January and February were all about streaming and watching comfort films for me. Emotionally and mentally I was completely tapped out, particularly with respect to dealing with some tough friendship tribulations. Reading and watching anime were out of the question for me because I just didn’t have the capacity to focus on those two favourites. But you know, that streaming stuff was a welcome reprieve in the midst of the chaos otherwise.
December was a pretty average watching month for me. I spent most of it binging a TV show I wasn’t expecting to get so caught up in but did. I also spent some of it catching up on Scooby-Doo shtuff I haven’t seen yet, which is a project I began way back in October. While there weren’t any super mind-blowing content consumed, I’m still happy with what I did get to indulge
November was a month of comfort. While I saw a shite ton of films and TV serials, most of them were re-visits of things. The newer things I checked out were TV shows that my cousin has been shouting at me to try for all of 2021, and I’m surprised I liked two specific titles…
October was a decent month of watching fun things. I was able to see a nice chunk of scary and horror film titles, more than a few Scooby-Doo films, and some interesting TV shows that I shall be continuing with in November, if it didn’t wrap-up already
September wasn’t a very exciting month for me in terms of streaming. A couple films were re-watches for me as I put them on in the background while I studied. I find that having dialogue or a story to concentrate on in the background actually helps my brain retain more information
Now that September is almost over, I can finally share my July & August TV and film wrap-up (oops, for being über late!). Since July and August were the last two months before my Uni journey began, I took supreme advantage of the free time and watched as much stuff on my various watchlists as I possibly could! It was mostly a couple months of horror films
June was all about films. I didn’t watch a lot of television serials because I didn’t have time to really watch chunks of episodes at a time, which is how I typically like to consume serials (if my ADHD allows). So, when I did find myself with a couple hours of free-time, I just went with whatever films sounded good in the moment. As such, the list of seen titles is pretty large.
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.
