I so have to thank Facebook!
It was yesterday, that I sat in front of my PC and during a photo-editing-session, I suddenly had in mind: Search for your old school mates. And the first name that popped into my head was: Angela.
We were such good friends during school, we only went to school together for 2 and a half year, but we were... heart and soul. During 2003 we lost touch. She moved to vienna (that is 200 km away from me) and we both started to work in our first job. So our lives went into different directions.
Angela was always so much fun to be, we really enjoyed some crazy time together. I think the last time I saw her, was when I visited her in Vienna. So that has to be about 6 years ago.
I could not find her on facebook first, I misstyped her last name (see for my 10 things about me list in the previous post and you'll know the thing about my bad memory). So I thought ... google knows everything. And I found her via Google-Images. It showed her facebook profile picture - so I knew - she is on facebook. And the rest is history ;)
I found her, and added her to my friends with the words: "aaahhhh angie! do you remember me?"
Yes she did.
She mailed back: "I can't believe it. Just a few days ago I've been thinking about you and how sad it is that we lost touch."
I responed I can exactly remember the last time I was thinking about her (haha this time - no bad memory haha). The day I was at the Aerzte-Concert (3.7. post). She was (and still is) a big fan of this band and I thought maybe she is there. Maybe we are both there and do not know.
So I mailed her my phone number and just a few hours later - she called me. It was so great to hear her voice and to get a little update on her life. She is still in Vienna. And she is living her dream - she's currently in police-school. She always wanted to join the police, and now she did. We talked a while and decided to meet as soon as she is visiting her family here again or maybe when I'm Vienna for the Tori Amos concert in September.
And here is a picture from both of us during our school time. It was the last week and the class decided to take a few photos. This one here shows the spirit of her and me - fooling around and really sticking together.
