I wish people still wrote letters to each other. To me, it seems so much more heartfelt. There's just a blank page, and you write out all your feelings and thoughts, what you're doing and where you're going.
In a text, it's so informal. Usually with poor grammar and starting with a "what's up?"
People get mad if you don't respond within a ten minute time frame. For letters, people used to wait days. I am about 100 times more happy when I get something in the mail than when I wake up to a text message.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-text. I think it's good for somethings, like quick checking in with a friend or a parent. Letting someone know you're outside, what time something is going on.
But to argue over a text message is something I will not do. You can't understand the tone anyone says. I would call someone and talk any day, rather then text and ask what's wrong. Phone is a much more intimate experience.
The solution would probably mean for me to get a pen pal. Although, I'm 20, probably way to late lol. Isn't that something your supposed to do when you're like 12? But still it seems like a great experience. I'm going to do some research.
There is a commenter, The Blasphemous Atheist (I think), that always comments on my blog and ends with cheers. I love that :).
