My virtual world

I live in a virtual world where everything is just a click away and distance is nothing but a numerical computation of how far apart objects are

Video calls, chats and facetime are great ways to talk to family and friends, watch your nephews’ funny faces, attend family reunions as well as “Barkada” get togethers. You get to laugh with them, cry with them, maybe even eat along like you were actually there with them…

Facebook and Twitter gets you connected with old friends and former schoolmates, learn about what they are presently up to, and maybe even support them in their latest endeavors. It’s fun reminiscing with old classmates, fun times and even times you want to forget. And realize along with them how much you have learned so much, even though you hated school then…

I know it’s not the same as hugging my nephews till they beg me to let them go, or kiss my parents and sisters, or play cards with my friends, or attend our 20th alumni homecoming with my high school batch mates… but it’s as close to home as I can get… and all I need is an internet connection.

High School Reunion

Been delinquent in updating my blogs lately. Found myself busy and hanging out in Facebook more often this past week.

My email inbox almost full, my cellphone and iPad going crazy with push notifications almost every minute and all because of this 1 page with most of the alumnae from my High School. Former school mates from all over the globe posting and commenting 24/7. It was crazy, and i love it!

It’s fun to reminisce and chat with old schoolmates. Bitter sweet memories with friends and foes; funny anecdotes from teachers; favorite places to hang out in; lessons learned and so many other stuff. Feels like being in school again.

I don’t know how long it’ll last though, but as long as there are people posting and commenting on the page, that’s where I’ll be untill the novelty of it dies down.

2000++ comments and still counting. Nowhere near the world record of 9000, but it's fun trying to at least get close to it.
