i don't know when the last time i wrote a letter was. i use email primarily for work. but i agree with all of the above sentiments regarding time to craft thoughts and express things more clearly. i stumble over myself in conversation.

it is, for me too.

it's perfect to express my disrespect towards him. i have him on ignore, so most of the times i reply with "stfu scotty", i haven't even read what he has said. and that's how it should be. it's no longer about what he says. it hasn't been about that for a long time.

thankfully my best friend doesn't use skype or any other form of social media so i don't have to go checking a bunch of different areas of the web for messages. we do a lot of emailing because i know no one wants to look at their phone while they're at work.

our emails almost read like texts, though. like, the other day i sent her a link to a free streaming movie online (Rec - iz really good!) and asked her what shape frames look best on my head since she saw me most often in glasses.

she used to write faithfully to a guy in jail (one she knew - not some pen pal from online) and their letters were soooo long. she'd always let me read them and his penmanship and prison art were impressive.

i occasionally write letters to my family when a phone call won't do. sometimes i want to express myself beyond the ''this is how i'm doing right now. how are you?''.

It does sound like it was good timing to contact her. My best friend went through a few Skype interviews in the past and she got a job in a law firm in NYC because of one. And I mean, she literally just scheduled her interview in between classes and sat alone in one of those breakout rooms for 45 minutes. I got the impression that as long as you wear good clothes, brush your hair and are generally a pleasant person that is enough because they don't give you an interview unless they liked your resumé anyway. The interview is just to make sure you're not a total weirdo in person, I think. Your case is not even about a job necessarily, so I wouldn't worry too much about it especially since she's family. I think it's important to have a connection like that, they might really help you in the future. All about the networking.

I don't know how old you are but I finished my undergrad later than average but my professors knew I was committed and interested and I felt they "believed" in me. I went from a no name state university in the US to the #13 in the world in my area for grad school and that's because I had recommendation letters from professors who were Princeton, Georgetown and Columbia alumni. I don't necessarily believe in these rankings, but it's the kind of stuff that fills my parents with pride and validates me or something.

I am very inconsistent at communicating, my FB wall is blocked, the only emails I reply within 24 hours are school or career related. My family sends me messages all day on WhatsApp and I really can't deal and they get angry. I text every other day and skype once every two weeks and that is good for me but for them it's like I'm the ungrateful evil daughter. My sister is a goddamn doctor and talks to them on the phone every day, which probably shoots down any of my "I'm busy!" excuses. I have like 5 friends who I actually care to check up on, so that isn't overbearing.
