“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately” – Thoreau
When I moved to Eugene, it was with the idea that I would be starting over again. To start over, I wanted to apply some lessons learned I picked up from previous adventures. One of them is that I avoid the news. People that know me will tell you that I’m very anti-current events. I hate reading the newspaper and I positively despise the 24-hour news cycle. However, I’m on Facebook and I hear what other people say. It’s times like these that I’m very glad I don’t keep up with current events. What I *have* been working on is as follows:
- I posted stuff to Instagram
- I talked to people on Twitter
- I talked to people on Reddit
- I said a bunch of stuff people liked on Imgur
Right now it’s a beautiful fall morning and I’m going to take a walk by myself in some woods. I heartily recommend you do the same.
