My thoughts about media are still a mystery to me. I don’t always want to be in a relationship with it, but trying to live without it is too difficult. Other times, I only see the positive aspects of media and can’t imagine a life without them. Media has always been a big part of my daily life, but it used to be something I used when I was bored or when I really needed it. It has recently become quite meaningful to me. I moved to Amsterdam from my home country, and media allows me to stay connected to my family and friends back home without actually being there. I can look at my friend’s social media posts and feel as if I’m there with them, I can video call my mom and see her smile and I can watch a movie with my boyfriend even when we’re 1000 km apart. I’m very grateful to live in a time where media exists, but I’m also still learning about it and its good and bad sides.
