The truth is I have really bad reasons. I've never been known for my communications skills. I tend to keep in touch with people using technology-enabled methods, such as Facebook or here on LJ. Sometimes even on IM. And always SMS. I'm not big on phone calls and e-mail.
I think that the way I choose to communicate with people causes problems sometimes, and I know that everytime I try to change it, I do really good for a few weeks, but then I settle back into my old habits.
So, for those who have written and called, please know I haven't forgot you. Just try to imagine that I spend lots of time in front of a computer and taking phone calls (even when I am traveling). So in my free-time, I tend to lead a tech-free existence.
I'm working on getting better at communication more often and more frequently. So your patience with me is appreciated :)
