Missing out can be bearable

And... I missed him.
Thankfully, though, one of the best things about Ruston is the family community we have and the various activities to keep one busy. The first night Kyle left two of my best friends entertained me with a delicious meal, and the next night another friend encouraged me to see the Tech play, “W;t.” I was so busy either having friends over to the house, visiting at Frothy Monkey or shopping at the new Beehive that the days passed rather quickly.

Writing doesn’t exist in vacuum

I, too, have succumbed to the world-wide fixation on the Internet and the instant communication it provides. I mingle in a few online forums and have two journals.
Recently I have watched from my home computer as users of said forums and journals take personal disagreements they have with others to the public.
And I don’t mean just telling a few of their online buddies in the seeming privacy of an Instant Message. They posted their comments on Web sites hundreds, maybe thousands, of users see.
