Living in a foreign country, one where few people speak your language (not just linguistically, but culturally as well) is not easy. It’s certainly led me to bouts of sadness and melancholy, and wishing I were closer to my friends back home. I’ve written about this before, I know, but now Buzzfeed has written a fun article which describes 19 Ways To Stay Close To Long-Distance Friends.
While I don’t know how many I’ll try (or be able to physically accomplish, what with time zones and 2 year olds) but it’d be nice to at least make a promise to myself to try and be a better long distance friend. I mean, did you know there was an app that let’s you watch a movie together while you video chat? I didn’t. Anyone down to catch a flick this weekend?
