The Monthly – January 2019

Hello everyone and welcome back to The Monthly! This is a series I started way back when and I wanted to get it started again. Basically I sum up my month in different categories – usually Life, Movies/TV, and Music.

The NEW categories are going to be Life, Fan Culture, and Gaming. Cause those are things I actually talk about and involve myself in every day. So without further ado lets move onto The Monthly!


Usually this is the section where I talk about big things happening in my life, but really, nothing has happened.

I’m trying to get myself in a healthier lifestyle, so I guess I can be proud to say that I can take my coffee now with no sugar from home when I make it myself. The creamers are unsweetened besides with no sugar, but they still have a flavor so that helps. Plus, the coffee is really good.

I’ve made a new friend and that’s pretty rad. We went to the beach and I got some pretty awesome shots of Fort Lauderdale and the water.


Hopefully they don’t screw up this time.

Fan Culture

One word: Spiderman.

The Far From Home trailer debuted and I, like many others, lost their damn minds. Peter Parker is adorable as per usual and Tom Holland is a god damn snack.

Aside from that, Supernatural’s 300th episode is creeping up around the corner and Doctor Who started production again!

In positive news, Black Panther made history being the first superhero film to be nominated for Best Picture in the Oscars. It also has 6 or 7 other nominations as well in the Ocsars. It’s for sure stiff competition and I’m anxious to see who comes out on top.


While I haven’t played anything new because nothing has come out that sparks my fancy, I have been uploading game play videos to my Youtube channel!

Right now I’m playing just Stardew Valley, but I’m hoping that eventually I will be able to do Sims again and eventually (once I get the proper stuff) some of my Switch games.

In Stardew, I made a new farm with a mod called the Immersive Farm Mod and I started a new file and it will be my Let’s Play series – I will be using my other save files for mod reviews and what not. Check out the first of the videos below and subscribe to my channel to see more!

Well, that’s about all I have for this monthly. Until next time (which will literally be here before I know it)!
