My childhood, seen by Google Maps


(My childhood, seen by Google Maps, originally uploaded by mathowie)

Something I never anticipated in a million years was finding out that my good friend Kathryn Yu recognized names and places in this shot, then over IM we realized we attended the exact same elementary school (she, 8 years after me, and it’s just off to the right edge of the screenshot). Turns out that she grew up less than a mile away from my house, and though I’ve known Kathryn for 3 years, it never came up until today. Unbelievable.
