I was using Tik Tok, a social media platform where you post short-form videos. Tik Tok also has a “Go Live” function, where you can have live interaction with your audience and anyone else on the platform.

Browsing through my feed, I came across someone who was “Live” at the time, and noticed they looked very familiar. As it turns out, it was my best friend that I hadn’t seen since we were children. After reconnecting through Tik Tok and having a brief conversation to catch up with each other, we discovered that we both now live in Milwaukee! And, to our surprise, we also have friends in common!
