dear john green,
I just watched twenty plus minutes of you lecturing on a book I thought I understood, and not to my surprise, I did not understand the book I spent two weeks of my life on.
After reading I am the messenger by Zusak, I decided (due to it's mentioning of Sylvia Plath) that I was going to read the classics of modern literature. I confided with a teacher my desire and took the little red notebook to his book shop in hope of be enlightened.
I was. I learned…Continue

About three things I was absolutely positive.
First, the Doctor was a Time Lord.
Second, there was part of him — and I didn't know how potent that part might be — that thirsted for my company.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.…Continue
When I was about thirteen, maybe fourteen, my BFF announced that he'd conceived of a science fiction novel whose main protagonist was named Paine. He was a military man with the rank of Major, thus making him Major Paine. That summer, a stupid film I'm tempted to call black-sploitation came out by the name of Major Payne. I was with him when we both saw the trailer. It was funny (for the wrong reasons) and…Continue

Let's say, you know someone who wants to get a tattoo, but not just any kind of tattoo of say, a bird or something, she wants to get a tattoo of a swastika. Freaky, right? It doesn't end there though, she also wants it to symbolize the pride she has for being white.
Before you raise your hands in the air and scream from the top of your deflatable lungs "RACISM!" There is one thing that I want you to think about, and it is what you are allowed to have pride in. Is it something you did…Continue

So I recently bought Looking for Alaska, when I was on vacation in Glasgow.
I'd meant to read it for years.
And I didn't start reading until I was back home.
And as I opened the book, out fell this letter.
And here's what it said:…Continue

In which I try to tell you a little about who I am and what I do, and succeed at neither. The next one will have a real subject though, I promise!
The main reason I'm starting this up is to improve my public speaking really, or maybe just my speaking in general. When I'm watching accomplished youtubers I can't help but notice how engaging…Continue

Mohammed Morsi won 51% of the…Continue
