I’ve spent most of the weekend rotating between my bed and couch, hydrating and binge watching Downton Abbey while trying to shake the last of a gross little cold I’ve had.
Not the most exciting way to spend a weekend.
I thought that being sick would mean making more of a dent in my currently reading, but holding up a book while pumped full of cold medicine isn’t an easy feat.
So in place of reading I’ve been deep into a Downton Abbey binge and boy is this show taking me through the motions. The first three seasons were so bright and bad thing after bad thing has been happening ever since one of my favorite characters died (no spoilers!).
A period drama binge was a needed escape from some of the current news coverage. I am so proud of and inspired by teens all across the country making their voices heard and demanding action on gun control. But watching hateful people take advantage of their time on the airways to overlook grief and common sense to spew their illogical agendas was just too much.
There is nothing wrong with staying informed and keeping up with the news, but knowing when to turn it off is important, too.
