The media blackout along with the entire unit, truly helped me open my eyes and realize how messed up society is today, and how it is only getting worse. I no longer use my phone 90% of the time when I am sitting home “bored,” I now go out with friends and family and truly connect to them. I don’t constantly feel the need to check Snapchat, I still haven’t turned my notifications back on, it has been almost a month. I am happier now that I don’t pay as much attention to these unrealistic views of women. Media was a very important part of my life, but now I know the truth behind it. It is all fake.
