Quote of the Day: ‘Us’ and ‘Them’

So, I’ve kinda been on a John Green/Nerdfighteria kick lately. (possibly caused by rereading TFIOS and also presenting my final speech for my Public Speaking class on Nerdfighteria) But anyway, this quote from John is just great.

“There is no ‘Them’, there are only facets of ‘Us’.”

-John Green

DFTBA my friends.

A Very Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday everyone!!!! And this week I actually mean it! Today marks the end of finals week, and the end of this semester of school. Hopefully this means that I will be back to posting every day. Anyway, here are three of the things that I am thankful for.

#1. Pizza Party

For my last final of the week, my Public Speaking class, the professor decided to surprise us with Pizza Hut pizza. This was already my favorite class of the semester, and it was a perfect way to end the semester.

#2. Supernatural

I have been a Supernatural fan for many years. I have just recently got Jake hooked, and so now I have an excuse to rewatch the entire series yet again. (Not that that’s stopped me before, but still.)

#3. TFIOS

A couple weeks ago I was shopping with my grandpa at a bookstore. I was looking through the John Green books, (sometimes Nerdfighters stick awesome notes in them), when I came across a SIGNED COPY OF THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. I am not ashamed to have done a little happy dance in the store. My grandpa bought it for me as an early Christmas gift. It was just about the greatest thing anyone could have gotten me this year. The only thing that could have made it better was if it had been a Hanklerfish copy. (One in which Hank Green also drew an anglerfish next to John’s signature.)

Quote of the Day: The Fault in Our Stars

Yesterday I reread The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green, in one sitting. If you have read it, you know how I feel right now. If you haven’t, well, I will leave you with two quotes from the book to give you an idea. (But you should totally read the book, just saying.)

“Sometimes you read a book that fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, ¬†and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

And:

“That’s the thing about pain. It demands to be felt.”

John Green is my all time favorite author, and if you haven’t read any of his work, you should stop what you are doing right now and drive to your nearest library or bookstore, get his books and start reading immediately. (Unless it’s snowing, like it is here, in which case just go on Amazon instead.)
