Being away from family and really good friends is not as easy as what we presume it to be. I have been exceptionally close with everybody and finding me far from these special people for almost more than months in succession brings certain pressures. In the little time that I find to be in their company is very valuable and I do try my best to make the most of every minute.
There are times wherein communication is not even possible because of certain locations that my work takes me. However, once in a while, I get myself hooked up to the internet to check mail and see how everyone else is doing. It is not surprising that I get caught up in between special occasions and all I could do is send handwritten letters by post and even Christmas Cards on such seasons.
