Last week I got an email from a long-lost AIESEC friend in another part of the world who disappeared from the face of the earth when we were both in college. He'd found my name via the AIESEC alumni network, which has recently become active again with the upcoming AIESEC Alumni Asia Pacific Congress 2011 to be held in Manila from October 21-23, 2011.
If you're an AIESEC Alumni and haven't signed up yet for this international meeting, please sign up by clicking here.
Anyway, this friend, who was one of the first people from AIESEC Japan I met when I moved to Japan for third-year college, sent me an interesting message via Facebook. "Long time no-see," he wrote. "I apologize for not having contacted you for so many years. You are entitled to hit me twice when we meet again. But hopefully we will become good friends again later."
His message made me smile but I was just too busy to reply right away. Well, just this morning, I finally found time to reply. I wrote: "Nice to hear from you after 500 years. And I'm not angry about the no-contact. You were young and stupid then. Hopefully you're smarter now."
Of course I put a smiley face at the end of my message. I think I was entitled to a bit of a tease after such a long period of silence.
SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME
ABOUT THIS SONG
I was typing this message out in my car on my way to work. Then, I was listening to my usual radio station, and a song I'd heard twice or thrice and really liked came on again. I don't know who sings it but I've tried to google and search for this song on You Tube using the lyrics of the song, but I haven't even found anything remotely resembling a clue.
I really like this song, and if anyone knows the title or the singer, you would so make my day. The lyrics are pretty ordinary but the melody is a real pick-me-upper and a really nice way to start the day. I'd love to get this into my iPod.
Email us please at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Refrain of this unknown song
I want to tell the world you're mine
I can't stop thinking about last night
My heart just wants to say
What a morning
when you're by my side
What a morning
It's just you and I
Let's share this time
Everyday, in love.
