Dear Megan,

I do not usually read The State News but I was at my job cleaning the Engineering building today and I saw the article about your blog and became compelled to write to you.  I love the idea of the blog because I am on my own mission to branch out as well. I have kept this guard up from letting people into my life and hoping to let it down.

If possible, I would love to meet you to talk over coffee.

Hello Masaki,

Thank you so much for the email. I am glad you happened to stumble upon the State News story. I would love to have coffee. In fact, if you’re available this week, you could be Cup 27. I am free anytime on Thursday or Friday of this week.

Let me know if that works for you!
Thanks,

megan

Hey Megan,

Wow, I am excited and honored that I would be picked to be featured on your blog. I didn’t even think you would write back! I would be free on Thursday any time before 12:00pm (I got class at 12:40) or between 4:00pm and 6:00pm on Thursday would work for me (I have to work at 7:00) . On Friday, I work couple jobs ang get off at 8:30pm. I know that’s not a huge time span but let me know what works best for you. I could maybe take the day off work and enjoy the day with a new friend.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Masaki Takahashi
