So, we’re already a few days into the new year. I hope 2013 is treating you all well so far! As you may have guessed by the monthly wrap-ups throughout the past year, I really love tracking the stats of my viewing, so I’ve decided to compile an ULTIMATE wrap-up of all of my viewing for the entire year. It will be a major feat … Continue reading 2012 in review: a final wrap-up!
New to me in December: 39 Re-watches in December: 20 Total for the month: 59 (Approx 1.9 films per day) I believe this has been my highest month of re-watches in 2012.

New to me in September: 30 Re-watches in September: 12 Total watched in September: 42 Total watched in 2012 so far: 472 Surprisingly, my viewing didn’t slow down much this month, despite the start of the new semester.

A few of the films are accounted for … Continue reading Films in 2012: September (+ a few bonus rambles)
I can’t believe it’s already September! This year has absolutely flown past me. School starts up again next week, and since I’m taking five upper-level classes, my number of monthly viewings will probably decrease quite a bit.
