Today’s the 26th of July, at least where I live. I live in Shanghai. I have a month or so left of summer. I’m flying to the States on the 26th of August, which is exactly one month from now. That’s crazy! I won’t be coming back to Shanghai for a long time, which is super weird for me because I’ve practically lived here my entire life (for all intents and purposes).
So, summer. I’ve been staying indoors for the most part because it is super hot and humid outside. Staying indoors means a lot of time on the computer, a lot of time on the computer means a lot of time on the Internet. I’ve been using my Youku (the Chinese Youtube) app to watch Sherlock, this super awesome TV show, and now I’m obsessed! I’ve watched all the episodes except for The Abominable Bride. Plus, a friend told me that the new season is coming out January 2017! I watched the trailer and I’m so excited. My favourite characters are Sherlock Holmes (obviously), John Watson (I just really like his personality!), and Mycroft Holmes. I hope that together they’ll be able to bring Moriarty down. Ugh, I really hate Moriarty. Why does he of all people have to return?
I’m looking for more material on Sherlock to read, and I’ve found both Sherlock’s and John’s blogs online! BBC probably made up the blogs, but still, both are pretty cool. Sorry Sherlock, but I like John’s blog better. Below are the links to the two blogs!

The Personal Blog of Dr. John H. Watson: http://www.johnwatsonblog.co.uk
There is a commenter on both Sherlock’s and John’s blog–his/her alias is theimprobableone. Who is he? I think he’s Anderson, but I’m not sure.
And on this page you can find a whole bunch of Sherlock related blogs!: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4yTrVL4srk48mKs8bhK4TvM/other-sherlock-related-websites
I’m also going to read The Adventures and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I thought I would have to order it from Amazon or something, but then I was surprised to find that the book was in my house. I think my dad bought it when we went on a family trip to Italy a few years ago. I’m disappointed in myself that I watched the TV show before I read the book. Usually I read the book before I watch the movie, you know? Because books are just so much better. The Sherlock TV show is amazing, and the book has to be even more amazing than that, so I’ll have to start reading… NOW!
So yeah, that’s my summer so far. I think I’ll write more posts on this blog in the future. Maybe I’ll write book reviews and talk about my new school, too. Thanks for reading this blog, everyone. 🙂
