While everyone insists on exchanging greetings over Facebook and Twitter, you can't help but wonder what happened to the good old days of mail.You want the sophistication, the class and the plot lines that aren't about aliens, natural disasters or vampires. Is there any better feeling than holding the weight of an envelope in your hand?I didn't want to wear their clothes or play their games. I refused to join Facebook or Instagram and wouldn't go with them to the concerts and movies they found so fun. “Why, dear, you're just an old soul.”That was it, I was diagnosed.I'd sit at home, alone with my parents as they asked me why I never went out with anymore.

I wasn't sure what was wrong, but I had lost all interest in everything my friends loved so much and this made it hard to keep it up. All I wanted to do was watch old Fellini films, go to jazz clubs and shop for Parisian chic outfits that reminded me of Audrey Hepburn. She said it so simply, so clearly and made it so easy for me to understand and accept.
