Alright, Tumblr, Let's See What You Can Do...

I just found this note in my new copy of The Fault in Our Stars that I bought at Target in Keene, NH today.  For those of you who don’t know, DFTBA = Don’t Forget to be Awesome.

First of all, Azzarinne, I love your name.  :D  And second of all, I’m hoping you have a Tumblr so you can read this thank you.  This note was really sweet and just brightened my day.  Not to mention it spurred me into buying this book figuring, if it’s readers are this awesome, I want in.

So Tumblr, could you work your magic and reblog this, please?  I want to be able to let this person know that this small act of kindness is appreciated.  

And to Azzarinne and everyone else… DFTBA. :)


Hi, I’m not really new here

I used to have a separate blog called Azzarinne. Then Fish Geekery happened. I found myself spending significantly more time on Fish Geekery, and signing in and out was clunky at best on mobile, which is my primary means of accessing Tumblr. More and more of my posts and reblogs on Fish Geekery had nothing to do with fish, and I wasn’t sure how to feel about that. I’m trying to move Fish Geekery toward a professional brand, and having posts about supporting LGBTQ+ rights and economic equality didn’t really fit with that, even if I do whole-heartedly support those things and many others.

The solution: delete the standalone Azzarinne account and recreate it as a secondary blog here.

So here I am. Personal content will go here from now on, and Fish Geekery will actually be about *gasp* FISH! :o


First of all, I’ve been meaning to give you a personal thank you for the note in my John Green book. I never did say that. :) It fell out of my book at me the other day when I was feeling pretty craptastic and it was a nice reminder that there are still awesome people in the world.

I also need to thank you for being, like, one of my most loyal followers. Do you just like everything I post? :P

And now I probably should go back to my job… (Though not really it’s Sunday, nothing’s happening, come on…)
