I don’t understand why we teach little kids to be explicit about what makes them upset, or to talk about their feelings to other kids if they get hurt. Because as we get older, we don’t do that, and we hold silent grudges and we get angry at someone for trying to voice their feelings if they “inconvenience” us.

I have never read a John Green novel.

But I would care a lot more about critiques of him if any of the people I’ve seen shitting on him had actually read a John Green novel either.

Or pretty much anything that has ever come out of his mouth.

It’s really disgusting that people accuse John Green, a writer with clinical depression and anxiety to the point of it being very disabling at different times of his life, as someone who might romanticize and encourage teen suicide.

As an aside, I love his self awareness about his own writing. That shit is hard to do.

On the existence of his crash course videos alone, which provide free, accessible, consistent, intersectional, and quality higher level education to anyone with an internet connection (which is a fucking revolutionary concept and execution and should not be treated lightly) I am forever a fan of this man.

I’m still going through his books and his videos, and I’m still learning about him, but one thing that I can for sure tell you is that he is a very self-conscious writer and he actively strives to be a better human being and author. Which is so wonderful because he also encourages that in his viewers and his readers. He understands his position as not only a white, male author, but also as a person with a lot of power on the internet. And he does his best to use that power for other people. 

To think that he’s doing this in the face of external antagonism while dealing with the internal is just so heroic and amazing.

you are two hours ahead of me, and much too far away

sunday morning parade. sleeping through church and state.
you could be my wife if i could be less a jerk.
and i could be your husband with a whole lot of work.

"well i’m just a bear who’s lost his rollerskate key.
"well, you remember that episode, i remember you and me."
kissing during commercials is all i’d ever really need.

i wrote this song over ten years ago. still oddly topical.
