Awww. The simple pleasures in life. A fancy cup of coffee and some good old fashion news. I am addicted to both. I remember when I was a kid, I hated watching anything news related. My mother would wake up bright and early and the only thing I can remember being on television in the morning, while I was getting ready for school was Good Morning America. Little did I know I was subtly being brainwashed into the world of news loving freaks. The funny thing about my news passion, is the fact that I very rarely watch any local news. This is because it always seemed to me that local news focused so much on crime in the area that I would be literally afraid to go to sleep at night. Yes, apparently I am a chicken. Given the type of events that happen nationwide and worldwide, this sentiment makes little sense to some degree. However, I find national news to be such a mixed bag of rocks and gems that the stories tend to pin down my interest in one spot for more than 5 minutes.
Anyway, my blog really would not reflect a big part of who I am without including some news. So, I am going to post current stories I come across that spark my interest to a large degree, or simply stand out for me on a personal level. Sit down and have a cup of coffee with me and enjoy! Thanks for stopping by.
