Yet, in good way, some friends have changed, I noticed. During school days, M was rather quiet. She is now extremely cheerful and made us laugh with her cynical yet very funny sense of humor. Nice to see all these friends and they are doing well. Some have children and some are single, some are working and some have promoted to senior/high position in a corporate world.
Y was very good friend while I was at St. Margaret's, but we lost contacts after a while. We figured that was because both of us kept moving. I moved a few times and also changed job.
She immediately sent me e-mail after the gathering, which was sweet. Funny thing is it seems she got too excited seeing all the friends and had fever that night. ( Sounds like a child !)
It is interesting that most of us still live in the same area..... Western part of Tokyo.... the area called Yamanote..... residential area with greenery.
