β™‘ πΌπ“ƒπ“‰π“‡π‘œπ’Ήπ“Šπ’Έπ“‰π’Ύπ‘œπ“ƒ β™‘

Hello everyone! (*・ω・)οΎ‰ We've all been there. For a brief moment, you have a mild interest in a thing. Perhaps you are wondering, "what is this thing?" So you decide to look it up, just long enough to get an idea of how it works, right? Wrong. 3 Wikipedia articles, 2 full-length documentaries, and about 5 hours later, you realize you have been obsessing over it for a large portion of your day. Congratulations! You have fallen down a rabbit hole.

In some cases, this can be detrimental, like when you forget to eat that snack you were planning on munching on or you have an essay to revise. Other times it can actually be quite interesting, even enjoyable. Who knows, you might learn something along the way. But how does one fall down a rabbit hole? It's simple, find an interesting topic and learn as much as you can about it. "But Effervescent-Daydream", you might be thinking, "what kind of interesting topics?" Well, dear internetter, I am here to save the day with my list of interesting rabbit holes to fall down, and even some helpful links and suggestions to get you started! Happy hole-falling!
