PUTTING PEOPLE IN BOXES, SHARE LOVE

Today I watched the Danish commercial called All That We Share, and I highly encourage you all to watch it as well. With all the things going on right now, it hit me right in the feels and made me both very happy and sad. I hope you will all watch it and remember to spread all the love you can. ❤

 

YOU NEED TO WATCH SHERLOCK

I absolutely looove Sherlock (BBC’s version ofc), and you all really need to watch it. Season 4 just premiered, so it is the perfect time to start it.

You expect it to be about an old man smoking his pipe, but it isn’t like that at all. It’s set in modern-day London, and follows Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as his side-kick John Watson. I’ve collected all the reasons it’s so great, let’s just get into it.

  • Sherlock is SO funny. He’s a pure genius with no understanding for human emotions and behaviour what so ever. He is always very conscious of his appearance, and this all makes him extremely funny, which absolutely isn’t intended.
  • How amazing it is every time John puts Sherlock in place or teases him.
