Do I Love Media?

I don’t know what it is about media that can trigger me like nothing else can. I love it and hate it at the same time. When I think of the times when I was young and would watch television with my family on a rainy Sunday I feel nothing but love. The nostalgia takes over and I forget all about the bad parts of media. But when I look at today, the amount of time I spend on my phone, when I get upset with myself for missing instagram when it is down for a couple of hours, or when I see a beautiful sunset and want to post it instead of enjoying it in the moment. I feel sad and angry at media for making me feel that longing.. So the question is, do I really love media?
