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!

Monthly Look Ahead: February 2022

It’s very cold and there’s snow and I see friends virtually, so I haven’t left my house in weeks. That being said, welcome to February, where though it is too cold, I will be leaving my house and having fun.

  • Curling is starting again for me! In late December, COVID cases got bad in my province and everything shut down. Now things are opening up and curling is back in action right away, which I am very much looking forward to.
  • And speaking of curling, the Olympics start this month! The winter version is way better than the summer one, and it’s not just because of curling! I know there’s some controversy and politics surrounding these games, but I’m choosing to focus on the amazing athletes and cheering on Canada.

    I’m cheering for Canada even if their outfits are ugly as hell.
  • Options are limited because of the pandemic but there are loose Valentine’s Day plans in the works, and that should be fun no matter what.
  • I may see friends. I may participate in a curling bonspiel. Ontario is and continues to be kind of a mess, so we’ll see.
  • I know it’s a bit of a joke to add this after I posted a few weeks ago about not reading books too much anymore, but apparently, there’s a sequel to a book I read and enjoyed years ago out this month. The book is called In The Serpent’s Wake, and it’s a sequel to Tess Of The Road, which is a spinoff of a duology I loved, Seraphina and Shadow Scale. Will I read or reread any of these books this month? Very unlikely. But soon I hope to get into them all again, and I’m glad that this new book coming out this month is still making me excited to read a little.

Not a jam-packed month, but it is what it is. Safety is number one. What are your plans this month?

That’s all for now!

Monthly Look Ahead: January 2022

Wow, here we are with 2022 upon us! There’s a joke going around that it’s like “2020 too” but I don’t think it can be as bad as 2020. All things considered, 2021 was a good year for me, and I am entering 2022 with optimism.

The new year is a perfect time to jump into doing Monthly Look Aheads on your own blog! You get 12 fairly easy posts a year! And I’ve even made a new graphic, so feel free to use it if you want!

  • This Is Us returns for its last season, and I am bracing myself for pain as this show has never shied away from emotional gut punches. My old roommate and I watch this together and I’m excited to keep up that tradition with her. I have faith that it’ll be a satisfying last season.
  • There few shows out this month I have my eye on but am not fully committed to: Peacemaker (The Suidice Squad spinoff show), Naomi (bc stupid CW superhero shows have me in a chokehold), American Auto (it’s made by the creator of Superstore, and I do miss that show), Abbott Elementary (school comedies are rare), and How I Met Your Father (will it live up to the legacy of HIMYM?)
  • I don’t really like Jerod Leto, but if Morbius is part of the MCU (since that may be MCU Vulture in the trailers), I’ll probably see it. I just hope it’s not too creepy and gross.

There were supposed to be a few other things on this list like seeing friends and a curling bonspiel, but with COVID getting bad again, it’s very unlikely they’ll happen. My whole family has had our booster shots, but case numbers here in Ontario are pretty gross.

That being said, I hope your 2022 starts off a good foot and I hope this year is everything you want it to be and more.

That’s all for now!

P.S. Prepare your bodies for my next post: the much-anticipated yearly sneeze count!
