THIS MONTH’S MEDIA: June 2022

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

In June, I finally watched Little Miss Sunshine for the first time, which I’ve heard a lot of good things about but never had a chance to watch. I didn’t get to listen to the most podcasts, but I did listen to the most albums I’ve ever listened to in one month since I’ve started keeping these lists! I continue to enjoy content by Brian David Gilbert & Rusty Quill, & I actually *gasp* played a video game this month– my first time ever playing Sims 4!

This Month’s Media: February 2022

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

February was also a stressful month as well, kind of like January, both for similar reasons & different reasons. I did my best to take care of myself though, & came back into a love of watching movies & shows as a coping mechanism & for self-care & relaxation…although I *did* do this in the most ADHD way possible, ending the month being halfway through literally EIGHT different movies but only having completed watching one movie all month haha. The same with TV shows — I don’t even know HOW many episodes I’m partway through, but it’s a LOT & I only completed watching a handful. I also read children’s books that gave me some nice nostalgia! And as always, I did indeed listen to a lot of history podcasts, because what kind of month would it be if I didn’t haha?

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.

What I watched, listened to, read, & played in December 2021!

December was a busy month for me, so I didn’t get to consume a lot of media. I also didn’t have the Spotify app on my phone for most of the month due to phone storage reasons, so I listened to FAR less podcasts than normal, but I read a few more books than average including some amazing graphic novels like Nimona, which I’ve never read before but ended up adoring! 🙂

What I watched, listened to, read, & played in November 2021!

Lol, look at me actually posting this list on the last day of the month for probably the first time ever! ^^; (not like a month late like usual haha) This month though I actually watched a lot of movies! I got into action movies again, & also finally watched some films I’d heard a lot about & which I’ve often seen referenced online, like Die Hard, The Fifth Element, & Office Space!
