Letter: Holden to Phoebe

Omar Sharif '25


Dear Phoebe,


Hey, how's your day going? My day has been the same, old, boring day. I am writing to you since the psychoanalyst guy says I should talk to other people and write letters to my family telling them how I am doing. I am not really sure what to write about, though. I don't really like this place, I kinda want to leave, I might just do it. I won't actually, I know you would get mad at me if I don't, so for the time being, I will stay. This guy also wants me to talk to him about Allie, but I don't want to. I thought I saw him the other day, in New York City, while I was crossing the street, but I know it wasn't him, just I was hoping it was. I think about him a lot, you know, I don't want to think about him, but he just comes into my mind. Anyways how's school, how are your plays? I have a question for you, why do you try in school? Why do you try anything? My psychoanalysis guy wants to know if I will try in school, and why I didn't before. I don't have a reason for trying at school. So what's yours?


Thanks,

From Holden
