The person's activities for the years go as follows:
The person was reckless, sending letters each and every day without fail.
The person was still reckless. Their house caught on fire, and they didn't notice until only their shirt collar was left.
The person calmed down and published the letters on their mixi journal. Their MyMixis maxed out the counter.
The person quit their job as an office worker and wrote for a magazine. They also released a poem compilation.
