I had a lot of thinking these past days mostly about how things are much different now than when I was about eight years old. During those times, only a handful had their own mobile phones and I was lucky enough to have one when even my teachers didn’t have one. They’d even borrow one from me. No pre-paid lines as well. So not responsible with using it then, I’d call people I didn’t know and hang up on them just because I was bored. And calls per minute then are way more expensive too. My dad would reprimand me when my line’s bill reached more than Php3000 plus. I do not remember if texting already existed then. Or maybe I was just not aware about it. Now there’s internet.
There’s video calling and it’s free… well kind of as you still need to pay for your internet connection. I just hope internet here doesn’t suck this much. Another thing I love is online video conferencing, I could talk to Daddy and Bee at the same time. There’s blogging too. An online journal. These are just some of the things I appreciate having been born in this day and age. Will I ever survive in the 1800′s if I was born then? I guess so. You don’t long for something you have no idea about.
