The News

This post is kind of a random post I don't usually post about things like this but lately for some reason I've been getting up 10 minutes earlier than usual. I don't know why I'm a such a strange child. Anyways every morning when I come down stairs my mom is watching the news. I've never really been the type of person that really watches the news. I usually hear important news from my mom or friends. But now that I've started watching the news I'm aware of how crappy the world is. Here are the things that were this morning:

Harvard student found dead

Toddler rides his bike through moving traffic

Unidentified man jumps off Niagara Falls

Dad puts boy in washing machine

Facebook stocks

Civil Wars in forgien countries(It was really sad to see how poorly people were treated in other couturiers like Africa and other poorer countries.

Some sort of sex scandal (I wasn't really paying attention to that one)

Oh  yes and course Political election updates since the election is so close (October or November)

These are the wonderful things I learned from watching the news for 20 minutes. What a great way to start off my day. Why does the news have to report on all the bad things in the world? I mean yes I get it I should be informed of all the crap going on the world. But why can't I wake in the morning and oh look a litter of puppies was born last night or a school comes together and plants baby trees in a forest that just had a fire. Why can't the news be happy? Why can't the news inspire people to do amazing things for people and except nothing in return? So far all I've been inspired to do is turn off the t.v. I don't care about some celebrity sex scandal or how bad the Facebook stock market is. I just don't understand why this is considered "breaking news". Oh yes people need to know about this right away. I just get so upset sometimes about stupid things that are made into way big of a deal.

So what do you think about what I had to say? Do you agree or disagree?

Well I think that's all I have to say. (I'm sure there will be more for me to say I just gotta study for end of the year tests.) Thank you for listening to me ramble on about The News.

Until next time.



  1. I totally agree. I always used to get annoyed that there was no happiness on the news; it just makes me feel depressed...
    The sad thing is that a lot of people (my father included) enjoy hearing about all these troubles -because they're just happy it isn't them or so they can recount stories all day I don't know...

  2. @Jessica My dad is the same way too.

  3. I like watching NBC Nightly News lol

  4. I agree! I mean, you have to know about the bad stuff, but why can't you hear about the good stuff too?

  5. @Lily Lol yea it's just not what I want to watch first thing in the morning.

    @Veela Cat Right?!?

  6. I just love this! wanna follow each others blog?:X
