Media, media,

You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen! Even the ugly has charm! Even the biggest tragedies are filled with romance! Even in the darkness one can find warmth! Everything is fantastic! You let me wrap myself in your endless stream, and in your embrace I lulled myself to believe the well-crafted stories you let me lose my mind in. From page to page and screen to screen I felt like I was falling in between of all the seats. You allowed me to indulge in things I could have done very well without but at the end of the night it’s not your fault that you amplified what my mind was so frantically searching for in every page and every photo, and what I was seeing was just a feeling of not feeling so great, I suppose. Now that my head is sunnier you seem a lot funnier and we get along oh so well. Love is complicated and so are you.
