Procrastinator (some) Times Sunday 22nd of September Edition


EDITORIAL

This week there was tons of things to do in London, but mainly we honoured both procrastination and the autumn-ish weather with a lot of indoors procrastination, that means that we watched a lot of movies, series and documentaries, and that we had the time to read a lot of things on the Internet, but we are recommending and sharing just the best.

Hope you have a nice reading and a happy Sunday.
