so for a while now, since fall of 2008, i’ve tried to stay away from viewing the news. and when i say news, i mean more financial news (i’m a nyu stern grad, what can i say? i’ve been bred to only read financial news) than anything. you know, it was depressing to hear how our economy’s shit and it’s only going to get worse. there was no good news. the news was how the economy was still as bad as it was the day before. that’s not news. tell me something i don’t know. news is if by some chance, a politician andor corporation did something right. or if our economy’s actually getting better.

so i’ve boycotted it for a while. but i still need to be somewhat caught up in what’s going on in the world. so i frequent cnn.com a lot when i need a break from what i’m doing at work or whatev. read a quick article or two. but i feel like i have to boycott news altogether. is it me or has there been A LOT of homicides, suicides, etc. today, there were reports that three cops died in pittsburgh. some guy shot two in the head. and recently, there was a guy in binghamton who killed 13 people and then killed himself. the saddest news is when people kill their family members. today, there was a story about a guy who found his wife with another guy. after an argument, he killed his 5 children and then killed himself. there was a guy who killed his 5 children, wife and himself after he and his wife found out they were being fired from work. there was another guy who decapitated his baby sister in front of a cop. and it goes on and on. it’s depressing as shit. 

i’m not sure if it’s because of the state of the economy? everyone’s on edge more? i know most aren’t probably economy related. but damn. wtf. i wish there were some really uplifting stories. to give us and the world some hope about our future. and i know these stories have to be reported. we have to learn from these tragedies. but it’s just too much sometimes. so until i hear more uplifting stories, i’m boycotting news in general. well, try to at least.

It’s that time of the year folks.  The barren trees are being adorned with pretty flowers and of course, all familiar, “The Peeps” are all coming out to play for Easter.  Just saw them at the local grocery store and i was soooo tempted to buy them.  I don’t even like them.  But it’s a nostalgic enough for me to spend money on it!   It made me wonder if I was the only one who were so fond of them just for the sake of being fond of them…..
