Once upon a time, a high school English teacher discussed the theory of Tabula Rasa and ever since, it's resonated with you (and, hey, it was even the name of an episode of your beloved Buffy the Vampire Slayer.) While it's not the philosphical concept, but rather the accepted translation of the phrase, know it's an amazing gift you've received today: a clean slate!
Make it a good and sweet year/life. So many new things and second chances have opened up for you recently. Now it's time for you to live boldly!Love,
Super excited but will kick your heinie if you squander this opportunity
