April 2023 Summary

I actually can't believe I went a whole month without posting. I am so sorry, I'll try to get back into it. For now, here's what I did during April of 2023

📆 01 May 2023 📕 1100 words ⏳ 3 min. 🏷️ music podcasts reading gaming

It is the month of May already, and this is the first time I went for an entire 30 days without doing any blogging here. It is a little disappointing, but its also not that big of a deal.

I just had some free time during Eastern which were quite relaxing. I don’t know if I’ll write everything I did but you can get an idea out of this summary.


I listened to a total of 82 hours of podcasts, I would say a fair bit of that was while I slept, since I tend to leave them playing for a while with a sleep timer.

  • Into The Aether: took over again with around 19 hours of playtime, I have to say I don’t particularly remember much this time.
  • Welcome to Night Vale: I think this one is a fairly popular podcast, and I have listened to it before, since its so unique and weird I kinda listened to it before goin to sleep pretty often during April, a total of 9 hours.
  • Unexplained: Season 6, Episode 12, a three parter that got quite a bit of my attention. I listened to a few other episodes but that one was while I was fully awake. 6.3 hours.
  • Breakers: I listened to the last episodes of the first season and it was quite a thrilling listen, I recommend this one, its about people trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world and I kinda love it. Its a single host doing all the voices, but he pulls it off. 5.8 hours.
  • Sweet Bobby: A short series about a pretty peculiar catfishing case, some find it quite ridiculous and consider the victim super gullible, others admire the lenghts the catfisher went to keep the facade going for a decade, I found it entertaining.

Other podcasts that got at least 3 hours of playtime were Retro Game Time Machine, Self-Hosted, Escape Pod, Trash Taste and Destination Linux.


  • Eisenhorn: Xenos: I didn’t really keep going with First and Only, a novel from the Warhammer 40K universe I started, this one, however, from the same author, hooked me pretty hard, it is a long story, but I have read up to chapter 21 from the book out of 27. The hype and stakes are pretty cool, its not like what I usually think about when I think of Warhammer, this story is not about Space Marines or epic space battles. This is about an inquisitor, who gets rid of heretics, xenos and mutants, and it is a bit of a detective story unraveling a pretty big conspiracy against the Empire, heresy indeed. Give it a read honestly, its pretty good, I will finish it soon enough, although chapters are getting a bit longer lately.


  • Gurren Lagann: I heard this one was some people’s favorite anime, so I decided to give it a watch, right now I am at episode 9, and I kinda like how its going. It is a Mecha anime with big robot fights and quite an interesting world to explore, the plot is interesting and characters are a bit of a mixed bag, however I am interested on what’s going on and the stakes and hype is real.

  • Dead Mount Death Play: I don’t know much about this one, I went pretty much blind, its a fantasy manga that starts out with the Demonlord and the Hero’s final encounter, after an incredibly well animated fight scene, the villain casts a spell that ends up breaking the barrier between dimensions, and clashing with the real world as we know it (reverse Isekai stuff but don’t skip it because of that). I don’t want to say much more, it seems really, really interesting.


  • One Outs: As I said, after watching the anime I have read some of the manga, but I still don’t reach the point where the anime stops, still, its fun to see the story being told in this medium.

  • Heavenly Delusion: I had started this one a while ago, I am not sure why I stopped reading it, I realized an anime came out this season, so I decided to keep reading it a bit rather than watching it, even though I have heard a ton of good things about it.

  • Kingdom: I am still up to date on this one, some heavy stuff is happening right now, you better start this one already before it reaches 800 chapters!


  • The Super Mario Bros Movie: Really fun for everyone, I had a blast watching it, not a masterpiece by any means but a nice time nonetheless. Peaches Peaches Peaches Peaches Peaches, Peaches Peaches Peaches Peaches Peaches, ooooooh I love you.


Like last month, gaming took over a bit of my life again, I kept playing Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, Freedom Unite and I also played quite a bit of Minecraft on some my personal server and other SMPs

Device Usage

I used my computer quite a lot less compared to last month, with a total of 135 hours of screen time.


Also, the browser extension for ActivityWatch recently got accepted on the Firefox Add-on store again, so I managed to record a couple of stats from it.

  • Firefox was used for 74 hours
    • Youtube was used for 27 hours
    • Twitch was used for 2 hours
  • PPSSPP was used for 14 hours
  • Godot Engine was used for 9 hours
  • Minecraft was played for 8 hours


I used my phone for a total of 199 hours, this was quite a lot more than previous times, oops.

  • Newpipe, used for 75 hours
  • YouTube, used for 14 hours
  • WhatsApp, used for 13 hours
  • Librera, used for 12 hours
  • Bromite, used for 9 hours
  • Infinity for Reddit, used for 8 hours
  • Tusky, used for 5 hours
  • Tachiyomi, used for 4 hours

Finishing up

I actually got an internship now, I took my time huh, I will probably be unable to blog as often, but maybe since my time will now be shorter, I will actually decided to write quick blogposts instead of playing videogames for 3 hours straight, I recently started watching some videos from the QSMP, a minecraft series featuring creators speaking Spanish, English and now Protuguese, it is pretty fun so far. Until later guys!
