    Social media has impacted my life in numerous ways. I can and do use a variety of social media apps that are easily accessible on my mobile smart phone, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat, and WhatsApp. These applications allow me to do many activities in my daily life that would be much harder or impossible to accomplish without them. Specifically, social media has impacted my social life and my life as a college student. It has impacted my social life by showing me the daily lives of my friends, family members, and favorite celebrities. In reverse, it keeps my friends and family members updated about my own life. It also helps me stay in contact with others in creative and inexpensive ways. I go on Instagram and Facebook daily and like quotes from my favorite movies, facts from different historical and nature exhibits, photos of interesting places, videos of funny pets, posts of actors from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.LD., pictures of my friends from high school and college, and images of my family members. For example, I like to see pictures of my sister playing tennis and of my dog and cats at home. I also like to see what is going on in the world of my favorite actors, actresses, television, and movie series, and seeing clips from my favorite episodes and films.

Because I really did not know the requirements and duties of a resident assistant, I started to look into it and realized that my personality really did fit with this job. In my opinion though, being a resident assistant would not even be seen as a job because I would enjoy it very much. During the end of September, I approached my resident assistant with all of my questions about trying to get this position. She…
