Ignorance is bliss

I used to be a humongous news junkie.  I loved to pour through the paper and to be up on current events, issues, etc.

For the last two years, that’s not so true anymore.  I think it has to do with me being unemployed.  The news, to be frank, is depressing.  I would obsess over credit card rates and people that died in an earthquake.  Riot victims and abused children.  Governmental ignorance paired with governmental interference.

Sure, I thought the adopt the puppy stories were cute, but honestly who could watch that all day?

I’m starting to miss reality though.  My life is still a wreck of sorts, but I’m so out of touch with what’s going on.  Maybe it was the Olympics coverage that I watched nonstop.  Maybe it was a passing glimpse at a newspaper.

Regardless, I need t be better informed again.
