While the calendar year isn't quite over, so my quarterly and annual wrap up will show up next year because more reading to be done. I thought I would list out some other great things that kept me entertained this year.
Phone games: I am still playing three hidden object games, and a dots game regularly.
Podcasts: I actually reduced my podcast subscriptions, as more phone time at work meant less podcast time. But several of the NPR podcasts, along with the Wanna Be podcast, and some of the Radiotopia group stayed in rotation. Also, I would be remiss not to mention Let's Go Steal a Podcast, which thanks to a new season is still going. Revisiting the show has been a blast, and the reboot is doing things that make me happy. So I guess that's also new TV that I watched.
Twitter: I had to reevaluate my social media, as you do, and there are times when I do lock myself out of twitter for an hour when it shifts to doomscrolling, but it remains the place I find out things like Jean and Jorts, so I thank it. Also, while my Twitter following is small enough that I don't get targeted often, I used Block Party App to help filter out some of the stuff that deserves less attention.
Livestreamed Theater: Play Per View, Filmed Live Musicals, and LA Theater Works are some resources I have used to find various theater things I could consume from the comfort of my home.TV: I watched very little new to me TV this year but enjoyed both "Kung Fu" and "Staged".
Knitting: Knitting has been a regular in my life for a while, but especially in a pandemic, being able to see visible progress on something is very needed.
Baking: Snacking Cakes has easily become my go to for so many treats, but also baked oatmeal, shortbread, butter mochi, and many other treats have provided some fun to the days.
