Sherlock. Holmes. I. Love. Him.
In my last blog post I mentioned this amazing character by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He is absolutely amazing. Yes, I know…you are now wondering how and why Mr. Holmes fits into the subject of my “innate gift”. First off, the only reason why I am totally and completely obsessed with human emotion and behavior is due to Mr. Holmes and his ability to be specifically correct, ALL THE TIME, about anything and everything! Second, he’s just really cool. And anybody who wants to disagree with me can just go to– okay, sorry…sometimes I get very defensive. But still, all of you out there know what I mean.
Let me break down Mr. Holmes’ character in one word, EPIC (Emotionless Prodigy with Intellectual Composure). What makes him supremely brilliant is that he never loses his ‘cool’ and this is mainly because he has mastered this amazing skill of never being attached to anything that he is involved with. Some may call that heartless or shrewd, but I believe that it is an excellent behavior that one should obtain, or at least try to obtain. Mr. Holmes, is of course very intelligent, he has a very vast knowledge on various different subjects which he is able to analyze and dissect in every form possible.
Okay, so now you know why he’s “EPIC”, however I still need to address the issue to how this relates to my “innate gift”. See, about a few years ago I began reading the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Mind you I’m still only in the middle of the entire collection. I believe that since I have been reading the works for some time now, subconsciously, I have begun to pick up on a few of Mr. Holmes’s traits. Now, I am not claiming to be “EPIC” myself, but I think when you have been exposed to such a character who has these deep thoughts and mysterious habits, you begin to occupy your mind with questions about that character. After these questions, you begin to act like the character, and that’s how I guess it began. I am only good at one thing though. I can only tell when people like each other. Well, I think that isn’t as bad as having no super cool trait. Hence, I am proud of myself =D
This episode of Sherlock Holmes is one of the best. Hope all of you enjoy it.
