NaBloPoMo - Wednesday, July 3, 2013

 

#NaBloPoMo Prompt for Wednesday, July 3, 2013
Do you think you still spend the same amount of time connecting in the face-to-face world now that socializing is so easy online?

I used to spend the same amount of time connecting face-to-face until I had to become a hermit due to being a responsible adult. Read more about that HERE. As I mentioned recently, I need to be around people. It kills me that I'm not around them more than I am now. I'm thankful for the ability to socialize online though because lately without at least that kind of interaction I would feel more lonely than I could ever tolerate. Speaking of which- anyone want to have coffee and chat over the internet? Skype? Anyone? Crickets? ugh...

As one of my friends told me it would be kind of awkward having coffee or "meeting for drinks" via Skype or some other face to face app online because in real life you don't sit looking at each other the whole time and that's really all you can do when you are video chatting...she makes a good point...I guess it could be weird to try and "hang out" via video chat and randomly take a sip of a beverage during the awkward silence moments... plus there would be no people watching and nothing to do other than look at one another. Fine- I guess that won't work...guess I'll have to just invite people over to my apartment for coffee. That just means I have to clean my place now...
