One thing that has been very useful since I got to New Zealand is Skype. Being able to talk to someone over the computer and actually see their face makes a world away seem a lot closer. My parents like it, too. I think it makes them really happy to be able to see me smile and talk to them on their computer screen. It makes you forget how far apart you really are.
I was talking with my parents and sister this morning and they brought my cat Moko on screen! It made me so happy to see her and she even perked up when she heard my voice. It was really adorable. I miss my cat so much. I can’t wait until she is able to come over and live with us. Her vaccines weren’t ready for our trip over so we’re hoping that whenever my parents come to visit, they’ll be bringing Moko too.
My friend Laura also got Skype. It was nice to talk to a friend, too. I miss my friends in New York.
Have you ever used Skype or video chat? What do you think of it?
