media allows me to be in touch with my friends and family. when i moved to amsterdam i new no one. not a single person. thanks to many internet communicators i am able to talk to my loved ones every moment i want to, i need to. moving for studies abroad definitely wouldn’t be an option for me if not for that, especially after lockdown when i got used to seeing my closets ones every day. even tho media sometimes suck: all the hate speech, messing with mental health and so much more ;i still love the opportunities they give. during lockdown i didn’t see my grandparents, i didn’t wanted to jeopardize their health, thanks for media i was able to see them and talk to them without having to scream from the street to them standing on a balcony. now when i moved abroad i LOVE facetiming my best friend for a morning coffee and a cigaret, we wouldn’t be able to do that from 1300km apart if not for media. LOVE is such a big word i wouldn’t use to describe my relationship with media, but being able to communicate with my loved ones comforts me and i LOVE that. so thank you media for keeping me comfy.
