Personal {Skype and Family}


I love how my family gets together, whether it's a birthday or just to visit someone who is sick.  An uncle had his birthday during the weekend, and because he and his family lives in the US, everyday got around the laptop to talk to him on Skype. I remember in the past, we had to pay hundreds of dollars for a long distance call. Now, it's free, as long as you have internet and you have Skype. Keeping in touch with family has gotten easier. But I also think it has made a lot of people, including myself, complacent. With distant relatives  seemingly becoming not-so-distant anymore, it becomes easier to forgo talking or catching up, just because we think they're just a phone call or a Skype chat away. Sometimes it is like that, but there are times when it's no longer that easy. My family's penchant for keeping close and coming together is something I'm relearning to appreciate.

Happy birthday Tito Dado!
