Voting

My friends inform me that I’m supposed to vote in the state election today (well Saturday, today their time).
Of course I can’t, because I’m not there. I just hope they don’t fine me.
I’m on IRC now, which is the way in which I always kept in touch with my friends back home. It’s strange now though because there is such a time difference. It’s like it was before, but slightly different. It’s good though because we can chat like we always used to do. I’m just annoyed it took so long to get hooked up. Even though I’ve been really busy here recently, there were a number of times when I felt lonely and I really wanted to just get on the computer and chat with my friends.
