The Best Inspirational Twitter Accounts to Follow.

We all like a good inspirational story or a bit of motivation to make us want to get up and do something. This is the thing you should be reading. We’ll share with you some of the best Twitter accounts to follow to feel like you can tackle anyhting and to fill you with inspiration. These are in no particular order.

1. @_StephensStory

 

We’re going to start with this Twitter account after we shared a story early about Stephen and his fight against terminal cancer and the fact that he has now successfully raised £1 million for The Teenage Cancer Trust. Stephen tweets out daily about his struggle and his zest for life, and is attributed to such lovely quotes like the one above. The fact that his dedicating the rest of his life to raising money for others is admirable and though he sadly believes he is nearing the end of his life I’m sure his family will carry on his amazing legacy.

2. @SimonSinek

 

Simon is an author and a leader,  his tweets consist of uplifting and motivating messages about leadership as well as simply being human. The quotes he comes up with are truly inspiring and just having a quick scan down his twitter feed I already feel more powerful and motivated. If you don’t feel the same, well I don’t know what to say to that really!

3. @Oprah

 

The classic, Oprah is known for her inspirational stories that she shares as well as her spiritual advice and guidance. Her twitter feed is no different, she often sends out positive messages to her 28 million followers, though she does often share different sorts of tweets around her TV shows and channels, but the majority of her updates seem to be motivational.

4. @AdmireMyInspire

 

This Twitter account is literally just set up for inspirational quotes. They’re definitely plentiful too with several posts a day. Many posts are quotes attributed to other people or are retweets of other quotes that they have seen. I can guarantee that they’ll make you want to be a better person.

5. @TonyRobbins

 

Tony Robbins is famous in America as a life coach, self-help author and motivational speaker. As you’d expect his timeline on Twitter mirrors that; with posts about reaching for success as well as links to other motivational articles. He must be doing something right as he has over 2 million followers!

6. @TheJeetBanerjee

 

This a more business based account for motivation; if you want to climb the ladder of success then look no further than here for inspirational articles about success in the workplace. Jeet is only 21 but his advice is sound, he’s already been a TEDx speaker and is a best-selling author. On his feed you’ll find lots of links to articles which can help you improve on the road to success as well as his own personal quotes and he is very active at replying to those interested in what he has to say.

7. @DixieDynamite

 

Dixie is another life coach who shares her life advice on Twitter, her words are again motivational and inspirational, as the others but Dixie seems to be very active in chatting with her followers. She often shares advice from other followers well which is great for a larger perspective on life and musings about it.

8. @PersDevQuotes

This account does what it says on the tin. It’s chok-a-block full of quotes to inspire you towards your own personal development. This is in all capacities, whether it be success, happiness or confidence.

9. @0

Yes, @0 is a real account and it is all about motivation and inspiration. Most of the posts on this account are quotes on pictures but sometimes it’s just nice to see an inspirational quote picture… not that they really get me going. Though the quotes that are shared are very good.

10. @BeFitMotivation

 

A lot of fitness motivation quote Twitter accounts can have way too many photographs of skinny women posing in gym gear, but this one balances it out well, there are great quotes to help you keep motivated for your workout or your Gym trip.

It’s April fools day so here are some of our favourite ever prank GIFs

Some of these pranks are classics, some are downright bizzare (we’re looking at you Japan) and some are small but hilarious! We hope you’ve all had a fantastic April fools day and that this makes it even better.

Japanese prank shows 

What an ‘inventive’ idea, step into an elevator, go down a slide full of gunge…

What? It’s just a dinosaur…

Seriously though, how do they even come up with these ideas.

Smaller pranks

This is from a YouTube channel where the couple plays pranks on each other.

This is a classic use of cling film.

Hahahah is the only thing needed to be said here.

Walked right into it.

The classic ‘pretend you’re eating salt’.

Prank TV/YouTube shows

I remember seeing this one on TV. Hilarious.

I love her look of confusion, ‘am I a vampire?’

Bizarre, but so well executed.

Viral pranks

This was a viral promo for the new Carrie film at a small coffee joint.

LG set this one up in another elevator prank; they sure are popular.

Even more recently Pepsi created this Bus Stop prank which was very similar to another LG prank.

Animal pranks

Who knew ants could be pranked?

That poor dog looks like he’s seen a ghost.

And finally, this guy just ain’t bothered.

Some of our favourite British adverts ever in GIF form.

As you may have noticed this week we’ve been looking at adverts and advertising and ads. Today we’re going to combine this with one of our favourite thing in the world. GIFs. Yes that’s right ladies and gents, we’ll be bringing you some fantastic advert-y goodness in fantastical GIF form, buckle in.

BEER

Guinness

Possibly the most famous advert of ALL time, in Britain anyway, I don’t know if it aired anywhere else, this Guinness ad still stands the test of time. The incredible white horses wave effect and the motivational narration makes this one fantastic spectacle to watch.

Ah, the famous Melanie Sykes advert from Boddingtons. A man is making a sweltering run across a desert to… well chase an ice cream van, and get served a beer from Mel. Of course.

CHOCOLATE

Cadbury have some truly epic adverts in their history, these two are just some examples, extremely visual and bizarre they caught a lot of attention at the time and live on as very popular adverts.

HOLIDAYS

Booking.com’s latest advert is truly wonderful, the ‘Booking Epic’ advert is hilarious and overdramatic, just how we like an advert.

SMASH

Yes Smash gets it’s own category because the adverts were so gosh darn iconic. They were originally aired in the 70s!

OTHER

Can you tell I ran out of category names? No? Good. This is another iconic British advert from Yellow pages which was shown at christmas, the boy featured in the ad has been rumoured to Robbie williams, but is quite obviously not due to the dates of his birth and the fact he’d have been 18 when the ad was filmed. Pointless fact of the day for you.

I can still remember this advery being on TV in 2003, the idea is so simple but really stuck in my mind. It simply shows a woman walking along a street singing and handing out bottles of Coca-Cola. Superb.

In the theme of Coca-Cola, here is the advert us Brits go MAD about at Christmas, the Coca-Cola Christmas trucks. As soon as we’ve seen it on TV and heard the classic ‘Holidays are coming’ tune, it’s definitely 100% Christmas time. No matter what anyone else says.

And finally, one for the ladies, the classic Levi’s 501 jeans advert was extremely popular with the women of the time and no doubt helped Levi’s to ship a couple of extra pairs of Jeans.

Which celebs would we actually buy things from.

So on the subject of advertising this week we’ll today look at the celebrities that we’d actually buy products from. All to often you see celebrities releasing or endorsing products that you think, uuuuhh why? For example One Direction’s perfume for women or Katie Price’s range of horse riding paraphernalia or even Ichiban lipstick for men from Joey Tribiani, oh wait that one isn’t real. So anyway we thought we’d give a list of celebs we’d actually buy things from and what they’d be selling us.

1. JENNIFER LAWRENCE

What we’d buy from Jennifer: Literally anything. Or if we were forced to pick, probably an ebook titled ‘how to be witty at red carpet events’.

2. RYAN GOSLING 

What we’d buy from Ryan: Cereal, or spoons.

3. EMMA STONE

What we’d buy from Emma: A potion of cute?! Ok no, I guess that doesn’t exist, so I’m going to say Spice Girls memorabilia.

4. BRANGELINA

What we’d buy from Brad and Ange: Nappies, Because they have lots of kids I guess.

5. JASON MOMOA

What we’d buy from Jason: Mmmmmm drool.. oh sorry, I don’t know maybe protein powder. Drool……..

5. TOM HANKS 

What we’d buy from Tom: A guide to being the nicest person on the planet.

6. EMMA WATSON

What we’d buy from Emma: Looking at this GIF, toothpaste.

7. JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT

What we’d buy from Joseph: Charm. Actual Charm.

8. TINA FEY & AMY POELHER (They count as one)

What we’d buy from them: A joke book. Possibly Alcohol.

9. Steve Carrell

What we’d buy from Steve: Dunder Mifflin paper.

10. KIM KARDASHIAN

What we’d buy from Kim: Nothing. Soz.

Some of the best clever and funny print adverts.

This week we’re looking at adverts, and today in particular we’re looking at some of the greatest print advertisements that have been made and serve their purpose very well. They are both clever and funny, well most are funny, some are just incredibly clever. We’re often so caught up in social and video we forget to pay attention to these  print adverts, but here we take a closer look and appreciate the hard-work and design that went into these. We’ll start with the clever and move onto the funny. (Have I said clever and funny too many times in this intro?)

printadg

This FedEx poster was made to show the link between the US and Brazil companies and how simple it is to send items between the two. The design is simple, a package passed between two windows on a wall, with the image of the countries overlaid. Simple yet striking.

facebookprint

I really like the look of this Sharpie advert, it is a great way of advertising a new product and it gives you an instant impression of the product and what it can achieve. When you look closer still you can actually see that it is also a comic of the story of Facebook, which lends itself well to the tagline of the poster, about there being one story and two points. (Two points to the story and two points to the pen). See, clever.

pepso

This Pepsi advert is visually striking and a good representation of what can be done in print advertising without the use of the text. The abstract image of the vein-like image is instantly attention-drawing and gives the viewer the chance to notice the Pepsi logo within it. Simple but very clever.

printadl

This is a rather serious advert but we thought it was especially clever because safe driving posters are normally much more shock based, or show an actual road/car in the advert. It not only shows why driving while tired is a problem, but I felt that it could have also worked well with a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ tagline.

printadu

This is gross, but then again that’s the point. The advert uses the visual image tell you why you need hand sanitizer, and I’ll tell you what, I feel like I need it now. This image was part of a sequence of adverts where different everyday communal objects we touch were replaced with dirty hands and fingers, such as door nobs and tube handrails. It’s an excellent way of showing that we touch what everyone else has touched. Ew.

printadk

Again another very simple concept, but it works well at showing you what the product can do in a funny and clever way. Realistically is a parent going to use this pen for this reason? No they aren’t but they know they can count on it when they’re labelling something that’s likely to get wet.

printnn

Moving onto the funny ones, I personally love this one, though I know it plays to a stereotype, I think it does it very well. Showing that if the man takes longer than 6 seconds to answer he’ll likely be in the doghouse, but if he can speed up his mind with the nutritional powder drink, then he could be enjoying an nice evening in bed together. As I said, very stereotypical but well done.

printadr

I love this fantastic advert for a chain of cinemas, it takes one of the most famous tropes in cinema and makes it work oh so well for this tagline. I love these clever taglines; the reality of the titanic trope sucks, and therefore you should stay in the cinema. Genius.

dyson

Weirdly, I didn’t actually mean to have two posters in a row with a ‘sucks’ headline, but it happened and here we are. This is a great use of backward advertising, as at first glance you expect this to be a personal vendetta against the product featured, but in reality its just another of those pesky clever taglines. ‘Oh, you mean the vacuum sucks’. Nice.

Heineken---One-choice-beer

I’ve left my favourite until last. Beer adverts are notoriously clever, this is no exception. All routes lead to beer, no matter what the girl at the bar answers. If you can read the small bits some of them are hilarious. The woman says ‘The ring. See the ring?’ and you (the buyer) reply, ‘Yeah it was great. I loved how they tied up the loose ends in the sequel’.

Top 10 viral Social Media reactives.

Here is a look at some of our personal favourite brand reactions to current affairs and fan mentions, including posts from Oreo, Tesco Mobile and Paddy Power.

1. Oreo 

 

We begin with one of the most famous brand reactives of all time, the Oreo black-out tweet. Back in 2013, during the superbowl, many brands were poised ready for any sort of bandwagon to jump on and easily the most successful one was this. The stadium in which the Super Bowl was taking place suffered an almighty black out and play was stopped which meant that the brands had time to get to work on their reactions.

Oreo sent out the above tweet saying, ‘No power? No problem.’ and attaching an original image of an Oreo in the dark with the caption ‘You can still dunk in the dark’. The tweet got a lot of attention with over 15,000 re-tweets and subsequent positive write ups stating that the tweet had won the marketing Super Bowl.

2. Tesco Mobile 

Tesco Mobile are one of the brand kings on twitter for me, their tweets are consistently funny and well timed. I can only assume they hire struggling stand-up comedians to write their tweets. Which would make sense with their previous #nojoke campaign which featured well-known comedians as the face of it. One of their most famous retorts can be seen above and is a great example of when reactive tweets go right, a girl thought it hilarious when her friend’s phone went to a Tesco Mobile voicemail and Tesco replied to her, thinking it was pretty funny that her friends were ignoring her.

Cue the thousands of re-tweets and Tesco Mobile saw themselves thrown onto a Twitter pedestal for everyone waiting to see what would happen next. Other notable mentions go to the time they had a Twitter rap battle with the O2 Twitter account, and more recently started an online Twitter discussion with a fan and loads of other brands including Yorkshire tea and Jaffa cakes. All in all Tesco Mobile are great at their reactive work as can clearly be seen here.

3. Bodyform

Now this reactive is very often in question as to whether it was really reacting to a real member of the public or if it was all carefully orchestrated. However it initially came off as entirely reactive and proved very popular so I am still including it in the list. It all started with a post from a man named Richard who posted a comment to the Bodyform Facebook page saying that the Bodyform commercials gave off the wrong impression and that he expected a woman to be all full of joy, skydiving and surfing and excreting a blue liquid whilst at that time of the month, but instead what he found was more akin to the girl from the Exorcist.

Bodyform smartly replied with a video from their imaginary CEO who told it Richard like it is, and it again proved very popular, with it being the talk of the internet and people loving that the brand was appearing so tongue in cheek.

4. Arby’s 

Arby’s ‘won’ the Social Media race at The Grammy’s this year, with a tweet related to Pharrell Williams, who turned up to the Grammy’s in an unmissable oversized Vivienne Westwood hat. This hat somewhat resembled that of the Arby’s logo and so they cleverly tweeted asking if they could have their hat back, and this led to over 80,000 retweets.

5. Nandos

Following the announcement last year of Alex Fergusons retirement as manager of Manchester Utd. Nandos came up with a brilliant idea to steal some of the spotlight; they announced #NandosFergieTime which meant that Manchester Nandos branches would be open an extra 5 minutes on May 8th (the day he resigned). The initial tweet got lots of news website coverage and was re-tweeted over 16,000 times.

6.  Paddy Power

In another Fergie related stunt Paddy Power created a fake Alex Ferguson and placed it outside of Manchester United’s football ground. This stunt took place in January of this year when Man U had been suffering from poor performance on the field (especially the night before in a 3-1 defeat), possibly due to the new manager. The cheeky bookies put a waxwork Fergie in a glass box outside Old Trafford and had In case of emergency break glass, emblazoned on the side of it. They then tweeted a picture of it and got over 3,000 re-tweets.

7. Tide

The lesser well-known Super Bowl Blackout tweet, but still successful for the brand was the one from washing powder brand Tide. You know the back story, the lights went out at the 2013 Super Bowl blah blah blah… Tide responded with a tweet almost as good as Oreo’s saying they couldn’t fix the blackout but they could get your stains out, a clever quick play on words that worked well for the brand as they got over 1,000 re-tweets!

8. Snog Frozen Yoghurt

Quite recently there was a ‘social experiment’ video which started going viral, from exposure on sites like Reddit and Buzzfeed. The video led itself easily to parody as it came a across as more than a little pretentious. The first and most apt parody came from a UK fro-yo brand called Snog, and as we all know us Brits often call a kiss a snog. The video shows couples having their first ‘snog’ and yep you guessed it, they don’t actually snog, they share a cup of Snog fro-yo instead. They got 88,000 views from the stunt; not entirely a viral success compared to the original video’s 63 million views, but not bad for their first ever YouTube upload.

9. The Simpsons

Quite recently there was a large star-studded event in Hollywood, you may have heard of it, The Oscars? Anyway during said Oscars Ellen DeGeneres (who was presenting) took a selfie filled with celebrities (in part of a marketing stunt for Samsung) and it became the most re-tweeted tweet of all time. One of the most popular parody versions of said tweet was the one which came from the Simpsons team, a great push for the show, and a great animation still too! They didn’t quite beat Ellen’s 2 million re-tweets but they got a substantial 32,000!

10. Jaffa Cakes

Jaffa Cakes joins our list after their inspired online stunt which greeted our eyes only yesterday. Yesterday was the day of the 2014 budget in which George Osborne revealed that a new less counterfeit-able £1 coin would be released a few years into the future. News which we’d already found out several hours earlier on the internet. The new coin is to be 12 sided like the original threepenny piece and Jaffa Cakes decided that it was a very smart idea. They created a mock up image of a new 12-sided Jaffa Cake and said they’ll fight the counterfeit Jaffa Cake market!

Cheltenham Festival – If social networks were in a horse race.

This is what the Race Card would look like if Social Networks were involved in a horse race.

Overview: The race is a tough one to call, but if I had to take a guess I’d definitely take a punt on Twitter who has showed increasing promise and uptake. Though I’m not one to discount Instagram, who is also in with a chance, and has been going from strength to strenght recently, especially one to watch now it’s wearing filters for the first time. However this is a wide-open race and it could really be anyone’s for the taking. E/W shout: Facebook.

1. Twitter

EVENS

The likely winner! Twitter may be slowing in growth but this 8 year old network has shown itself one of the most popular out there. It may find itself up against some tough competition here, but it shows consistency in it’s trends and hashtags and will definitely be a front-runner. It has recently seen some falls, but looks sure to pick itself back up and race stronger than ever.

2. Instagram

4/1

This relative youngster to the field has shown impressive form, and it has taken to the going well. The field definitely has space for this runner and with new addition of filters for the first time, it’s sure to attract some backers. The previous photo finish was a close call for this entry, but no other competitors came close. In a new stable with stable mate Facebook, it looks sure to give a good performance from here-on and push the text-filled front-runner to it’s limits.

3. Vine

6/1

The youngest in the field and the most spirited, this guy is a fan favourite who always pleases. Though initially an unsure bet it has improved ten-fold through the previous season, with some strong runs in its favour. Has been known to run in short 6 second bursts, but usually can repeat that technique frequently. Shows willing and is eager to please.

4. Pinterest

8/1

This a popular runner for ladies day, many favouring this across the boards. Has previously been pinned as an outsider, but now shows increasing promise as a frontrunner. This is one not to be discounted, it’s one runner that can keep the pace and stay the distance.

5. Google Plus

10/1

This runner has not been sure what to do for a while now, integration with the YouTube stables was it’s recent venture, but YouTube commented this just isn’t working for him. When first joining the game it showed substantial promise with many singing it’s praises before it had even taken on a whole season. However it has mostly failed to live up to the initial hype. However it is a solid bet with very few problems ever noted, and could be soon living up to it’s pledge.

6.  Facebook

12/1

Though I really do Like this entry, it is running a little past it’s prime now. At 10 years old it has struggled with recent changes, and taken a few falls. Perhaps worth a punt E/W because of a prolific following; but losing favour and definitely needs to show more to prove it’s one to stay the course.

N/R: Snapchat, Reddit, Tumblr

These runners didn’t make it to the race because one was too young, one turned out to not even be a social network and the other was too crazy, respectively.

Our hot tips for the Cheltenham Races – Day one – based on the coolest names. Of course.

So the festival is dawning with the first race kicking off at 1.30pm tomorrow, and like all avid Cheltenham dwelling race fans we’ve been looking at the upcoming race-card and have been carefully selecting our winners. Based on their splendid names of course! So here we go we’ll give the day the race and why you should be picking this particular horse.

And they’re off…!

Tuesday 1.30pm Supreme novices hurdle

TO WIN: No.6 Josses Hill -

Quite obvious as to why we’ve chosen number 6 here… because it’s name closely resembles that of a famous movie star.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

No. 17 Wicklow Brave – gets a mention because it sounds like it should be a character from Lord of the Rings.

No. 7 Sgt Reckless – I’m not really sure you even need a reason here. Bad-ass.

 

Tuesday 2.05pm Arkle Chase

TO WIN: No. 2 Champagne fever -

Because I’m secretly a functioning alcoholic. Not really, but I do like Champagne. (Bonus: This one actually might be a good shout because it’s currently favourite)

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

No. 7 Trifolium – Just for being a posh way of going ‘I’M IRISH’ (Trifolium, I discovered is the posh name for clover)

 

Tuesday 2.40pm Handicap Chase

TO WIN: No. 14 Shakalakaboomboom -

This is a simply fantastic name for a racehorse, if only just because the commentator is going to have to say it really excitedly if it comes close to the win.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

No. 15 Relax – Yep, that’s exactly what it’s called and let’s hope it does just that, but not so relaxed it goes at a leisurely trot pace.

No. 20 Wrong Turn – Let’s hope this one doesn’t do that.

 

Tuesday 3.20pm Champion hurdle

TO WIN: No.6 My Tent Or Yours -

Again this one speaks for itsself we like the subtle suggestion the name implies.

HONORABLE MENTIONS: 

No. 8 Ptit Zig – I have no idea either, might as well have been call Pig Titz.

 

Tuesday 4.00pm OLBG Mares’ Hurdle

TO WIN: 13. Hidden Identity -

In all honesty, this was a tough one to pick, I went with the above because I liked the idea that a horse had to go into the witness protection programme and now runs at Cheltenham to cover it’s identity.

HONORABLE MENTIONS: 

No. 16 Top Totti – Oi Oi!

No. 8 Lunique – Because unique wasn’t unique enough.

 

Tuesday 4.40pm National Hunt Chase

TO WIN: No.14 Shutthefrontdoor

This is simple incredible, because if this horse win, and it’s likely it will, you can literally exclaim, SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!

HONORABLE MENTIONS: 

No. 4 Beeves – Like Jeeves the butler but now with added BEES. (Arrested development fans take note).

No. 1 According to Trev – I wonder what was according to Trev, and how he feels about whatever the thing he said, being used to name a horse.

 

Tuesday 5.15pm Novices’ handicap chase

TO WIN: No. 3 Grandads horse -

I hope this as obviously named as it seems, it was literally someone’s Grandad’s horse. Just to warn you he is the biggest outsider so may not win.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

No. 4 Baby Mix – Sounds like the next big British Girl-band.

No 16. Tony Star – I love animals with human names. There’s something hilarious about it.

 

So there we have it go forth and make lots of money!*

*Disclaimer: Don’t come crying to me of you lose all your money. I claim no responsibility.

Things you’ll definitely see on social media during the 2014 Oscars

Here we go then, it’s The Oscars on Sunday. Here are all things you’ll see being Tweeted and Facebook-ed during the big show.

“That thing Jennifer Lawrence did was amazing.”

Whether she falls over, says something hilarious about shots in a post Oscar win conference, you can guarantee she’ll do something GIF worthy and that the whole of the internet will be talking about it.

“Brangelina look amazing.”

Enough said really. They always look flawless and cute together. Everyone always says so. Sorry Jen.

(PS. Who can forget that leg pose. Not me I tell you.)

Can’t believe they cut *insert person here* off on their speech. 

You probably remember the countless times people have been cut off by music when delivering their acceptance speech, and you probably remember the countless times that people were outraged that they were cut off by the Academy.

Most notable in recent memory is Ben Affleck getting cut off whilst thanking his kids.

Anything referencing Meryl. 

MERYL

Everyone everywhere will mention Meryl, acceptance speeches, tweets about how amazing she is, GIFs of her flawlessness. Meryl is the queen of The Oscars it would be a travesty for her not to be mentioned.

Idina Menzel performing Let it Go is my dreeeeam. 

The internet has literally gone crazy over Disney’s latest offering. Let it go is the break out song and is nominated for Best Original Song and is being performed at the awards show. People will tweet about how they’re crying at the performance and how much they love it. I guarantee it.

If Gravity doesn’t win visual effects I’ll eat Pharrell’s hat. 

This GIF appropriately sums up how every film buff will feel if Gravity loses out on the Visual Effects award, especially if it loses to The Lone Ranger. (Hah. As if.)

People will be writing tweets about knowing that Gravity will win this award as if the rest of us didn’t know that already.

Check out our list of the best and worst dressed at the Oscars which is in no way the same as the other 1000 articles of the same name.

Every celeb gossip twitter account will have this tweet. Like every single one. It’ll be hard to avoid.

Something about McConaghey’s McConaissance. 

Will tell you about the amazing resurgence in his career as if a 100 articles haven’t been written about it before. Gee thanks. Please tell me more about your theories.

Leonardo Di Caprio didn’t win again sad face. 

Everyone thinks he can do it this year, but all of us in our heart of hearts know that there are some pretty solid contenders out there in Chiwitel Ejiofor and McConaughey, so it’s likely he’ll be going home empty handed and we’ll vent our sadness at his loss online or you know make jokes about it.

Winner of best sound mixing is… yeah yeah move on we don’t care. 

Everyone always gets bored at this point, and tells the internet that they don’t care in the hopes that it’ll hurry this section up  where we know none of the nominees.

Omg I’m so tired.


Britain’s everywhere will be saying this. Thank God I took Monday off.
