Keeping up with Current Events–FAST

Sweater: Express (old) // Jeans: Express // Earrings: Baublebar // Ring: vintage

Before medical school, residency, and having a baby it was easy to keep up on current events. My evenings were leisurely spent reading Time magazine or clicking through articles on CNN.com, but these days reading does not fit in to my busy schedule. My knowledge of what’s happening in the world had pretty much disappeared until I discovered The Skimm, a newsletter written by 2 NBC producers that summarizes the big world event news articles in to brief paragraphs compiled into a short newsletter that shows up in my inbox Monday through Friday. It has been the perfect way for me to quickly read national and international news on daily basis.

      You’ll love it! I seriously can read it in 5 minutes each morning and feel caught up on current events, so I don’t look out of it when we go out with better read friends

    I actually rarely keep up with the news as it usually just worries me and upsets me, so I purposely try to avoid it unless I need to know! I love your hair here though!

      I’ve had similar thoughts about local news, but so far THE SKIMM hasn’t caused me to feel down about the world. The authors apply a girly up-beat tone to the newletter

      I tend to be too! This has seriously helped….now when we go to dinner with friends that are better versed in world events I don’t feel totally out of the conversation all night long

    I feel you! I’m in medical school now and have, sadly, very little idea whats going on in the world–or even in my own backyard (local news is the first I start to skip when things get busy)! This is a great idea, I should suscribe!

      When I was in med school I seriously never read any news ever. The last thing I wanted to do was read after studying all day. Good luck with school and hang in there…..
