e-Buddies of the Month
Each month, we will profile one of our many fantastic e-Buddies pairs! If you would like for your match to be profiled, please contact us!
This month we are featuring Ashleigh and Monica!
As many of us are lucky enough to know, e-Buddies unites people in friendship no matter how far away they live from each other. Ashleigh and Monica know this well. Ashleigh is from California, and Monica is from Massachusetts. Even though they live nearly 3,000 miles apart, these two e-Buddies still have a strong friendship. In fact, when asked to share something surprising about her experience with e-Buddies, Monica jokes, "[Ashleigh] lives on one coast and I live on the other! So that leads to very late or very early emails sometimes!" Then she adds, "We have such different weather that's it's nice to hear about her nice weather in Cali while I tell her about my adventures in the snow."
April marked one year of friendship for Ashleigh and Monica, and the two friends have shared many stories over this time. Ashleigh and Monica agree that one of the best parts of being an e-Buddy is talking about the simple parts of life. Ashleigh tells us, "We both like pets, we both walk our dogs, we like summer, we have a lot in common." Monica agrees and says, "It's nice to just share the simple happenings of the day or what you look forward to in the summer."
Sometimes the fun things to talk about are the things that you do not have in common. Ashleigh points this out when she says, "[Monica] likes different things and itís [enjoyable] to learn new things about other people."
Monica really sums it up when she says, "One of the best parts of being an e-Buddy is looking forward to the emails. They're not work related or spam or chain letters, just friendly emails from someone who wants to hear how things are going. Another great aspect of being an e-Buddy is that I can be involved at any time or from any where."
Letís all send a warm e-Buddies congratulations to Ashleigh and Monica, our e-Buddies of the month for May!!!
