2022: Entertainment

2022. I remember when my sister said it’s…2020 TWO. Like the sequel. Almost, but definitely not at all.

I recounted the most impactful entertainment pieces for me in 2014. Then I did it again for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.

Movies I Saw

Still hesitant to go to a theater, BUT I saw THINGS. Even if it’s later on streaming

  • NOPE
  • Everything Everywhere All At Once
  • Bodies Bodies Bodies
  • Prey
  • Blue Island (only because it’s about Hong Kong)

TV Shows I Watched

  • Euphoria
  • Succession
  • The Bear
  • The Rehearsal
  • Severance

Books I Read

  • Dept. of Speculation
  • Cat Person and Other Stories
  • Friday Black
  • Dictee (only because it’s like I discovered so many decades later)
  • The School for Good Mothers

Ways to Pass the Time

  • Setting writing challenges for myself even though it shouldn’t matter
  • Browsing recipes on NYT recipe app and dreaming about what to make next with what I have
  • Cleaning???
  • Going down a rabbit hole on a movie or tv show, which actually is soothing
  • Thinking of ways to keep up with the Joneses like buying a house


This category, I have to admit, doesn’t amuse me as much as it used to, because sometimes the technology just sucks and doesn’t get to the point of actual need.

  • BeReal (after quitting IG, I wanted to see what all the young people do and this was that, but I don’t really want to get that deep)
  • AI-generated work, but I still have yet to do it on my own photos as not to skirt the ethical line of crediting real artists
  • ADPList, for better or worse
  • Teams (at least for the ONLY good thing like chat actually stays!)
  • Rediscovering how to use Miro/Mural in a way that I didn’t think to do previously
