Why I Heart My Media

The reason why I love my media is that I can still be connected with my American friends whom I met during my gap year. Through Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook I stay updated on what is going on in their lives. I don’t have to talk to them everyday to stay close and when I do talk to them via Skype or FaceTime, it doesn’t feel like it has been ages when I last spoke to them.

And vice versa, when I lived in the United States, staying in touch with my family was really easy too, because of my media. I never really felt homesick because I could talk to my parents whenever I wanted (most of the time).

Media makes long distances feel like nothing and that’s why I Heart My Media.
