Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.

you’re going to get beat today.

Dear 13 Year Old Ingrid,

Today is a special day. You are going to get your ass kicked in the middle of school for the very first time.  I suggest you skip school today because even now, I’m not sure what we learned from that experience. So… turn around, do not get on that bus (public transportation fools!) Tell Mum that  you’ve got the sniffles. After all, it’s the middle of February in Canada. Life doesn’t get more miserable. You don’t necessarily need to get beat.

Oh? You’re going to school, are you? Tupac just died and you want to be with your friends? Okay. Fair enough, Tupac was great.  Just please, please put your stuff in the locker and go to class. Stop mingling with other students. You’re here to learn, not socialize! You’ll never be friends with any of these people after like… next year. So, try harder in math or something.

And this is where it all goes wrong. At first you were mingling in the hallways and now you are talking to a girl named Chantalle who more or less runs the hallways.  You want to be cool, so you act tough. You say hello to her. NOW GO TO CLASS. Oh, but you aren’t going to do that are you? No. You’re going to engage in a sort of half nudging, half pushing fight with Chantalle. You’re going to say “Wud up, Chantalle?” and give her a nudge and then she’ll say “Wud up, Ingrid?” and give you a nudge and before you know it,  you’ll be  up against a locker, getting strangled by this b*tch.  A crowd will form and NO ONE WILL HELP YOU! That part will be traumatizing, but just that part really.

Who knows who instigated the fight?  I wouldn’t really say you got “bullied”, per se.  I do know you didn’t stop yourself from pushing back when your “hello”s got a little heated. Pushing back is okay, except when you think you might get strangled. Aha! There’s the lesson, Ingrid. Finally. After all these years, we’ve figured it out! This is a lesson in brevity.  Okay, fine. Go to school! I take it all back.  This fight will inform that rest of your life.

If you decide to engage in the “wud up fight” with Chantalle, you will learn that most people don’t intervene when two people fight because… well, who knows? You will discover that the little s**t named Geoffrey will be the only stand up guy in your school because he will break it up.  And you’ll learn that you’re not as tough as you think you are. Fighting is never okay. Even if you think you’re stronger than the other guy.

You’re going to get strangled today. But it’ll be okay because you’ll learn when to stop yourself before it’s too late (too late meaning getting your ass whooped in the middle of school, not death).  YES!!!

13-year-old Ingrid? I think you’ve just taught ol’ me something. I salute you!

Love,

Your Future Self
