As a kid I wanted to be like my dad. Listened to his music, watched his shows.
In middle school, I thought I was misunderstood and full of angst. Consumed media that I thought made me badass.
In high school, I wanted to fit in. The Texts that influenced me changed from year to year and were different as I bounced around friend groups. Don't know what to focus on.
First few years of college were more of the same. Struggled to find identity and consumed same media as those around me.
When I became Writing and Linguistics Major, was able to connect better with Texts that I actually liked. Was able to get meaning and find identity through texts instead of just consuming what others around me were in to.
Have become comfortable with my identity, but am struggling to decide what aspects of my identity in the past and present have been influenced by texts. Also struggling to think of specific examples of what those texts might be.
