I’ve been thinking a lot recently about why I like magazines. I mean, obviously, they’re usually pretty to look at, but there’s a lot of pretty things out there I’m not as drawn to (someone please explain to me what it is about Timothée Chalamet. I don’t get it).
So as I’ve been thinking about that, I’ve started to realize how much I love the idea of entertainment in general. And magazines are, usually, entertainment reading. IMO, leisure reading is wildly undervalued and under-appreciated. Honestly, what would we do without it? Especially now, when all news is bad news. What’s the harm in reading up on some celebrities every know and then? We need a break from the doom and gloom if we can get one, and magazines are, I think, my favorite kind. At least in written form.
Magazines are definitely not everyone’s thing, though. But we all have some kind of entertainment, and I want to know more about it. I love hearing about what amuses people.
To the five to twelve possible people reading this, I’d love to hear what entertains you. What random podcast do you listen to that you just can’t get other people into? Do you have a hobby of subscribing to quirky email newsletters? Do you keep yourself busy with fidget toys and board games? I feel like our choice of entertainment always reveals a lot about us. I mean, there must be a reason why comedy shows and movies are really the only ones I can tolerate (sorry, Sarah, I’ll just never be the Marvel Maniac you want me to be).
So, yeah. Let me know what your favorite way to pass the time is and maybe I’ll find a new front-runner … or not.
