    It's A Bit Difficult

    Most of my friends are literally on another continent, so I'm always atleast 5-15 hours behind or forward. I wake up when they're sleeping or vice versa. I can talk to them now cuz I'm on summer vacation, I don't think I'll be able to when school reopens.

    It's hard to have deep

    and lengthy conversations. All we seem to have time for is 'Hi, how are you?'. Then it's off to work or bed or our free time runs out.

    Yes! Most of my EP friends are six hours ahead

    of me. When I wake up, they are well into their day. When they go to bed, it's just early evening for me. Today, I'm feeling really annoyed by it and wishing I was in the same time zone as them. 😔

    Has anyone worked out how to get the site to display the times messages were sent etc in their own timezone rather than GMT-6? I've set the "timezone" thing on my profile to GMT, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.

    I'm Right In the Middle.
