I had a pen pal in 4th or 5th grade. It was part of our English class. He was one year younger than me, from Stockholm Sweden, and really nice. We exchanged several letters. I still remember little details, but can not remember his name. We both loved the movie Duck Soup, and referenced it often. We had several things in common. It was fun talking to him. As others said, the Internet happened. Hand written letters and trips to the library soon died.
Just a funny side note about my pen pal: Years later I read an interview with Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman) saying his favorite movie is Duck Soup. He has loved it since childhood. He is from Stockholm, and a year younger than me. I often think... What are the chances?? Even if it wasn't him, I will pretend it was. Lol.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
