Do you remember me? We went to high school together many years ago. We used to eat lunch together in our junior and senior years. We were also in Mrs. Nelson’s English class together. She used to get mad at me because I always turned in my assignments late.
You are no doubt wondering why I am writing you after all these years. The truth is there is no special reason. I was just looking through our high school yearbook the other day, and I started wondering what had happened to all my old classmates.
Let me tell you a little about what I have been up to. As you may remember, I went to the University of Michigan after high school. After I graduated, I went overseas to teach English in Taiwan. I came back last year and now I’m working on a graduate degree. I hope we can meet sometime and I’ll give you the details.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
