Have a larger group of people or don't have an iPhone? Houseparty is a way to stay in touch with your friends and be able to all talk at once.

4. Oovoo

Bring back those eighth grade nights where people Oovoo'd all hours of the night.

5. Snapchat/Instagram/Twitter/Facebook

All of the above social medias are great ways to follow and share how your life is going to the world.

6. Texting

Texting is a fun way to keep in touch because it saves people the energy of actually talking on the phone. Plus you can send emojis.

7. Talking on the phone

As old fashioned as this sounds, it is a perfect way to keep in touch no matter how far apart you may be.

Send a letter in the mail

This is a way to keep in contact without ever having to use electricity. Plus handwriting a letter makes it come from the heart more.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
