There are lots of good people out there with whom to have relationships, but what they’re “looking for” doesn’t necessarily correspond with what they actually want or need. That “love at first sight” moment is pretty much the least interesting moment of a relationship (despite being one of the most exciting.)

Hank Green is in excellent trolling form tonight.

It makes being inexplicably awake at 3:30 AM so much more enjoyable.

I think the “Giraffe Sex-Thoughts from Places problem” is literally the best name for a problem ever. Can you imagine Hank and John sitting around going, “You know, we really need to get around to solving the Giraffe Sex-Thoughts from Places problem.” Genius.

PS.

Sorry for the Evening of Awesome reblog spam. I’m just so emotional still.

So here’s the story of why my best friend never forgets to be awesome.
I knew she was in an airport and I suggested she pull a Hank Green and Go to Isengard while being bored in an airport coming back from NCTE. And then she did. Because she is amazing.

PS. Yes, her facebook picture is her and Scott Westerfeld doing the nerdfighter sign. Yet another reason why she never forgets to be awesome.

So I decided I was rewatch all the vlogbrothers videos…

… because that destresses me. I started about a week ago watching when I’m not frantically trying to finish being a college student in four months. But I just finished Brotherhood 2.0.

Thoughts: 
I forgot how much I loved Accio Deathly Hallows until I found myself jumping around and singing it. Also, John’s last video still almost makes me cry.

On to 2008! DFTBA!

One of my very favorite Vlogbrothers videos. If you are not yet a nerdfighter, click here or here and become one. It’s the very best part of life.

Knightstown, Indiana

"It’s easy to feel nostalgic in Knightstown with it’s paint-chipped gazebo and it’s ‘I don’t believe in ghosts but that mansion is definitely haunted’ mansions but Knightstown has a present and a future as well as its past, which is something we tend to forget about in Small Town America. Someday that little girl will decide if she wants to be part of this town’s future or if she wants to indulge in the great american pasttime of lighting out for the territories, but we don’t yet know what she’ll decide or what it’ll mean for Kinghtstown."
 - John Green in this Thoughts from Places video

I KNOW! She’s going to be a zombie. See?

Goddammit DFTBA Records.

Stop putting out things I want. I’m trying to be a fiscally responsible college student and you’re making it shockingly difficult to not buy things. I swear last night I found myself thinking “Hm. I didn’t die today, maybe I should get that Daisy Buchanan shirt as a reward.” And that’s not okay.

But in all seriousness, you guys are awesome. Thanks for not forgetting.

I think this video has created the best feelings I’ve had about the whole cycle of sadness/anger/backlash/hope/confusion that is Kony 2012 since it started. Thank you for putting everything into perspective, Hank.

I think my housemates are getting a bit annoyed…

… I start way too many replies to their stories with, “In the words of John Green…”

Like all great cities, Amsterdam brims with contradictions. Maps of the red light district are dominated by a church. Swans swim up the canal while on the banks of that canal a woman stands half naked in front of a glass door waiting for customers. Amsterdam is both the city that hid Anne Frank and the city that gave her up. An ancient city perpetually experiencing new construction. A city full of boats that separate you from water and contain water. These same contradictions are in all of us, or, they’re in me, at least. And so I forgot that I’d been awake for thirty hours and kept walking, grateful to be a little boat full of water, still floating.

My Astronomy 150 TA took us to UW’s planetarium today and someone asked a question about the shape of the universe

Seattle Tour de Nerdfighting

was amazing. There’s really no other way to describe it. I had so much fun singing and dancing and laughing with my friend and everyone there. John was hilarious (am I the only one who finds Odyssey jokes funny?) and Hank was awesome (Hank sock and ANGLERFISH). And all the questions from the audience made me remember why I love being a part of nerdfighteria so much.

The signing line, however, was embarrassing. I mean, I had this whole speech planned out about how much John makes me feel good about being an English major and that I feel like I can really do something productive with my education and how Hank has taught me more about science and life than I could have ever hoped from YouTube, but when I got up there my brain did this:


I kid you not. Nothing came out but “Hi, yes, I had a great time, thank you” with many awkward pauses and inability to make eye contact. So I apologize, to the Green Brothers, for sounding so much like an idiot. And for the horrible run on sentences in the paragraphs above but I am too tired to fix it. Overall, AMAZING EXPERIENCE and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
