Media Love

These days, I can’t go through the day without catching a glimp of media. When I wake up, the first thing I do is check my phone to see if I got any messages, E-mails or other notifications from my social media accounts. And at the end of the day, most of the time I find myself in bed, watching Netflix or search for music on Spotify. Basically I wake up and go to sleep with it, but why is media so important to me these days?

Media is for me important to not only keep in touch with my friends and family, it also gives me acces to wide my network and knowledge. For example, last summer I traveled in Thailand for a month, over there I met so many new people from all over the world. Media provides me to keep in touch with them, through social media I planned my next trip with a few people I met during my holiday. It’s great that there is a way to stay connected with the world through shared messages, pictures or stories.

I heart media because I basically can’t live without it anymore, that why it’s so important to me. Through media I can stay connected with friends, manage my business and school stuff and it keeps me updated from news all over the world.
