Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 8/16/21 — 8/22/21


This week …. it’s been difficult.  I’m usually avoid the 24-hour news channels.  I usually don’t watch CNN, MSNBC, or FOX because I find the relentless partisan focus of those networks to be difficult to take.  (CNN is the worst because at least MSNBC and FOX are honest enough to admit that they take one side over the other.  CNN’s still pretending that Chris Cuomo was hired for his skills as a journalist.)  But this week, I’ve been watching the news from Afghanistan.  It’s made me think about a lot of things.  Last weekend, I was locked out of my Twitter account for 18 hours and I acted like it was the end of the world.  Meanwhile, for many people in Afghanistan and other countries, they’re going to be lucky to even survive the week.  I’ve been able to get an education, a good job, and I live a life that I love and, far too often, I take all of that granted.

That said, I have to take a break from it all next week.  I’m not going to tune out the news, of course.  That’s never a real solution, no matter how nice it sounds.  But I can’t watch any more of the 24 hour news channels.  I just can’t.  The relentless doomsaying is just not healthy.

On the plus side, I watched a lot of movies this week.  And I’m going to watch a lot more this upcoming week.  I’ve got 9 days to watch 56 movies.  That’s like …. 7 movies a day.  Wow, that’s a lot.  Well, I better get started then!
