I love my media because.. I love to share the highlights of my life: the moments of euphoria. I normally never really (or never try to) share my private life with others through media, but when life is just awesome and I feel amazing, I feel the desire to share a picture or comment and let my followers know about it. For example: my Instagram account. When seeing it you’ll notice that I’m not actively sharing my daily life. Instead, I occasionally share a sunny holiday picture, or a birthday picture with a big smile on my face, surrounded by friends. 
I know it’s a bit silly, but I can’t help it: social media to me feels like a stage, and I only enter it when i’m feeling great or doing great things.
