I cant take it anymore..
Im very "well read" when it comes to current events..
I get the newspaper delivered 7 days a week..
It take it into work with me and read it at lunch..
then read Sat and Sun editions at home..
Driving to and from work, I listen to a local news/talk radio station.
Then most days I usually watch the 6:00 local news and/or the 6:30 national news..
I know what is going on in the world every day!
lately..its just WAY too much constant constant constant bad news..
yes, I know the economy sucks..do I really need to hear about it ten thousand times a day every day for months on end?
then yesterday, yet MORE endless layoffs at Kodak announced..
my wife was laid off 3 years ago, she still hasnt found a job..just a few temp jobs.
If I lose my job we are royally screwed..both of us out of work, no health insurance, and even my "backup, temporary" job prospects, at 1/3 the salary, (Home depot and starbucks..I have worked at both before) are laying off thousands and closing stores..they wont be hiring either...there are literally NO job prospects for either of us..
So..ive had it with the news..I am going on an all-out news boycott for 2 weeks, maybe a month..if something REALLY big happens, im sure I will still hear about it...but other than that, I dont WANT to know what is happening in the world for awhile...because..why bother? why do I need to hear this news ten thousand times a day??
its just way too depressing..
so im dropping out for a few weeks..im going to bring in a book to work to read during lunch..
Let me know if China plans to invade..apart from that, I simply dont care any more..
