My biggest problem is that I can not stop myself from reading the comments sections of online articles. So even when it is a good story, I end up going through a negative experience. Social media isn't a problem because I catered my accounts that I never have to encounter ignorant fucks. But in the comments sections anything goes. You wouldn't believe some of the arguments that I have had on the most bland boring stories. Once, I there was an discussion about the legacy of MLK in the comments section of an article detailing Derrick Rose's knee surgery.
I stopped reading comments about a while ago but got lured back in with the Ray Rice incident because I felt that I to speak out against the fuckery.
As I get older, I find I need to get on social media less ands less. The fuckery gets a little much sometimes. Its good to disconnect and refresh sometimes.
I was just saying to myself today that i need a break from the news/social media. This footage of people getting gassed and the police brutality started getting to me. I need to recharge my batteries, take a break and then come back and resume telling people what's up.
