Yoren  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: How do I increase my attention span?

I've been following news websites and blog-ish type places (like reddit) for about 2 years now. I feel invested in political subjects, but I only ever read headlines or watched videos. A few months ago I decided that just reading sensationalist headlines wasn't giving me a proper view of things, so I vowed to start reading entire articles. My main issue is that I'm just so bored doing so. The articles are usually summed up nicely by the title anyways.

    Can you read an entire article on something you enjoy learning about? If so, you have the attention span -- you just need to work on translating it to subjects that don't immediately grab you.

That brings up a good point, I can read entire books and I often listen to music for hours on end.

I want to be informed on politics and world news, but I guess that I don't like reading about them haha.

Good on you for not sharing it.

I used to make fun of people in middle school; looking back on it just fills me with regret though. It took someone I mocked to start crying before I even realized how mean I was being. I do try to be a better person on the outside, but I can't help but having cruel thoughts every now and again.
