You should be starting primary school right about now. It's nice here, you'll like it a lot. Well, you will until about Year 5. It all goes a bit tits up from there but you'll be fine. Just bear with. You've got a few years until then anyway.
If I could offer you any advice, stop being so serious. Honestly just lighten up a little. It's fine to get in a little bit of trouble sometimes- it's more fun that way. You're trapped in a mould of what you see as 'perfect' and if you're completely honest with yourself, it's boring right? Just do something- give yourself a bit of personality.
In general though, these few years are pretty good to you. If I'm honest, I don't remember much, but I'm sure you have a lot of fun. I've noticed that, my brain especially, is awfully good at remembering the bad bits- the time you wet yourself, the time you got your first 'Warning', the time you fell out with your best friend- but not so great at remembering the good bits. You're 4 though, things can't be that bad.
Stop being so desperate to grow up. Embrace the fact you're surrounded by magic and dreams and hope. Cling onto them, they'll serve you well in your later years.
Other than that, have fun. Eat chicken nuggets and ice cream. Have teddy-bear picnics and run so fast you could fly. Just be a kid.
