I watch many different television shows, having a Netflix and all so it is not a surprise that I can get some of my personality from the shows I watch. I watch many shows from The Office, Parks and Recreation, That 70’s Show, Portlandia, Friends, and so much more. I normally watch the comedic type of shows as listed, but on occasion I will watch things like Law and Order SVU, Criminal Minds, How to Get Away with Murder, The Fosters, but just for the drama. I believe these shows can reflect on who I am. The comedic shows I listed first is shows I go back to, to watch again and again. People normally see me as the more positive type of person but also tend to be awkward and closed off like many of the characters in the shows. I can place myself as a character in many of the shows I watch. I watch the more dramatic shows when I need a boost of it, although not often I do go back to it.

I don’t tend to go onto many websites unless you include iLearn as one but if you count it, I definitely go on many different types of media apps on my phone. Such as Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Messenger (Facebook’s messaging app). I do believe these types of media can influence how we see ourselves since we can compare ourselves to anyone else on media. It can be good or bad depending on how you view  it. You can find people going through odd diets and question if you should go on it too, but also see that it can be super ridiculous by the way the person views it. Although sometimes bad influence, media can still be positive to reach out for movements like #metoo, daca, and black lives matter. It can make a person more active in their community and see themselves in a more positive light.

My genre in music is not too specific, I am not very particular with music. I like to explore new music but at the same time stick with what I know. So I guess this can reflect on me by showing that I am more of an adventurous but still like to have what is familiar with me.
