In a world of texting, social media, and Skype, we increasingly rely on electronic communication to stay in contact with the people we care about, that are both near and far. I totally admit that I am often one of these very people, relying on Facebook Messenger group chats to reach out to my friends more than I ever pick up a phone to call them.
That being said, I’ve always liked to keep a balance in my life and to offset incessant reliance on electronic gadgets to keep me in the loop with all my friends and family. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved writing letters to the people I’m closest with on the topics of anything and everything. Particularly, my cousin and I write frequent letters to each other about the goings-on of our lives; it’s a routine I’m happy to have picked up and something I feel everyone should get into the habit of doing.
