My time in British Literature
I think the media is a source of information for the public. Whether it’s by TV, Internet, radio, etc.; everybody gets information. Nowadays information spreads fast and wide. I think to be media literate is to read a text or message whether it is on the internet or on some other way and understand it completely. Also understanding how to create your own message in your own right and letting other people comprehend it. Media is meant to get the daily news about what’s happening around you and in the world. Media sometimes doesn’t give you the full picture of things so it’s better to just look it up and understand it better. That’s why there’s so many different ways to get your information. You can read an article on the internet, read it on a newspaper, or even watch it happen on TV as the news channel tells you about it. To be media literate is to comprehend and decipher a media piece. It’s kind of like reading and understanding a poem and what it means. Like the metaphors and similes and how they fit into the poem. While sometimes they only give you pieces of the full picture, at least they inform you about what’s happening so you know what you’re looking for. The only bad part about that is that sometimes they actually don’t know what’s going on so they play it by ear and what they see. That only usually happens to celebrities though and politics.
this shows how many different ways there are to get your information.
this explains what media and media literate means.
this shows how anyone can see anything nowadays and get information all around the world.

My views have changed dramatically in the sense that I have learned so much and become smarter in doing so. My view has changed in the sense that I can understand and dissect articles, poems, and TV shows. I learned how to see the world in a different view and see how history teaches lessons, also how mythology was based on lessons that people should learn from. This class was different in the sense that I paid more attention in this class than I did in any of my other classes because this class was of my most interesting classes I’ve ever taken. To make this class better, we could of done more projects and had more presentations.
Balance between Phone and humanity
Phone’s have made us separated and social medias have not helped us make new friends. We don’t meet in person and we don’t make friends in the real world but in the digital world and it makes us nerves to hangout outside. We always on the phone and never really talking and hanging out with the ones we love. Nowadays when friends hangout their still on their phones and can’t get off to talk to them and there’s no sense in doing so when people are addicted to their phones. “attention span of an average adult is 1 second behind a gold fish.” We shouldn’t have to be on it all and everyday instead we have to find a balance. Maybe hangout with friends with your phone on silent or totally silent. Maybe turn it off when your hanging out with your grandma or cousins. Maybe go for a walk without your phone, tablets and smell the fresh air. We can use the digital world to connect the world together but don’t always be on your phone or computer instead just be in a balance between our humanity and our digital life. In certain situations, you don’t need phones to connect with other friends when your hanging out with friends. Does that make sense to you? Life needs to be changed and we don’t always need to be on our phones. Some people don’t see this as an addiction but a conclusion to their loneliness and accept this as the life their willing to live. When you subjugate yourself to this type of behavior you have to understand you have a problem and that you need to control it before it controls you. To control it you have to make changes even in the smallest ways like going to watch a movie without your phone or going for a jog without your music.
