That's what's happening when you sign up for those "Friends Reunited" websites ... in my case it's "Wer kennt wen". And it's quite scary, but I've found already 34 people I know. Lots of them I haven't seen even prior to me moving to the UK in autumn 1998!! And it's just GREAT!!! I wish I could just meet up with them at some point. And there are soooo many that I am still "searching for". ;)
Another thing was that when I was searching for music for my playlist (right column) I came across ONE German Song quite by accident, from one of my favourite bands back in the 80s & 90s (Pur). Now I am sitting here and listen to the CDs I got from them (11!!) plus 2 more CDs from German Bands.
And of course that brings back TONS of memories... ;) Right now I am wondering what would have been if I hadn't moved to the UK. Would I be married? Would I have started yet another "circle of friends"? What kind of job would I do? One thing I am nearly certain about is that I wouldn't be a scrapper! :) Nor would I be involved in American Football (apart from maybe watching). SCARY, the 2 things that have huge impact on my life right now.
How about you? What do you think would have happened if you would have taken a different turn in life?
