10 things I hate about you

I hate the way you talk to me,
and the way you overshare.

I hate the way you spread violence.

I hate it when you don’t care.

I hate your big dump moneymaking CEO’s,
and the way you read my mind.

I hate you so much it makes me addicted,
it even makes me rhyme.

I hate the way you say you’re always right.

I hate it when you lie.

I hate it when you make me laugh,
even worse when you make me cry.

I hate it when you’re not around,
and the fact that you can make me feel so small.

But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you,

not even close…

not even a little bit…

not even at all.

With this, not so subtle, film reference I hope to show you that the way I feel about media is kind of like a coin. There are two sides and they’re inevitably combined to one. Like sadness or pain are things that can only exist because love does. So eventhough it hurts me to see the negativity caused by media and I often struggle finding a healthy balance in the way I use my media, I love my media wholeheartedly. Why? Because of stories! We give eachother so much by sharing stories, whether through film, books or even things like reddit. They make us understand and through that feel a deep sense of connection with eachother and the world we live in.
