This month, I want to write about something different. I have been writing about current events around the world, but I thought that for a change, I would write about reading current events.
I love reading current events, and yes, I am a teen. Some might think I am a weirdo for checking out the latest news instead of playing computer games or watching TV.
That’s why I am here with a mission to change your perspective about reading current events.
Reading current events can be fun. When I say reading current events, I don’t mean poring over the papers.
With the advent of technology, many newspaper companies have their news online. In fact, online news is better since there’s always the latest.
Reading current events also does not mean going through a report of a robbery at a bank. No, current events is a much wider scope than that.
An example is the entertainment news. What goes on in the entertainment industry is also a part of current events!
For those who are sports fanatics, the sports news is also part of the current events scope.
I can go on and on about how interesting current events can be but no matter what I can say, ultimately you have to try it to know for yourself.
So here’s the challenge: read a piece of current events every day. Try it for six weeks and I can guarantee you that you will start loving current events.
But here’s the catch, you can’t just read what you want to read. Here’s an example schedule:
Sunday: Pick your favorite section
Why am I encouraging reading the current events? For the very same reason why I want to be aware of what’s going on around me.
Right now, knowing the current events might not seem to be such a necessity, but current events that are happening today can either directly or indirectly affect our lives.
So do you want to be more informed in this year? It’s your choice.
