I guess the only good thing about it is that I don't have to worry about emails as much and just focus on livejournal as my current addiction. :)
Well there was at least one person I want to keep in contact with, but they seem to be busy and not replying.
ETA : they replied to let me know that they are still around, which is good. :) They are ok, but busy. Will hopefully be able to keep in contact again.
