Have you seen this video? It makes me want an iPhone 4S so terribly bad.
This afternoon I took my friend Jessica in Spain on a Skype tour of my apartment, and was able to ever-so-proudly recite to her my poem full of rolling R's in Spanish. I also tweeted at my friend Mia in the Netherlands and I emailed with my godmother in California, all within the same hour.
Today I'm grateful for technology. I love being able to stay in touch no matter how far away I am in the world, because its the little things - like laughing at my new Dominican words over video chat - that make all the difference on a mundane Wednesday afternoon.
