Dear July

One of my favorite series on YouTube is called “Letters to July” by Emily Diana Ruth. They are short video diaries that are only uploaded in July, and are written to the month. I enjoy Emily’s self-reflection, and liked when she invited guests to make their own video letters for her channel last year.

I decided to make my own. July is my least favorite month, so I was always curious about why she would choose this month to write to. I forget that the world doesn’t have to endure the intolerable heat Houstonians feel in July. I prefer October or February, but maybe writing to something that you have a difficult relationship with can be a better reflection of your personality.

Be sure to check out Emily’s series and her other videos, which are equally inspiring, here.
