I’ve taken about 4-5 days without really blogging much or reading too much of the news, and maybe about 2 days without tweeting THAT much, and that’s just about as unplugged as I can get (mind you, I was playing the hell out of Divinity: Original Sin 2). I’ve been doing other things, went to the dentist, stuff around the house.
So tonight I spent an hour doing a deep dive into the news, and holy fuck is everything a mess. I was wondering if when you don’t take a break, you get desensitized to the crazy, or if being in the thick of it makes you overreact and you think things are worse than they are.
I am afraid to report it’s the former. Literally every headline of every newspaper is so fucking crazy as to be unimaginable ten years ago. Hell, two years ago. Shit is fucking insane and not normal, and you need to tell yourself that every fucking day.
