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.
