my home away from home

You know how they say “Home is a place where we belong. A place to return to.” 

But what if you don’t have a place to return to? What if your whole life you’ve been moving countries, schools, apartments? 

I know I sound like im going through my midlife crisis, but its true, I have never in my life considered home as a “place” but more as a “feeling.”

You know that amazing feeling when you flip your pillow over to the cold side at 3am? or when you’re laughing until you’re out of breath?

I get that exact same feeling when I call my sister, when I snap my best friends, when my favourite singer posts on instagram and when I create a new Spotify playlist.

This is exactly why I ❤ Media.

It has kept me connected to every person that has made an impact in my life. It allows me to express myself through pictures, music, videos, texts and much more.

Media makes me feel safe, secure, happy, comfortable, relaxed.

So I guess my home is not four walls and a roof, it is a device that recognises my face in order to open up to a whole new world.
