Wrap-up: July 2021

I don’t have that much to say for this opening. It was July. It was a month. I read a bit, I watched a fair bit more than I usually do. Sent off some job applications (to no response yet). Yeah. Much of a muchness.

The key:
🐝 = favourite
🕊️ = reread/rewatch/relisten
☀️ = 4 or 5 stars, highly recommend
☁️ = 3 or 4 stars, enjoyed/had fun reading
🌧️ = 2 or 3 stars, was alright/not for me but someone else might enjoy
🌩️ = 1 or 2 stars, bored out of my mind/it was awful
