“It’s true. It’s very true. You know, what’s interesting though? And again, I think you probably have recognized this as well, being overseas and having a lot of your close friends back at home… Even with the time difference and not being able to talk on the phone, for the individuals that do take the time to either respond to your audio messages or keep that communication open, it really does make a difference. I know one of my friends, she and I, we were close prior to me going to Korea, but we got even closer during my time in Korea because she kept communicating. So it wasn’t like, “Oh, you’re gone. See you when you get back”. It was like, “No, no, even though you’re gone, I still want to communicate with you”. So, the people I stayed in contact with, we got even closer. So yeah, I think it, the messages do make a difference too.”
“That’s surprising because I think it’s quite easy to like drift apart from people when you are farther apart. And like to keep the lines of communication open and communicate, even more, that’s rare. I’m in contact with people, but it’s like on Facebook, on Instagram and there are some friends I have on WhatsApp and I speak with them. But, I think that, yeah, our communication has decreased honestly. So that’s really nice that you had that experience with your friend. Cause yeah, it’s uncommon. It’s rare.”
