Social vs. Media

Social; (adj., sociology) Communal. Media (noun) Communication media.

When these two terms come together, we can obverse a love in a cottage, a new sub culture would be born named ‘social media’, and the statement “Medium is the message” by Marshall McLuhan proves itself.

One, two, three, jump out!

My father is an ex-parachute instructor; he had jumped with parachute so many times in his youth. He always said to me, “Whenever you become a young man, I’ll support you to jump with parachute.” And I always said that “When I turn 17, I’ll jump”, “When I turn 18, I’ll jump”, “When I turn 19, I’ll jump.” At last I decided to jump on the day I’d be turning 20 and that would happen while I’m in the air on my exact birth hour. How was it? Incredible!

Human being is a two-faced "creature"

Sezen Aksu, Turkish famous songwriter and composer, expresses her opinion about human on the song that she wrote “Kibir (Arrogance)” with the following sentence; “Human is strange, what a rough. Gosh! He is both a masterpiece and a primitive.” It’s such a sentence that depicts the two-facedness of human, who can also be an incredible being, and also a primitive living. In fact we, as a human, prove this fact everyday.
