oh my media

I love my media – I love that I can connect, interact and create with others. I have always been a collaborative person and media allows me to take this idea of working collectively to the next level. I can easily call my family and friends whilst being abroad, I can fall in love easily and I can speedily enact change.

But my media; it seems too good to be true – does it control me? Sometimes I feel trapped – like I’m trapped inside a VR video game. Everyone feels like they control or have full autonomy over themselves when immersed in and with media. However, that is not the case.

I have bad days. Everyone does. When I think media can be my form of escapism it instead reiterates the root of my insecurities, my unhappiness and my pain.

oh my media – you’re so beguiling and I hate that but I keep wanting more.
