Seriously kid, I’m not doing your homework for you.

Anonymous said: Hiii, I just wanted to thank u for making this blog. I love John Green and I seriously cant get enough of him!! But why do u post quotes from Paper Towns only? It would be really great if u posted quotes from all of his books. Anyway, thanks again :)

I’ve answered this before, but basically I’m rereading all of his books and picking out quotes myself. I’ve done Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines, and am now on Paper Towns.

Are you trying to get me to do your homework? It feels like you’re trying to get me to do you homework.

The fundamental mistake I had always made—and that she had, in fairness, always led me to make—was this: Margo was not a miracle. She was not an adventure. She was not a fine and precious thing. She was a girl.

This was typical of my parents: in their minds, no one was just an asshole. There was always something wrong with people other than just sucking: they had socialization disorders, or borderline personality syndrome, or whatever.

Awwww, thank you!! I’ve kind of got my hands full between this blog, my main blog, and real life things. But that’s an excellent idea, and someone should do it!

I mean, I could hate you for for being massively unpuntcual and for never being interested in anything other than Margo Roth Spiegelman, and for, like, never asking me about how it’s going with my girlfriend—but I don’t give a shit, man, because you’re you. My parents have a shit ton of black Santas, but that’s okay. They’re them. I’m too obsessed with a reference site to answer my phone sometimes when my friends call, or my girlfriend. That’s okay too. That’s me. You like me anyway. And I like you.

Your party kicked so much ass! Even though you suck so much! It’s like instead of blood, your heart pumps liquid suck! But thanks for the beer!
