Lisa’s Week In Review: 2/1/21 — 2/7/21


What a long week!

Don’t get me wrong, it was a good week.  As far as this site is concerned, I got a lot done.  I’m most proud of the fact that I wrote about my 30 favorite films of 2020.  I’m very happy about how that post worked out and I’m also proud of myself for watching enough good movies that it was actually very easy to come up with a credible list of 30.  I’m proud of myself!  Wait — did I already say that?  See, that’s how tired I am.  I’m repeating myself!

Speaking of being tired, I was going to write about how I deal with anxiety but, to be honest, anxiety will still be a thing a few weeks from now and hopefully, I won’t be exhausted while putting the finishing touches on my week in review.  So, writing about anxiety can wait.

(Actually, the main way I deal with anxiety — and you’re going to think I’m lying but I’m not — is by putting on an old episode of Degrassi in the background.  It calms me down.  Maybe it’s because I’ve seen every episode so many times that I know exactly what’s coming.  Part of the comfort of rewatching something is knowing that, no matter what might happen in the world, those old episodes are always going to be the same.  It doesn’t have to be Degrassi.  It could be music.  It could be a beloved movie.  It could be someone chanting from the Necronomicon.  The familiar can be very helpful.)

For now, I just want to get some rest.  And I want to let you know what I watched, read, and listened to last week!
