Happy May! It’s finally beginning to warm up here in Michigan, and as I type this, I’m sitting at a window overlooking a backyard full of birds. I love spring!

We’ve been in May for a day already, but before the month really gets going, it’s time to take a look back at what was watched in April.

I’m not sure anyone would have noticed without me calling myself out here, but no, your eyes aren’t fooling you — I haven’t used my Criterion Channel subscription yet. (At least my first month was free, I guess, but I feel foolish for letting it go to waste!) I have built myself a little queue there, and will undoubtedly begin putting it to good use in May.

The month in blogging:

I have no good explanation for my neverending string of terribly low viewing months (or the lack of posts around here). I can assure you I’ve not lost interest in film. Even though my schedule fluctuates and I technically still have several hours of free time each week, I’ve just been pretty low on energy/mental capacity for the past year or so, haha. Post-grad life is weird, especially when your ten-year plan derails and you end up working several part-time jobs instead of climbing the ladder in your dream career.

But, I digress. I hope to get my viewing and the blog back on a consistent schedule at some point soon! Until then, happy viewing and I hope May treats you well!
