I really don’t want to watch or read the news anymore.
We’ve been in lockdown for a month now. Whilst it’s amazing how most of Sydney has rallied together by staying home, getting tested and getting vaccinated, it’s super upsetting hearing about the actions of a small, but vocal, percentage of individuals who refuse to believe that COVID is real.
Anyway, I don’t want to talk too much about it anymore, except that I need to make a concerted effort to not look up news sources. Doomscrolling is real and its effects are real.
Instead I need to… do all the things I used to do before the Internet came along.
At least I’ve read three books this past month… more than I’ve read since the start of the year. 😛
And that the Olympics are on.. I don’t think I’ve ever watched as many games in my life, but they’re a good break from all the news.
Also… this is our last weekend til D-Day! So that’s something to look forward to. Here’s crossing my fingers that everything goes well.
