A friend of mine finally convinced me to create an account on Facebook. Facebook is one of those "social networking" sites, and I have to be honest, I haven't quite figured it out yet.
However, one of the cool things about it is finding friends who you totally lost contact with. It reminds me of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon -- this friend knows that friend who knows another that WOAH, you actually know.
So just today, I've found my roommate from DLI (1988), who was also my roommate for a while in Korea (1989). What a blast from the past! I had to go dig up my photo album from that time and found her wedding pictures, which reminded me of running to the flower market in the early morning to get flowers for her bouquet. And suddenly there are all these amazing memories flooding back -- I love nostalgia, and can (and do) get completely lost in it.
This is exactly what I love about the Internet -- the ability not only to reach out and meet all sorts of new and interesting people, but to be able to locate and find long lost friends -- that's amazing!
So if you have a Facebook profile and want to connect, just click here -- I'll meet you there!
