is john green awesome

Can we go back to romanticizing john green books? Like he is actually the chillest dude and other than being pretentious he hasnt done any bad shit.
Like him and his brother spend so much of their time actively trying to make the world a better place and we take this dude and make him the worst person online like seriously wtf?
He has spoken up about dozens of issues including environmental issues, world health, the treatment of women and he and his brother have a charity that many times a year they actively spend time and effort to raise awareness to our hundreds of issues as a planet.
Like fuck man he is a real good dude and all you need to do to see that is google his name and watch a few videos but u judge people off memes you read on the internet instead of making your own opinion

About a week ago, I received my @projectforawesome mystery perk and you cannot even imagine my surprise when I opened the package to find a prop copy of An Imperial Affliction!!! For those of you who don’t know, The Fault in Our Stars is my favorite book, so receiving Hazel’s favorite book as my perk was such a special moment! I’m so excited to add this to my shelf next to my original edition of The Fault in Our Stars, my target signed edition of The Fault in Our Stars, and my Project for Awesome 2014 exclusive signed edition of The Fault in Our Stars!!

John Green Tells a Story of Emotional Pain and Crippling Anxiety. His Own.
In his new book, “Turtles All the Way Down,” the best-selling young adult novelist addresses a deeply personal subject: anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder.
By Alexandra Alter

Happy Turtles Day!!!! Here’s a really awesome article from the New York Times.

I made a thing of my two favorite brothers. (This is Hank and John Green, you probably know of something they’ve done like Vlogbrothers, John’s books, Hank’s music, Crash Course, Sci Show, VidCon, Dear Hank and John: A Comedy Podcast About Death or countless other things.)

Please do not use my art for anything without my consent.

All of the things I listed above are amazing and if any of you want to check them out hit me up and I’ll get you some links. DFTBA! 

(If anyone is interested I might make this into a phone lockscreen or like desktop thing, so yeah)

My biggest role models and one of their quotations.
  • Demi Lovato: Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. That's my life motto.
  • John Green: The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.
  • Malala Yousafzai: When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.
  • Hank Green: Don’t worry about looking cool. Do you, because you are fantastic.
  • J. K. Rowling: It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.
  • Robin Williams: No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
  • Albert Einstein: The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
  • Kesha: Be yourself. Unapologetically.
  • Bill Gates: We make the future sustainable when we invest in the poor, not when we insist on their suffering.

“Sometimes, you read a book and it 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.”

Dear John Green

Okay I know he’s on tumblr and I am doing this on whim, breaking my anxiety to TRY and get this to him because I just feel like I should do this. I just want to say this;

I’ve read TFIOS and you made me cry. I watch the movie and after both of that, I was storming through my home going, “THIS CANT BE HAPPENING! He can’t die!” I must thank you for writing such a wonderful but heartbreaking book. It was realistic at how even bad things will ruin the most best of things. But even then Good will find a way back.

You made me cry but you also made me laugh and cringe at the best things.

You’ve inspired me and you’ve probably inspired several others to write.

Thank you for writing the book and being you!

Stay Awesome. ^u^
