On the Friday before the holidays, December 20th, 2013, Mrs.Pruett told us about FutureMe. It’s a website where you can write an email to your future self. If you tap on the bar on the left that says “Write”, you will be able to write your email. Just fill in your email, type the email, set the date, prove you’re human, and you’re all set! You’ll get the email on the date you set it to. FutureMe is good for reminders in a few days or what you want to tell yourself in a few years. You can read anonymous emails other people wrote by tapping on the bar that says “Read”. You will find recent emails and old emails. If you want to find out more about FutureMe, you can tap on the bar that says “What?” That will take you to a page where you can read about FutureMe, how it started, and what you can do if there are problems with sending or receiving emails. The “What?” page is actually funny and unusual compared to other websites’ information pages.
On the day before Winter Vacation we used FutureMe to write letters to ourselves. We wanted to remind ourselves what we were like back in 7th grade. Someday, whenever we get our letters, we’ll be like “Oh look, I was like this in 7the grade! I was little and crazy!” We wrote the letters so we could look back on ourselves and tell the FutureMes what to do. We wrote the letters to 2019, the year we’d graduate, or to June 2014 when school would be out. Wouldn’t it be cool to hear what your PastMe is telling you to do?
