I have not watch the news in years. It used to be part of my daily routine but now, not so much. I remember watching a news story with my daughter. The story was speaking of a little girl that was found dead after wandering off. My daughter could not sleep for weeks. I decided that this was no good for my morning or the rest of my day and so I rarely turn the T.V on at all in the morning unless it is for my kids as they get ready for school.
I am however, on Facebook every day. I know, I know it is a terrible habit that keeps me from getting anything done but I am nosy and I love to laugh as well as make others laugh. Memes are my favorite thing right now. However, with the recent stream of events between Mike Brown, the Confederate, Donald Trump and most recently Sandra Bland. I am more sick of Facebook than the actual news. I can scroll down my feed and see nothing but updates on stories every. damn. minute. UGH!! everyone wants to be the first to post what is going on in the world. The there are the constant police brutality videos. This does to me what the movie Rosewood does….make me mad. Why do I want to be constantly mad?? Why do I need to see something that has been going on for years long before camera phones??
Now don’t get me wrong I know being informed is important but my goodness when there is nothing you can do about it and all it does it make you mad, why feed that anger. Constantly being inundated with the updates about it. Now what?? What will you do? As my mother would say
I have truly started going on Instagram more because I can filter what I want to see a lot better. If you are feeling like me head on over to Instagram. Type in the hashtag #funny and let the games begin. In the words of Tupac, while you are there, FOLLOW ME!!!
