Day 11 — A Deceased person you wish you could talk to
I never met you, but I wish I did. I wish I could type this in Vietnamese for you. Daddy’s a strong person. He hides things to make himself seem stronger. I think I get that from him. I asked him this a long time ago, but it continually resonates in my head. I asked him the last time he remembered crying for real. He told me that it was when he had figured out you had died.
Daddy’s stubborn and temperamental. He doesn’t put up with a lot. So really, I am my father’s daughter. But past all of that, I know he cares about me. He’s compassionate but in a way that makes me stronger and tough. He’s not soft about the things he does. He comforts me when I get bad grades or am really upset about something, but he also pushes me and reprimands when I’m not up to standard. When I was rejected from all those colleges and mommy yelled at me and made me feel so shitty, I didn’t want to talk to dad because I thought he was going to make me feel worse. But he comforted me, even though he was disappointed. Same with my GPA, same with everything else. He stresses me out and makes me fear failure the most. But in the end, he really loves me and just wants the best for me.
You must’ve been a good dad, because I have a good dad.

Day 10 — Someone you don’t talk to as much as you’d like to
You know how sometimes, you just see someone a lot or hear about them a lot and you just wish you were best friends with them or were even friends with them. That’s how I feel with you.
I don’t see you often, but when I do, I just wanna talk to you forever. Yeah, I’m kind of creepy. Sorry~
I think one of the saddest things is when two people really get to know each other: their secrets, their fears, their favourite things, what they love, what they hate, literally everything, and then they go back to being strangers. It’s like you have to walk past them and pretend like you never knew them, never even talked to them before, when really, you know everything about them.
