Year In Search: What’ve We All Been Looking For In 2022?

Year In Search: What’ve We All Been Looking For In 2022?

From Halalan 2022 to “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”



The year’s been a blur, and our year in search proves that. We’ve gotten through the hell that was Halalan 2022—hours in line, faulty machines, [insert your chosen adjective] results—and found joy in animated films (our ages be damned). But now that it’s December, does anyone even remember January anymore?

Earlier this month, Google released their Year In Search 2022, an annual look at what trended throughout the entire year, from personalities to movies and TV series.


General news


  • Halalan 2022
  • VaxCertPh
  • precinct finder
  • Ukraine
  • Monkeypox
  • NATO
  • Gwyneth Chua
  • presidential race update
  • Ethylene Oxide
  • Bagyong Karding update

  • Queen Elizabeth II
  • Cherie Gil
  • Susan Roces
  • Aaron Carter
  • Technoblade
  • Shinzo Abe
  • Percy Lapid
  • Kim Mi-soo
  • Yoo Ju-eun
  • Betty White


2022 forced us out of the comfort of isolation, and events like Halalan 2022, Bagyong Karding and the war in Ukraine opened our eyes. Everything made us remember that, hey, there’s still a world out there to fight for.


Meanwhile, the world experienced great loss of women who we, at one point, thought would outlive the generations younger than them. Queen Elizabeth II, Betty White and Cherie Gil were—and will remain—mainstays in pop culture.


TV & film

TV shows or series

  • All of Us Are Dead
  • Extraordinary Attorney Woo

The opening of cinemas meant a resurgence of theater goers, but the cost of a movie ticket now is honestly a little disheartening. Thank god there are so many streaming platforms to choose from.



Oddly enough, none of the series or films I loved are on the 2022 Year In Search, but to each their own, right?

We will do what has to be done to pass the time and not think about our responsibilities. It’s called prioritizing our mental health.
