I LOVE THESE PEOPLE
Carol, me, and Karen.
The three of us went to Taipei American School together from 6th-7th grade. While Carol is one of my best friends, Karen was the best friend. I think. Unless my memory is really bad (it's possible).
We were insanely good friends but lost some touch near the end of high school (we both moved back to the US in 8th grade) and I hadn't seen her in a long time since she moved to the West coast. This summer she's working in Boston so we got to see each other for the first time in more than six years, which was shorter than the last time she saw Carol (not since leaving Taiwan).
I don't know why I'm so lucky to know these people. I wouldn't consider myself very sentimental but I absolutely love Carol and Karen. AND WE ALL GOT PANCAKES! HELLLOOO, WE RULE!
