Staying in Touch

By the time I was heading off to Case for college, email and online chats had taken off. The ways we could communicate had really changed. My first residence hall room in Norton had two high speed internet hook-ups and a phone line. My roommate and I could both be on the internet and someone could still call. Pretty cool, huh?

Now that seems so out-dated. Who needs a land line when we have cell phones? Email seems slow when I could just text you or see your latest updates on My Space and Facebook. I ventured onto My Space a few months ago and finally signed up for Facebook yesterday. At first, Facebook was almost overwhelming because of the constant news-feeds of so many peoples' lives. I found it really easy to find friends from high school, church camp, college, grad school, and San Antonio. I found a few relatives in there too. It can quickly move from overwhelming to addictive. So what's next?
