Barbie life in the media dreamhouse

Pinterest has played a major role in my coming of age and identity development. The popular social media platform has inspired me to dream big and find my own way of living in terms of lifestyle and personal satisfaction.

Pinterest for example, which provides a very dreamy idealistic image of life, that I of course acknowledge, has still however given me a purpose, in a sense that those pictures I see online influence my goals in life such as having an aesthetic looking home, good sense of fashion, and even inspires me to see the world and travel. I store dreams away as pins on a board, keeping them with me as reminders for what I want to achieve.

The media that I consume the most is a way of imagining myself and my future self in an ideal environment that looks pleasing. It is a source of grand inspiration. Media forged me into a dreamer.
