Skype on a mobile phone

I have just installed skype on my mobile phone and have yet to test it. it’s wifi enabled phone which means that anywhere there’s a hotspot I should be able to make phone calls via skype. it’s going to be fun to chat with people without paying for the connection.

On being an Resident assistant

Being a resident assistant is a great job at the same time as it’s a lot of responsibility.
