I have not graduated from Greenville. Thank you for the reminder, past self.
Actually, I have changed my major (and school) since then. Plus, the Greenville program was not designed for a two-year graduation anyway. A fact I did not know at the time.
Pushing the reasoning to the side, it was cool to receive a message from myself sent two years previous. I remember it now. In 2011, I stumbled across a site (FutureMe.org) that allows people to send emails to be sent at some point in the future. Having just gotten my Bachelor's and expecting to have my Master's in another 2 years, I sent a congratulations to myself.
There is a legitimate reason for me not having accomplished this goal, but maybe I could use this site for future
To be received 15 months from today:

Dear Future Brett,To be received on December 3, 2017:
Many congratulations on being hired into the TESOL program at the University of Maui. With your credentials and talent, there was no reason you should have doubted yourself.
Dear Future Brett,To be received on February 19, 2021:
Wow!!! You were promoted to the head of the linguistic department in less than one semester after being hired. Congratulations on having your skills recognized so quickly.
Dear Future Dr. Minor,To be received on October 8, 2024:
Good luck at the U.N. Cultural Relations division. They knew what they were doing when they hired you. After establishing peace in the Middle East during your Israeli/Pacific Islands language professor exchange, you were the obvious choice.
Dear Future Intergalactic Peace Director Minor,Now that I am sending out these emails to myself, I have no choice but to do two things.
The entire planet owes you their undying gratitude for talking down the alien invaders last month. You really went above and beyond using your language skills to help settle the grievances against them from the Orion Trade Alliance. Being welcomed back into the Alliance, they now have no need for the resources of our planet. The Nobel Peace Prize was well deserved.
- NEVER change my email address.
- Avoid any shame by not accomplishing the goals I am being congratulated for.
