Inspired by Sophie's post I decided to do a little roundup of things I've done the year.
We purchased our house in November 2021 and it hadn't been decorated since 1971 so everything needed doing; most of this year has been spent getting all the rooms fixed up. In July, we found out my partner was pregnant (🎉) which is very exciting but also added an extra bit of stress to making sure the house was done by the end of this year. Things I learnt how to do:
In April we went to Bournemouth for a few days and saw Bowling for Soup on the last day.
Right before Christmas we went to Edinburgh to visit the Christmas market (which was a bit disappointing) but we did a tour of the Edinburgh Vaults, rubbed the nose of Greyfriar's Bobby, and visited some great book shops.
We saw a bunch of theatre shows this year as well:
I made a bunch of little plugins/webapps for Micro.blog and the Monzo Pot Image Generator hit over 40k images generated. I stopped using Twitter so I'm using a combination of Micro.blog and Mastodon - the latter is run by omg.lol. omg.lol is such a fun site and has a bunch of services, including a Mastodon instance. You can get it for $5 a year until tomorrow.
According to Letterboxd I've watched 103 movies this year. Of those, 12 of them came out this year. My favourites of those are:
I didn't watch all that much TV this year but the two stands outs were:
I read zero books this year which is embarrassing, I hope to change this next year. I did start Men Who Hate Women and hopefully will finish it soon.
