What This Is

Inspired by Jen Myers:

it’s not just about list making and it’s not about reducing art to a number consumed. I suppose if either of those things are things you’re into, you can make it about that. But, for me, logging what I take in serves more purposes. It makes me think more deliberately about what I’m taking in. It makes me want to be well-rounded in what I choose to take in. And it reminds me that taking in art makes me happier. When I elevate it to a documented priority, I end up happier. Which is a valid enough of an output for me.

Key: 📚 = books read, 📽 = movies seen, 🎵 = albums bought, 🎤 = concerts attended, 📺 = TV series watched
