Monthly Look Ahead: October 2022

Welcome to the spookiest month of the year and the start of the last quarter of 2022. Fall is here, and soon shall also be these things that I am looking excitedly forward to:

  • Curling is back! It’s always so fun to hit the ice again and see everyone after the summer break. This year I’m also helping out with one of the leagues’ communications, so that’ll be a fun challenge.
  • Halloween isn’t a holiday I particularly love, but a friend has a birthday on that day, so there’ll be a party I hope to attend. My boyfriend and I have a cute couple’s costume planned!
  • And on the day we plan to put together said cute couple’s costume, my boyfriend and I are going to a local Halloween/fall fair event with a lights show, so that should be fun.
  • After seeing trailers for literal years, Black Adam is finally coming to theaters on the 21st…unless DC/Warner throws another curve at us. I hope the wait is worth it.

So that’s my October. What’s going on in yours? Make your own MLA post and let me know!

That’s all for now!

Monthly Look Ahead: September 2022

As soon as I wrote the title for this post, I had ‘September’ by Earth, Wind & Fire stuck in my head. I hope it’s stuck in your head now too. And I also hope you have a good September. Some people love this month and some hate it, but I hope it’s pleasant nevertheless.

  • I never ended up going to the Exhibition last month (a big annual fair-like event in Toronto). The day we were planning to go was calling for rain and the tickets are good for whenever, so we played it safe, and I shall be there this month now. Fingers crossed for sunshine.
  • Though I have been to Florida before, I never went to Disney World, but that’s changing this month! I’m going with my boyfriend’s family, and I’m excited to shift into vacation mode and go to what is supposedly the most magical place on earth.
  • There’s a Canadian version of the game show Family Feud that films in Toronto, and I saw online that tickets to be in the audience are free and available, so I snagged some. It might be a long and boring day quietly watching the filming and laughing when we’re told to, but I’ve never been to something like that, and I like the show and the host, so I figured I’d go.

  • Fall TV is back! AKA Abbott Elementary is back on the 21st, and I’m looking forward to it.

This will probably be my last month wearing t-shirts and shorts for a while. That’s what a Canadian September looks like. What’s on tap for you?

That’s all for now.

Monthly Look Ahead: June 2022

June! Summer! I’m looking forward to this month, and I hope you are too. June is my birthday month, so I always look forward to it a bit more than any other month. Not that I care about my birthday too much, because I really don’t, but I’m not able to shake that childlike anticipation I feel when June approaches.

  • As I said, my birthday is in June, and for the first time in many years, I am having a very small party for myself. Just a few friends and some board games and some cupcakes. I’m excited.
  • The next Marvel show on Disney+, Ms Marvel, is out on the 8th. I don’t know anything about the character, and I’m a little hesitant about it being about teenagers because sometimes it’s pretty cringy, but early reviews seem positive.

  • Three shows that have new seasons out this month are Umbrella Academy, The Boys, and Only Murders In The Building. None of these are shows I’m dying to see more of, but I enjoy them enough to keep watching.

Honestly, this June doesn’t seem to be jam-packed with activities, but that’s fine. At the time of writing this post, I am on vacation (first one in a long time) so I kind of feel like I’m getting my fill of excitement now, so a quieter June is okay.

Have a good June, y’all!

Monthly Look Ahead: May 2022

It’s May, which is just wild because it does not feel like we’re almost halfway through this year. But here we are, and I think it’s going to be a good month. I’m gonna get a haircut and also do all of the following:

  • This month, I am going on my first vacation in about four years. I can’t wait. It’s nothing extreme, I’m not leaving the country, but I’m very much looking forward to using my vacation days for an actual vacation where I can see different things and not be in the house!
  • Dr. Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness comes out on the 6th. I’m excited because it’s an MCU movie that’s been building for a while, but I am expecting to be annoyed with how they handle the multiverse. If No Way Home and Avengers Endgame are any indication, it’ll be a good movie but will probably have some plot holes that I’ll just have to die mad about.

  • My boyfriend and I are planning a Mario Kart day because between the two of us, we have seven editions of Mario Kart and we thought it’d be fun to play them all back to back in one day. Because we can. Will we be sick of Mario Kart by the end? Maybe. Will we have fun? Yep.
  • Curling is over, but the club is not done with events. There’s a local scavenger hunt thing that’s being held, which sounds fun. They did it a couple years ago, and I didn’t participate (I was unemployed and did my best to not do things that cost money lol) but I heard it was very fun, so I’m looking forward to it this year.
  • There’s apparently a reboot of (in my opinion) one of the best ever game shows coming this month on the 23rd: Don’t Forget The Lyrics. I don’t even watch TV live much anymore but I may have to set aside some time to watch this. I remember watching reruns as a tween and really enjoying it. I think I’m pretty good at it too (from my couch).

  • Last spring I got really into Harry Styles’ music for a few weeks, and this month he’s got a new album coming out. I’m not edge-of-my-seat excited, but I’m looking forward to hearing it because I do think he’s talented and I enjoyed his past two albums.
  • On May 13th on PBS, a proshot of the musical Anything Goes will air! I did actually see this proshot in a movie theater at the end of March very last minute (hence why it was not on March’s MLA), and my mother and I really enjoyed it and will probably watch it again. There are a few really great tap dances, and I love when musicals have big dance numbers.
    Anything Goes.
  • This Is Us ends this month. I’ve really loved this show and I’ve really loved that my old university roommate and I still watch it together even though we graduated years ago. The show is known to induce tears, and goodness knows finales always get me good, so I’m expecting a big, teary. but hopefully happy ending.

I’m looking forward to May. It’s going to be another busy month but busy with fun things! What’s your May going to consist of?

And since it’s May, as is tradition, here is my favourite May. My friends and I are doing a very slow Agents Of SHIELD rewatch and man, do I miss her and this show.

That’s all for now!

Monthly Look Ahead: March 2022

Hopefully we’re past the depths of winter and March can be a warmer month (I say as if I go outside often). This month, it’s rumored that COVID restrictions will continue to really loosen again, so more last-minute plans could arise.

  • First up is the new Batman movie. It looks like a really different take on the character we’ve seen so many times. I’m not too attached to the character so I’m just there to be entertained…and to eat movie theater popcorn because I got tickets that included food and I’m very excited for that.
  • On the same day I see The Batman, I am also going snow tubing, which I have never done before. I’ve gone sledding just at local hilly areas, but tubing will be at a real establishment where you don’t have to walk back up the hill yourself!
  • Way back in 2020, there was an Amazon show called Upload that I watched in one day, and now the second season is coming out. I mostly enjoyed Upload back then but we’ll see if the two year gap lessens any further enjoyment when it comes out.
  • It’s been a minute since we’ve had new Marvel content (aka like two months), but at the end of the month, Moon Knight is coming out! I know very little about the character, but the trailer seemed interesting.

  • I know the Olympics were just on but I already miss watching curling, so it’s a good thing that the Brier (aka the Men’s tournament in Canada) starts on the 4th.
  • I’m seeing some friends this month for a day of pizza and board games. We’d been trying to hang out for months but COVID made it hard, so it’ll be great to finally make it happen!

So that’s my March! I feel like it’s gonna be a good month, and I hope it is for you too. What are you looking forward to? Make a post and let me know!

That’s all for now!
