Why I <3 Media

With my parents living in Spain, one of my best friends living in England, the other in America and me being in Amsterdam, social media is the one thing that still keeps them close to me.
Not a day goes by where I don’t have contact with them, despite them being thousands of kilometers away. Sometimes this can be Facetiming with them for hours, some days its just a snapchat. But even the smallest of contact with them is contact, and this would not be possible without social media. Imagine only being able to write letters to each other. And even if I don’t always speak with them, their social media feeds will still keep me updated on their day-to-day life, and vice-versa. I could not imagine a world without media, and I feel like it makes my life so much richer. That is why I heart media ❤
