience had tears in their eyes and felt hundreds of emotions all at once; the strongest for me being pride.

I would be so disappointed if this film did not win every single award available to win. It was that good....

Everyone should go watch it!
