I'm Brett Campbell, nice to write this informal letter for you. I am a 20 year old college student who has lived a relatively decent life. I am Eagle Scout and i've had the privledge of going on some incredible trips during my Boy Scout career. My family isn't rich, but we aren't poor either, i'd rank us somewhere in the middle-class region if i had to. Like everyone else, I have had my fair share of struggles, undoubtebly not as bad as some people's struggles, but struggles that were and still are very real to me nontheless. I could sit here and talk about how my life is this or that but it would get me nowhere. With the help of my wallet and my family i funded a trip to Japan for myself with my two friends who live there in 2012, and ever since the day i left I wanted to go right back. The way the Japanese people live their lives is strangely beautiful. I met a girl there who lit a fire in my heart and to this day I would think about her. I would remember her physically so much as emotionally, she was beautiful in every way inside and out. A girl with a mindset and way of carrying herself that I have yet to experience again. Well after four years of crushing on her she came to my town (she's here right now actually ;) ). We've been seeing each other everyday and I was more than happy to do everything i could within my power just to see her smile. Everytime I see her I get so nervous that I act like a complete moron just because i can't help but go crazy. I can barely handle the combination of her beauty and personality, it just seems so unreal. I think the best part is that she actually likes me too despite me being an idiot half the time. Anyways sorry i'm just rambling now, my ADD doesn't exactly like to work with me when it comes to writing a narrative or an essay :). Long story short i'm trying to raise money for a flight to Japan for the winter for a two week trip. My long term goal is to eventually move there and at least spend a portion of my life in Japan, specifically Yokahama where I was when I originally went there. I want to be able to see that girl smile again even after she leaves my town in the coming month. I think that by going to Japan again, the fire that i felt in my heart will come back and i'll finally have the motivation to pursue my dreams and change the world. I want everyone to be as happy as her, and most importantly i want to be able to bring myself to that point. I'm not expecting this essay to really accomplish much but I figured I might as well let this all off my chest. To anyone who decides to support me I genuinely appreciate it. If I receive no help at all I like to believe even now i'm motivated enough to accomplish this goal myself. Thankyou if you read this poorly constructed essay all the way to the very end, maybe you're just as weird as I am if you made it this far lol.
