The Best of the Year

It’s time for my 2020 End of the Year List

Hello! It’s that time of year. I know it’s a little late, I had to avoid the Spotify Wrapped competition.

On any given year, normally this list would solely consist of music I enjoyed this year. This year is a little different since my recent expansion into tech writing. So I’ve decided to share my favorite songs and albums, movies, TV shows, and books. Admittedly, I don’t read that often so that list might be incredibly short.

Either way, here’s that list.

  • Taylor Swift — folklore
  • YUNGBLUD — weird!
