bored or unimpressed by things from having seen or experienced them too often.
While at a circus recently, I became a little bit fidgety during an acrobatic act. Halfway through, I caught myself thinking: "Yeah this is OK, but I've seen a lot better on YouTube." Granted, this wasn't the Cirque du Soleil, but I felt a pang of shock at my thinking. When did I become so blasé? There I was, watching something that I not only couldn't do, but something I could never hope to do, and all I could think was: "M'eh. I've seen better online." This worries me. What else have I become so blasé toward? It was the first time that I really thought about this age of information and social media and its effects on me. Perhaps I am being desensitised, but not just to the typical targets such as violence or profanity. Far more troubling, perhaps I'm being desensitised to the human experience itself.
