Favorite Villains

Heroes are usually celebrated by everyone for their heroism (obviously) and overall awesomeness, but where’s the love for the villains? Although they are bad beings, I can’t help but love them. Unless you’re Professor Umbridge. Then you can burn for all I care. I’m also not a big fan of Voldemort, mainly because he (in my opinion) was pretty bland compared to the rest of the characters.

Sometimes I am more interested in the villain than the protagonist in the story. Take, for example, the trickster god Loki (who is on this list). Between Thor and Loki, I’d rather learn more about the “villain”. He just seems much more interesting than Thor (sorry, dude. You’re still really cool). There’s something about a person who doesn’t have many morals that makes them rather intriguing. I’m not saying that they’re good people, but they are interesting to watch/read about.

Nine Things I do to Alleviate Stress

Hello! I’ve been super stressed lately, and if you’re still in school, I’m sure this time of year is pretty awful for you too. If you’re in high school, AP testing season and finals are approaching and teachers decide that this is a great time to give all the projects. If you’re in college, the work load sucks in general.

A couple weeks ago I broke down and went haywire. I didn’t know why. I just couldn’t focus because my emotions were out of control. I stopped and thought of what could’ve cause this. My conclusion was stress.

That got me thinking. I have a couple ways I deal with my stress and wanted to share it with the world to hopefully help someone in need.

BBC Sherlock

Ok, so I know this isn’t my normal life update or book-ish post, but if you can’t tell already with my logo and all, I really, really, REALLY, like the TV show BBC Sherlock.

If you haven’t watched the show yet, do it now. It’s totally worth your time.

All I can think about right now is Sherlock.

I haven’t watched the last episode of the third season yet, because I’m scared of how it’s going to end until the next season comes out. Plus, I just don’t have the time to.

It’s kind of like for Queen of Shadows. I want to slow down with the episodes so the wait for the next season won’t seem as long.

When I saw on the internet that the next season (season 4) was going to be premiered in 2017, this was my reaction:

Anyway, I believe The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I’ll admit that I watched the TV show before reading the story, but I believe the BBC version of Sherlock has a modern twist to the original story.

If you don’t know who Sherlock Holmes is, he’s an unnaturally good detective that thinks differently (just a little) than how normal people would think. His side kick, Dr. Watson, well… he’s his sidekick. Again, I’m not quite sure how the original story goes.

In the BBC version of Sherlock, both the detective and sidekick live in London. In the beginning of the first season, Sherlock is looking for a flat mate while John Watson just came back from war and was looking for a place to stay. A mutual friend (whom you’ll only see for a little while) acquainted them, and Sherlock offered John a spot in his flat. From there, well, you’re just going to have to watch to find out their adventures.

It’s pretty freaking fantastic. I don’t know what about it makes it so special and entertaining to watch, but I love it so much.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the show:
