- and explain why the message was important to you?
Well, text messages are not cared for by youngsters because they like to communicate via other communication websites like WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook. As for as I am concerned, I was very happy to receive a text message a month ago. It was sent by my bosom friend, who has been living in Canada, and he sent me birthday wishes, and the text message had a picture with sound. When I opened it, I listened again to the same song that I used to listen to in the past, and the title was my heart is breathing. It was so dear to me. I really forgot my resentment toward my friend. It was beautifully decorated that now I have no words to explain it and this message was very important for me because it was the first message from my friend after so many years and the other reason might be of misunderstanding that was in our relationship that we stopped talking to each other particularly when we both were doing bachelors. So this message revived our old relationship and recalled the moments that I had with my friend; and this message really gave a chance to our relationship, and we became friends again. We started to communicate with each other. I have not deleted it and kept it safely.
They are numerous messages as well as texts people receive in their day-to-day life. Some messages are important, and some messages or not, so in this modern era messaging plays an integral role in the lifestyle of the human because it is a prominent factor. And here I would like to talk about a time when I got the important messages from my university, so it was a quite daunting time. I remember vividly when I completed the secondary school examination. I was in a dilemma about which university would be compatible with my carrier; after a lot of struggle, I did and decided to pursue my further studies abroad, so I applied for the offer letters in Canadian universities. So it was an online application, and I filled the form with my details, including my email as well as a phone number. Moreover, I spent around 20 to 25 days, and I was afraid about my offer letter because no one university takes that kind of period, and mostly offer letters could be released in 5 to 6 days. Moreover, I was worried about my future, and I also contacted my consultant and had a conversation with the supervisor of the university team. And they told me that I should notify them when I complete all the criteria of this university. I spent around 25 days. Afterwards, in the morning, I woke up and checked my phone. I had a text message notification on my phone from the university, the message of my offer letter. Congratulations, your offer letter has been approved, so you also get a scholarship to this university; I felt over the moon and shared this news with my family and friends. Seriously I have never felt that kind of happiness in my life, so that was the message that changed my whole life. Furthermore, I still remember that text and that day very correctly when I received a message from the university.
