a pretty fun vlog series + college advice + good books

If you don't know 'em, John and Hank Green are brothers who have a pretty famous vlog on youtube. I have been following them since they first started this series in 2006, and they never cease to amaze me. John is one of my favorite.. okay he's my favorite.. young adult authors. I can always tell how well I'll get along with a student personally based on what they have to say about his works. Seriously, he's awesome. I say he's a young adult novelist, but really, you should read his books, too. He's awesome.

To get started, I would read Looking for Alaska. Then for a humorous break, I would read An Abundance of Katherines. If I had a gay teenager in my life, I would have him or her read Will Grayson, Will Grayson. If I didn't have a gay teenager in my life, but they had a really open sense of humor, I would still give him or her Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

Anyway. I have been thinking about all my sweet cheribs whom just graduated from high school and are getting excited/nervous about going off to college. I remembered this video and watned to share it with you. It's a good taste of John's sense of humor, and you may have someone in your life you would like to share it with, too!

Enjoy :)


  1. Hah! That was pretty funny. I love the part when he talks about making new friends - lol. :)

  2. I love John Green so much. I probably have an unofficial personality crush on him. I mean he's just so witty!
