Pete’s 2016 Media Diary

Another year another media diary in the books.  My year was much busier than years past, so I watched less content than any year before.  It makes me a little sad how little content I consumed, but when your life gets busier, I guess that’s a good thing.  This year marked my beginning Improv at The Second City along with writing and directing.  2016 is widely considered one of the worst years in recent memory, and while on macro level, the world is falling apart, on a micro level, my life is ticking up.  My goals for 2017 on a movie level is to see more in theaters, and write many more reviews.  The future looks bright, even if the human future looks bleak.  Focus on what you love, and for me, that’s movies.  Cheers!

Closing Thoughts:

For the first time ever, 2016 was a year that I felt like I watched more television than movies.  Television has been telling amazing better and better stories, and there were some great shows this year.  This media diary also shows me that I need to go to the theater more in 2017.  All-in-all Arrival and Don’t Think Twice were two of my favorite movies I saw in the theaters.  I hope everyone had as good of a 2016 as the world would allow, and here’s to a hopeful and happy 2017!
