FOMO—fear of missing out—is stupid, because what should matter is what’s right in front of us, right now, so we can enjoy that thing. But in our information-dense, 24/7 world, it sometimes feels unavoidable, that sinking feeling that we should be watching, or reading, or doing something else.
So here’s a periodic reminder about ways to connect with reality blurred, so you can relax and not worry about missing a story if you haven’t had an opportunity to check the site every 90 seconds, which I totally understand.
The best way to do that:
Subscribe to Reality in Focus, the newsletter I send every Friday. It’s free, and it covers everything I’ve written from the past week and more. Plus occasional GIFs.
Other things you can do:
- Follow me on the Facemonster and the Twithole, as I’ve sometimes come to think of them as they demand more and more of my attention.
- Tell me to write about, such as a show you’re already watching and love and want more people to see. That’s one perk of becoming a patron, where you’ll have get access to behind-the-scenes content, and help influence some of what I write about here. You’ll also help keep reality blurred alive, and have my full gratitude. Learn more.
I hope you have a wonderful Friday. Help make it a great day by starting—or ending—it with a few minutes of watching Icelandic kittens play. They’re on four, 24/7 live feeds.
It’s wonderfully relaxing, even if you’re a dog person.
