2020: Year in Review
2020 has been, without a doubt, an absolute joke of a year. We had the Black Summer in Australia, the U.S Senate Acquited Donald J. Trump of his Impeachment Charges, the possibility of World War III, the merciless killing of George Floyd and the one that made the entire year that much worse, COVID-19. I think it’s safe to say for many people, 2020 has been an absolute mess and with that, I’ve found myself to have a lot more free time than I usually would, even working throughout the entire pandemic which I was very fortunate to do.
So, what have I been doing this year? Not a lot, to be honest.
I watched 539 hours of TV Shows, which quite frankly is mental. My most played week was Week 13 (March 23 - March 29), where I watched 69 episodes.
My most-played month was April with 180 plays, most-played day was a Sunday. Overall, I had 922 plays (episodes) over the year which is a lot lower than I anticipated considering how high it was at the start of 2020. I did watch a sh*t load of Brooklyn Nine-Nine though, watching every episode (143) in the space of a week, which would explain April! My most-played TV Shows of 2020 were (in order of plays):
|Brooklyn Nine-Nine||143||02D 03H 40M|
|American Horror Story||94||03D 00H 35M|
|Prison Break||88||02D 15H 43M|
|When Calls the Heart||67||02D 03H 57M|
|F is for Family||36||00D 16H 48M|
|Rick and Morty||31||00D 11H 35M|
|Atypical||28||00D 15H 24M|
|The Big Lez Show||27||00D 00H 00M|
|Peaky Blinders||27||01D 01H 17M|
|Todd & The Book Of Pure Evil||24||00D 08H 48M|
161 Genres, 30 Networks - most popular genre was Comedy, most popular network was Netflix.
I watched 240 hours of Movies. My most played week was Week 21 (May 18 - May 24), where I watched 11 movies.
My most-played month was January with 25 plays, most-played day was a Sunday (again). Overall, I had 141 plays (movies) over the year. I watched the BFG a few times, so somehow that managed to be my most watched movie of 2020. My highest-rated movies of 2020 were (no particular order):
|Death to 2020||10|
|The Photographer of Mauthausen||10|
|All the Bright Places||9|
|Five Feet Apart||10|
|Borat Subsequent Moviefilm||9|
380 Genres, 50 Studios - most popular genre was Comedy, most popular studio was Universal Pictures.
My music plays are down since 2019 according to last.fm, there’s a few reasons for this but the main one is that for a good few months throughout the year my spotify wasn’t automatically scrobbling to last.fm, so these numbers are slightly out which is annoying, but most of it is correct!
In 2020 I scrobbled 25,200 times with a daily average of 68 plays. I scrobbled 5,375 unique songs. My top five songs for the year were:
|Absolute in Doubt||Lil Peep||223|
|To Whom It May Concern||Ghostemane||166|
|Witchblades||Lil Peep, Lil Tracy||149|
|white tee||Lil Peep||132|
I scrobbled 3,462 unique albums, most of the top five were Lil Peep. Which, really is no surprise. My top five albums for the year were:
|Everybody's Everything||Lil Peep||613|
|HELLBOY (Spotify ver.)||Lil Peep||606|
|The Two of Us Are Dying||Killstation||406|
|Beautiful Strangers||✦ pink cig ✦||395|
I scrobbled 1,506 unique artists, and for the 4th year in a row Lil Peep was top of the list, no surprise again. My top five artists for the year were:
I’ve created 15 projects this year, some of which are released to the public and some of which are not. The below table is in no particular order:
|Snow Log Collector||C#||Winforms|
|Snow Recognition Database||C#||Winforms|
|Snow Inventory Password Reset||C#||Winforms|
|gooseFTP||C#||Winforms, Service, Library|
|Snow Update Checker||C#||Winforms|
|Snow Platform Monitor||C#||Winforms, Service, Library|
And that’s a wrap. 2020, what a horrific year. Hopefully 2021 works out better, but based on the current status of the UK COVID-19 and Brexit Crisis, we’ll have to see.
