As if you haven't heard enough about this extraordinary movie, here is yet another rant and gush session on how utterly amazing this film was. If you are unfamiliar with Queen because you are new to this planet or were deprived as a child, here is Queen in a few short words: Queen is life.

Okay, but seriously. Queen is a rock band and a phenomenon that has spanned across generations and will continue to because they were able to write music that could easily be anyone's anthem whether you were pumping yourself up with We Will Rock You or crying your eyes out to Love Of My Life. The music spoke to so many people and are still hits to this day.

And you can't mention Queen without mentioning Freddie Mercury, who was a figure who promoted inclusivity and living life to its utter fullest. Freddie Mercury took every chance, enjoyed every second, and is the example we all need to follow in terms of living our lives to the best of our ability.

Bohemian Rhapsody, the recent biopic that was released detailing the life of frontman Freddie Mercury and how Queen came to be. The movie was not only raw and a total jam session, but it was powerful. My eyes were completely glued to the screen and the few times that I could actually tear my eyes away, I would look around me and see people crying, laughing, and in total awe. It was a truly extraordinary thing to behold.

To step up and tell the story of Freddie Mercury in a completely authentic way is a behemoth of a project, but ladies and gentlemen, it has been done. Rami Malek was golden, and his performance will be applauded for decades and the other actors who portrayed the other members of Queen, Ben Hardy (Roger Taylor), Gwilym Lee (Brian May), and Joseph Mazzello (John Deacon), were so authentic, I had to remind myself that this was a film, and these were not the real men on the screen. Seriously, the resemblance shook my soul.

I grew up with the music of Queen and the story of Freddie Mercury. My best friend and I will still have a hard-core jam session to Bohemian Rhapsody and as a kid, I personally put on spine-chilling shows of Queen covers. I grew up with that image of what it was to live life the way it was meant to be lived and this film captured that. And more importantly, it didn't focus on Freddie Mercury's ending, but his beginning and middle which were such significant parts. This movie was a beautiful masterpiece to capture a beautiful life and band.

So, thank you to the cast and creative team of Bohemian Rhapsody. You gave this generation the greatest gift and allowed Freddie's message to reach new hearts. Truly, thank you.

11 Things You Understand If You Hate Physical Contact

Please keep your hands and feet away from me at all times.

We currently live in a world where EVERYONE LIKES TO TOUCH EACH OTHER. People enjoy hugs, high fives, tapping others on the shoulder, pokes, ect. For someone like you and me (I'm assuming you too since you clicked on this article), this is the WORST thing in the world. Whenever I think of someone touching me (even just a poke) without my permission my reaction is like Sofia Vergara in Modern Family.

I mean, when I take that love languages quiz, physical touch is always on the bottom of my preferences. So I thought to my self, you know I can't be the only person in the world that hates physical touching. So here are 11 things every person who hates physical touch will understand:


1. When people tickle you

I don't care that it's just for fun and jokes; I'm not laughing because I want to, you are literally forcing me to laugh. I hate you, get your greasy hands off of me before I make you get them off of me.


2. When people think they need to tap your shoulder to get your attention

As if simply saying "Hey" followed by my name wasn't enough. I don't need your grubby little fingers touching me. Now I'm annoyed with you before this conversation even started, what do you want?


3. When someone you barely know reaches in for a hug

I don't know who the heck you're thinking you're about to hug because it sure isn't going to be me. Hugs are reserved for people I know well and like, not you. Okay release me now, I am not enjoying this. LET ME GO.


4. When people tell you that you aren't an affectionate person

Are you aware there are ways to show my affection without constantly being all over you like a koala bear? Yes, I'm affectionate, hop off.


5. When someone is in your personal space

We could be best friends, we could be complete strangers. We could be lovers, I could hate your guts. We could be in private, we could be in public. I don't care what the situation is, if you're in my personal space uninvited GET OUT. There is no reason to be so close to me unwarranted.


6. You don't know how to comfort people

When you see an upset loved one, most people think they you should comfort then by pulling them into a long lasting hug. But, that's the kind of things that your nightmares are literally made out of. So, you stand there confused how you should comfort your friend/relative while also not sacrificing your touch moral code.


7. When people say you "look like you could use a hug"

Um no. I never could use one, get off of me. I will let you know when I want one.


8. When you're hugging someone wondering how soon you can release

Please end my suffering.


9. When you arrive at a social gathering and people rush to greet you with hugs

Let's not.

10. When you try to leave a social gathering by just waving to get out of goodbye hugs

Please no one make me hug you.


11. That one person who is allowed to hug you/touch you

This person, typically a significant other or best friend, gets to break all the "no touch" rules and we gladly accept their hugs and cuddles and public displays of affection. But only them, no one can copy them.
