How to Stay Informed Without Really Trying
“So, who can tell me what happened in the news today?”
I dreaded hearing that question every week in my international relations class during my freshman year.
Although twenty percent of my grade was participation, I stayed painfully quiet whenever current events were discussed.
Sure, I could read up on what was going on around the world, but with so many stories filling up my newsfeed, I could never figure out what was actually legitimate. Not to mention, my busy schedule made it easy to avoid the news.
That all changed when a sorority sister posted a link to subscribe to a morning newsletter on her Facebook page. I decided that I’d give the whole “reading the news” thing a try.
To my surprise, the morning newsletter, MorningScene, not only made my class discussions a breeze, but it became an enjoyable daily habit.
We all wake up and take a few moments to do the “morning scroll.” We check our Facebook, watch last night’s Snapchat stories and read our emails, desperately hoping our 8 a.m. lecture hall professor cancels class. The only thing missing from is an update on what’s happening around the world.
MorningScene is the answer. Every morning they send out an email newsletter that gives you everything you need to know to get your day started: world, local, business, sports, entertainment and science news.
Instead of bombarding you with lengthy articles, MorningScene is short, sweet and to the point. (It’s also pretty funny.) Can you handle two to three sentences per category? We think the answer is yes. Not only are you getting your daily dose of newsworthy knowledge, but we also keep you in the loop with what’s hot in Gainesville, including (but not limited to): concerts, eats and enough culture to keep you satisfied.
After months of reading MorningScene each and every weekday morning, I had the opportunity to join the MorningScene team and start gathering the news for each issue. I want others to experience the ease of staying informed and the awesome local intel, so subscribe below and make MorningScene part of your morning scroll.
