A Note From Rachel

A few weeks ago, I rediscovered a box of notes from my junior high and high school days. Even though I don't have any of the notes I wrote, I still consider these folded sheets of paper an important part of my personal history. They remind me of the dramas I survived, the concerns I carried, and the friends who supported me. For this page, I retyped a few of the most uplifting notes from my dear friend Lauren, who I met in seventh grade and still consider one of my closest friends (almost 15 years later). Typically, I wouldn't choose a handwriting font for such a type-heavy layout, but this font reminded me of Lauren and helped to preserve the intimacy of the original notes.
