    • Amanda,

      I like how you touched on how we need to try our best to avoid only reaching out and talking to people over social media once the pandemic is over. Misleading information is very common nowadays and once an individual views that site they believe everything it said is true, which can be bad. I agree it’s important to really rationalize the amount of media we put into our lives daily because it consumes the majority of our lives.

  • Lydia,
    Something that stood out to me in your blog post was when you stated that “ It’s better to embrace your illness than being ashamed of it, since it doesn’t identify your true self,” which I also agree with. With any mental illness, you should not feel like that is your only meaning in life. People it’s ADHD, depression, anxiety, and more…Read More

    I liked how you shed light onto this subject. Thought it may seem obvious to some, language is always evolving & ever changing.

    • Dear Amanda, I’m very interested in your post “Language in the media” because a lot of communication and who we use our language is not faced to face and much as it used to be, Now is by typing something whit your fingers and posting it in social media. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Language can also be used to inform others, both in a positive or negative manner about a multitude of subjects on many different platforms”. I think this is important because many people out there use language to affect others and not as much to help them or to inform other people.
      Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really like the way you put your ideas and beliefs in the text.
