When it comes to keeping in touch with friends.. I am a real flake. Abominable actually. It's not that I don't think of them and wonder how they are doing, it's the actual keeping in touch part I am nightmarishly bad at.
Over the past couple of weeks I finally sent a slew of long overdue emails. Apologising profusely for my radio silence and updating old friends on what's been happening in my life over the past year.. or two.
Once I actually stop worrying about it and just get in contact already! it's absolutely awesome to find out what everybody has been up to. Catching up rules.. It's easy once you get a round tuit.
Anyway, I feel just a little smug about my current lack of interpersonal procrastination*. Hell, since getting a smart phone I've even been answering text messages (yes, I have a history of shying away from phones too).
In fact, that smart phone has made all the difference: Take it from me, it's an invaluable tool for the socially inapt. I mean, I actually check my emails numerous times a day now, back when I had a "phone-phone" I'd leave my inbox to fester for weeks or months at a time (just like my facebook account). I am sure the socially capable can appreciate smart phones too, but I wouldn't know about that ;D
So, does keeping in touch with other humanoids come easy to you, or do you have to give your own arm a sharp twist like I do?
*okay, okay - there are still a couple more emails to write
