May is a tough month for me with respect to my mental and emotional health (anniversaries for yucky things), so rather than indulge in a lot of new and fresh content, I spent most of these last few weeks watching old, comforting films and TV favourites. A lot of them are cheesy, but I needed the laughter and the nostalgia that watching these corny things fill me with.
I have been watching more and more stuff with each passing month. In many ways, this is quite excellent because it means that I’m definitely getting my money’s worth out of all the bloody streaming services I’m subscribed to. On the other hand, it further highlights my excessive lack of having a life. But when you’re anti-social, agoraphobic and stuck inside due to a global pandemic, what is a human to do? I sure as hell ain’t complaining, that’s for sure!
I watched thirteen films and about eight seasons of TV shows, most of which while I was doing other things like Uni studies and blog work. I prefer to multitask as it helps my brain focus the best. There’s a good mixture of dramas and suspense titles in the mix here and I would even recommend the vast majority of the media I consumed; another indicator of a fun cinema-fuelled month.
February was definitely a month of films for me. I ended up watching about fifteen of them! This surprises me a little bit because my ADHD tends to make it impossible for me to sit through anything longer than an hour. Because of that, TV shows and anime are the best forms of entertainment for my consumption (aside from video games, of course). So, when I sat down and went through the list of all the stuff I watched last month, I was coloured with astonishment and a mild feeling of being impressed with myself.
Recently, I started keeping track of the TV serials and films that I have been watching. Since my watchlists across all my streaming platforms have grown into a digital version of Plant 42, I figured that by keeping track of what I consume, I can trim these lists down. Plus, it’s also a great way of creating a reference of what I enjoyed and what I didn’t. I’m not sure if any of y’all would be interested in my entertainment indulgences, but I figured I could share it here and see how it fares.
