It was great to hear from you after all this time. Of course I remember you. How could I forget those crazy conversations we had during lunch, not to mention the English class.
So you went all the way to Asia after college. That sounds really interesting. I’ve never been to that part of the world. And you’re in school again! Haven’t you had enough? Just kidding. Actually, I’m jealous. I’d like to go to school again. School life is more carefree.
I have been working in a trading company ever since I graduated from the University of Notre Dame. I have worked my way up to a management position. I enjoy my work, but sometimes I’d really like to get away from it all.
If we can arrange a time, I’d love to meet you for dinner or something. Let me know if you’ve got any ideas.
