Why I love my media

I must start this blogpost off with the distinction of loving and being in love. I see being in love as actively feeling affection in the moment. Those I love you moments or deep intimate moments you share with a significant other, a sibling, a parent, or even a best friend for example like a deep meaningful conversation. I am not in love with media. I do not have those deep intimate moments with media.

Instead the loving relationship I have with media is one wherein I can share, and relax and forget all about the media even though it keeps on supporting me. And it always keeps on supporting me. And when the media do not work as intended I get annoyed.

Have I been taking my media for granted?

Do I not appreciate media enough?

Do I love media, or does media love me?
