Being separated from family, friends and loved ones isn’t easy. Especially when you and the other people involved have similar insane, hectic and continent-hopping lifestyles. No amount of emails, phone calls or skype/webcam conversations can ever replace face-to-face time or physical contact. It’s interesting how I’ve only been here in New York a few days and I’m starting to miss my family; haven’t spoken to my parents in a week. A phone call is definitely overdue.
