Since my university life is getting pretty busy, I decided to leave you with another episode of, “Your Grammar Sucks” by Jacksfilms. These never fail to make me laugh, and push me to be extra aware of what I post online. I’m hoping these videos are encouraging all people to double- check what they post. Nobody is required to have perfect grammar online, but it should be readable, and it shouldn’t make myself and others cringe.
I hope everyone is having a good week, and to remember to take breaks from their busy schedules!
“The Fault in Our Stars”, by John Green is a book about a teenage girl named Hazel who has been diagnosed with lung cancer. She is hesitant to go to a support group, but decided it would be good for her. She finds herself meeting a boy named Augustus, and goes through many experiences with him. This is all I’m going to say about this book, because it is absolutely brilliant and it is a must read. John Green found a way to write an emotional book that tugs at your heart, but at the same time writes with incredible witt and humor.
Last summer I attended an event in California called Vidcon, which is a convention for the YouTube community to come together and meet and watch their favourite YouTube stars in person. John Green, and his brother Hank Green organize this event, and are also famous and respected YouTubers. I had the opportunity to go to a meetup where John and Hank talked about their career and experiences, as well as answered questions from audience members. John Green is not only a very talented author, but also a positive role model for many people.
This book is also being made into a movie, and is expected to be released in the summer 2014. If you ever get a chance to read this book, or go to a meetup with John Green, I would highly recommend it!
