Writing

Write an article-what are you nostalgic about and why
Technology has changed the world that we live in, it has made our life easier and better. Even so, I feel nostalgic when I’m listening old music and watching TV ,who is reading a letter to someone. Nowadays , we communicate via online with someone more than meet offline. People use emoji to represent their feelings. It’s simple and fast , but sometimes feel perfunctory(…).once upon a time , when I wrote letter to a friend , at that time we also have a pure pen pal.
I tried my best to put my all true words on the paper. Hope she/he felt it when read it. I also expected the reply , how and when the letter reached to me.
Even now , however we have a real-time() communication with freiends, I prefer to make an appointment to meet them, or send a letter when I send a gift to them .

Write an article-what are you nostalgic about and why
Technology has changed the world that we live in (which is happening really quickly) and it has made our lives easier and better. Even so, I feel nostalgic when I’m listening to old music and watching someone on TV, who is reading a letter to someone. Nowadays , we communicate via online with someone more than meeting / we meet offline. People use emoji to represent their feelings. It’s simple and fast , but sometimes feel superficial / hollow / meaningless. Once / one time, when I wrote letter to a friend , at that time we also have a pure pen pal.
I tried my best to put my all true words on the paper. I hope she/he felt it when they read it / when reading it. I also looked forward to the reply , however and whenever the letter reached to me.
Even though we are in constant contact / we are able to contact friend whenever and however we want, I prefer to make an appointment to meet them, or send a letter when I send a gift to them.
