Media – A Magic Eraser

I was born in a small town, having a happy childhood with my neighbors and friends around communities. There seemed no difference whether there were media in my life or not.

But since my middle school, I had lived in the capital of our province, which is far away from my hometown. I can only communicate with my parents and friends of childhood online. In that time, media become crucial to me. What’s more, for all the classmates were from different regions, we can only kept contact and shared our lives on social media platform on holiday. You know, adolescents are tired of living with families all whole vacations. So we did value media provide us opportunities to have a fancy break with the same ages out of boring and even annoying life with parents, though we are seperated in space.

Today, we live in media, with technologies connected and a lot of convenience offered by media. For example, you can easily find all kinds of videos on YouTube, which make you fun, help you cook even better than your mom, and even help you prepare for your examination when you are in the emergency hoping for a miracle. But the most important reason why I love media is still that media erasure the distance and time difference between me and my intimate friends. It makes me feel like we are always together, and forever.

We are humans, who need communicate and company. So lucky to have media , and also my friends in my life.
