Alright, so I am just a slacker. I already had a pen pal! I just hadn’t responded to her in…. let’s say 6 months? I know, I’m a terrible friend and I live with the guilt daily. BUT. That is now changing- commitment to self: write a reply within a week. I can probably do better than that, I need some cushion though. Just to be safe. This is going all the way to Allemagne!
