itโ€™s a weird thing to stay in touch with friends and colleagues because on one hand, you wished they would help you out. On the other, it feels awkward to ask, especially when itโ€™s been a long time since you last spoke

I can see your point. Okay, Iโ€™ll admit I โ€œtryโ€ to stay in touch with people I genuinely like and then there are those that would gladly forget :laughing:. In terms of asking for help, I just like to remind people โ€œhey, remember meโ€ :wave:t3:. (especially with the current situation), itโ€™s easy to forget about people you donโ€™t see frequently.
