    May Favourites

    Another month of lock down in the U.K. The novelty wore off long ago. I’m not watching many films, or reading as much as I thought I would, or developed a new hobby. I’m watching a lot of TV though. Here is what I liked on lock down in May. Overcooked 2 It was about time I found a new multiplayer game I liked on the PlayStation. Overcooked 2 is every bit as addictive as everyone says. If you’re hoping to unlock 4 stars for the story mode, then it’s definitely not a game for kids. I break a sweat trying to beat the time.

Initially I didn’t start taking the pill as a method of contraception. Like most teenagers, I went on it to manage my period.

    March Favourites

    So…March was something. Especially the last half, which was scary, confusing, anxiety-inducing, lonely, and most of all: different. It’s weird not being able to do 80% of the things you usually do. I want to keep in a routine as best I can, like sticking to these little monthly lists of mine. As anticipated, there’s a lot of shows, books, music, and other things that I enjoyed this month because there wasn’t really anything else to do with my free time while I’m social-distancing. Disney+ About bloody time! Disney+ finally hit the U.K. this month. At first I wasn’t sure about it due to already having other streaming services and…
