9/11/2012: Self-Imposed Blackout
I spend way too much time on the internet every year on 9/11. I end up on cnn.com watching a bunch of video, and reading a bunch of sad stuff. I spend too much time surfing in general, and run across way too many 9/11 posts. Then I turn on the TV, and end up watching 9/11 footage that I just can’t seem to turn off.
I’m not doing it this year.
I’m not going to turn on the news or surf news sites. I’m not going to flip through my dash, because I know it will be riddled with 9/11 posts. I’m not going to turn on the nightly news when I get home this evening.
Ignorance is bliss.
I’m going to ride out the end of my annual 9/11-induced depression without giving it anything to feed on.
