When I was the student editor for the school paper in junior college, a student exchange group from Japan visited the school and I was excused from classes to cover the activities organised for the group.
Among the group, I took a liking to several students and exchanged email/snail mail addresses with some to keep in contact (ie. penpals - yes yes, such as old fashioned communication tool, but I still like it).
But the only one who wrote back regularly was a girl named Yoshie.
I must admit my letters must've made her laugh, since I was obsessed with Sailor Moon and otaku-ish stuff. Such an embarassing past. (^__^;)
Anyway, my family moved and the email address I used became a defunct company one. And in the move, my mum threw out a lot of stuff, including sentimental items I owned, such as letters. So I wasn't able to contact Yoshie, but I held onto this little black clay cat bell she had given me on the last day the exchange group was in the school.
Fast forward some 12 years and I get an email from Yoshie!
She found some old letters and an email address, but as they bounced back and she didn't get a reply, she tried Google and discovered this LJ. I can't believe it and am thrilled to bits to be in touch with her.
So hello, Yoshie!!! (^0^)/
And Google, you are awesome! (笑)
