Just as I’m packing my bags for a business trip in Asia (and a sidetrip to my dear Manila), I receive this letter. I know I want to say something but that will have to wait until I’m safely landed in the Pearl of the Orient. For now, dear Eli, I’d say talk to a friend in person. That would greatly help. And to you dear MGG readers, read on and share your thoughts with our co-MGG reader Eli.
I’m writing you because I just need some clarity on my situation. I am just so hopelessly confused and depressed right now, I’d appreciate if you could offer some insights to my situation. I’m writing as a hopelessly repressed 21-year-old student, eldest in the family. I’d like to say I’m hot, but I’ve gained some weight faster than I could lose some, so yea, I probably need some improvement. Here is my story. I would appreciate if you did not publish my name. Thanks.
