tbh I've changed that way in most of my life; I don't care particularly about hot new movies or games or whatever because honestly who gives a shit? I just try to stay abreast of things and filter out real inflection points. I think that's harder to do when you're younger and less aware of your place in history. Younger people also often have more time to spend online meticulously keeping up with the drama of the day. And I'm glad so many stay informed.
I guess it just boils down to like... there's so much energy out there, but I feel like it needs to be harnessed productively rather than just screaming into the void. Look for the inflection points and then strike. Otherwise just take care of you & yours and prepare yourself mentally.
(I guess it makes me feel old because hearing this would have pissed me off 10 years ago)
