Dear Future Me

A friend and I have been watching the hit TV series Heroes recently, where ordinary men and women possess extraordinary powers. One day we theorized what sort of powers we would like to have in case something in our DNAs get "messed" up and get evolutionized a gazillion notches up the chain.

So what will it be? Invisibility, memory recall, flying?

"It would be great to have Petrelli's power. He merely touches the others and he can already imitate their power." My friend said.

Hmmm... good point. Right now, the only real power I have is walking fast (friends usually call out to me and ask what's the hurry... it's just that we walk everywhere in Baguio that it's second nature. And then there's also my power to have migraines.

"Oh wait... Hiro's power is cool too. The power to bend time and space."

Oh yes. Wouldn't it be great to go back in time and correct your mistakes? Or go forward in time to see how you and the world would fare? I wonder how you would count your age then, with your present getting mixed with the past and future? Hmmm...

Well, here's a way to travel and catch up with your old self in the future. Best part is, you don't need to have such power!

FutureMe.org enables you to write a message to yourself and send it to a date of your choice in the future. What an excellent idea! Why haven't I thought of this myself!?

Uncle BatJay introduced this site to the blogkadahan members. It was such an interesting topic that it's currently the thread in the blogkadahan blog. My present self is planning to write my future self as well. It's a great idea in keeping track of where you were and where you will be when you receive the letter in the future.

I can just imagine my surprise when I read an e-mail from my past self (I would feign surprise hehehe). Delighted? Or Saddened? Depends on what I would have done with my life between the creation and submission of the letter.

What about you? Interested to write to your future self? Then head on to FutureMe.org today. It's free!

Happy weekend everyone!

  1. Cool! Watson has discovered Heroes! :)

    Great show huh?

    I'd love to have Nathan Petrelli's power... flight. Only because it would be sooo fun to do it! and imagine the economical effects... No more money wasted on gasoline! hehehe... And less gasoline consumption = a cleaner environment + less international conflicts because of oil.

    I am so checking out the future me web site. Thanks for the info!

  2. i've been hearing so much about heroes and how good and cool the series is. i'll look for it in my next dvd hunting weekend. :)

    I'll wait for Futureme.org to assess your future, then I'll give myself a try. However, I want Invinsibility. Would be great to witness how these politicians steal millions and how they hide them then turn around and say they're broke!!! Sana nakikinig ang panginoon, hehe....goodhealth.


  4. I tried futureme.org last year thru StumbleUpon. I sent one to my gf and one to myself scheduled to arrive next month, I waited and nothing arrived.
    As for Heroes, I can't wait for it to resume after a long season break, so on monday, a new episode will be available... finally! If I had to choose, I'd want Peter's power... but right now, I'd give up all the powers the cast has just to have Strom's mutant power to control the weather. It's freakin' hot.

    hmm... sige nga... i supposed i would have to provide an email address - so i have to keep that email address active for 10 years or so (patay ako dyan, i have lots of dormant email adds.)

    peter petrelli may die sa dami ng powers niya, isnt he going to be the exploding man :) i want him to die -- parang ang boring ng series if ever. got a villain - get petrelli to fight him. for now na lang, apparently only petrelli can fight sylar.

    hehe, napa-analyze ako, pasensiya ka na. cant wait for heroes season 2 na kasi.

  6. oi, nanoood din ako nyan. ako kung magkakaroon man ako powers gusto ko yung makontrol yung nature mala captain planet baga. ang init kasi sobra dito sa maynila. pauulanin ko ng yelo. wehehe

  7. I'd like the power to go back in time so that I could fix the "now" by repairing the past.

    si hiro nakamura ang pinakagusto ko sa mga character ng heroes, sigruo kasi may pagkakumedyante siya, at napaka inosenteng tignan sa kilos, gawa at salita.

    oks yung concept na susulatan mo sarili mo. masubukan nga.


    Alternati: I can't wait for April 23! Tama ba? hehehe. I usually get dreams about flying. Sana magkatotoo. Wishing!

    Zherwin: It's really a great series!

    TruBlue: Hahaha maganda yan. Play their game. They make funds disappear din, diba?

    2ngaw: Ngayon na pala yung April 23! Yehey! Pa-warning muna na bili ako ng ski jacket bago mo change weather ha. heheh. Talaga hindi nag-work? masubukan nga na ang delivery ay 1 week from now muna.

    Cess: It's so nice to have people to relate to about the series. Ang galing nung nakaisip nito.

    Airwind: Bago kayo mag-connive ni 2ngaw, abisuhan nyo ako pag bibili na ako ng winter jacket ha. hehe

    Phil: That would be Hiro's power then!

    Iskoo: Ako rin, susubukan ko palang.
