THIS MONTH’S MEDIA: May 2022

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

May was a really good month for me! I did not watch a lot of films or shows, but I DID listen to a lot of The Magnus Archive which I CONTINUE to adore, & also I started listening to the Rusty Quill Gaming podcast which I ALSO adore. Additionally, I started getting into Brian David Gilbert’s content & discovered he makes music & I love both of his albums so very much, his content in general is just so fantastic!

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.

This Month’s Media: NOVEMBER 2021

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! I’m really happy with the selection of media I’ve consumed this month tbh!

  2. I played a TTRPG (Call of Cthulhu, to be specific~) on stream for the first time with some friends on October 31 but forgot to include it in that month’s list, so once that’s uploaded to YouTube I’ll be posting the link here! I played a butcher named Etienne Olivier!
  3. I also played D&D on a stream for the first time as part of a game for Wesslhausen’s “TERF Wars” week of charity streams for Trans Week of Awareness! I played a half-elf rogue butler named Albert “Bertie” Wilson in a game inspired by Wacky Races & DM’d by Wesslhausen!
  4. In another D&D stream for the same cause, I played a an epic 18th level half-elf fighter named Quigley Barrows in a oneshot DM’d by Asynthetic20!

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