Me, Myself and Media

I will forever be thankful for Media.

Being an international student I am dealing with a lot of difficulties and challenges and since I’ve moved to Amsterdam my mind has been overwhelmed by new feelings, such as homesickness. To be honest I would never expect myself to be homesick because I’ve always thought about my home town as the worst place where to live, but right now I can only think about the feeling of comfort and protection of it. Whenever I feel at my lowest I pick up my phone and I call or face time my family or my best friend and all the loneliness and sadness fade away; all of this thanks to Media as Face time, Skype and Whatsapp. In addition, I’ve also created my own comfort zone regarding my Media. While scrolling through my Pinterest page I feel a sense of home and peace created from all the aesthetically pleasing pictures that the algorithm choose for me. Even watching a certain tv show or movie on Netflix (or any streaming platform) can change my whole day from a grey and sad one to a sunny one 🙂

At the end of the day, it will always be me, myself and Media but I heart it because Media is where I feel at home ❤
