What media is to me

I love and enjoy media because it involves me with things that happen all around the world. Nowadays it’s not just your friends you have that you share interests with, but it’s the whole internet that’s full of people with either similar or surprisingly different ideas. This goes as far from being inspired to being provoked. Media for me is great, because it’s as relevant as it gets and the cool thing about it is that it’s changing all the time. It never stays the same, not for a single day. It’s something that stretches really far: from film, to advertising, to the way you stay up-to-date on the news. So, as I’m part of the ‘internet generation’ it is impossible to think away the internet, along with all media. It’s a part me, I guess..
