THIS MONTH’S MEDIA: November 2022

What I watched, listened to, read, & played in November 2022!

November was an amazing month in a lot of ways & a traumatic month in other ways (but I’m okay now!). Due to the latter part of that, I think I spent a lot of time just listening to my playlists on shuffle instead of listening to podcasts or albums (I honestly don’t remember lol) so I ended up listening to much less of either of those things than usual. I did however end up watching more episodes of shows than I usually do, & enjoyed many shows about science & animals!

I also discovered my love for the Oceans trilogy of heist films & ended up watching all the films in the series this month (upon which I realized I’d actually seen the second one before, with no context from the first film so it didn’t make much sense like a decade ago when I watched it). I also played some board games for once, & rediscovered my love for Tetris-type games by playing Pentix Nova after the traumatic event because I’ve heard Tetris helps your brain process stressful things better.

THIS MONTH’S MEDIA: August 2022

What I watched, listened to, read, & played in August 2022!

In August, my ability to concentrate was worse than normal, so even while commuting to work I had trouble focusing on podcasts & therefore didn’t listen to many, aside from the two shows my brain decided to hyperfixate on haha. Mostly I just listened to music on shuffle or albums I’ve already heard when I wanted to listen to something.

When my brain decides it’s interested in something, that’s all it cares about listening to, hence the large number of Sawbones & Noble Blood episodes on this list. I must note that my hyperfixation on the Jeeves & Wooster show is in full swing, so I didn’t watch any movies but did watch quite a few episodes of that show because it was the only thing my brain wanted to watch tbh.

This Month’s Media: January 2022

What I watched, listened to, read, & played in January 2022!

I finally got my phone storage situation figured out so I now have access to Spotify again! This meant I was able to not only listen to podcasts again, but also I was able to download Hulu so I could watch more shows & movies as well! I streamed again for the first time in nearly a year as well (which also meant playing a video game for the first time in MONTHS heh ^^; ) Also, I am once more extremely interested in history podcasts & shows haha. It was a weird month for me filled with a lot of stress at times, so I didn’t always take time to take care of myself & consume media.
