John Green Live Tweets While Watching The Fault In Our Stars And It's Everything!
The DVD copy of the movie of the decade (okay, we're totes assuming but still!), The Fault In Our Stars, came out recently. We thought we'd be done with it, expecting a few deleted scenes from the movie surfacing online every now and then. But looks like we set our expectations too low.
Yesterday, TFIOS author John Green and the Twitter-verse had the #TFIOSParty—"a global Twitter viewing party of TFIOS." They played their copies at the same time and watched the movie together while live tweeting their feelings about the scenes.
TFIOS's DVD copy includes a few scenes that didn't make it to the theater version—like the part where Gus (Ansel Elgort) and Hazel (Shailene Woodley) sold the swing set online and John's cameo in the airport before our beloved characters boarded the plane to Amsterdam. During the #TFIOSParty, John also shared a few interesting things about particular scenes. Here are 5 of our favorites:
1. On that thick copy of An Imperial Affliction Hazel had.
And there are the pages of An Imperial Affliction I wrote. #TFIOSparty The book is just the same four pages printed over and over again.— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 20, 2014
2. On the "take pot" joke.
That "take pot" joke was told to me by a South African artist in Venice. I stole it from him. #TFIOSparty— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 20, 2014
3. On Hazel's bra's color.
Hazel's purple bra. Everyone in my books has purple bras. I don't even know why. I have no particular fondness for purple. #TFIOSparty— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 20, 2014
4. On Isaac's (Nat Wolff) "wild" scene after breaking up with Monica.
...and he completely ignored it and ripped up that nice family's mantle, and I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize. #TFIOSparty— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 20, 2014ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
5. On filming inside the Anne Frank House.
TFIOS was the first feature film ever granted access to the Anne Frank House. (The board liked the book.) So grateful to them. #TFIOSparty— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 20, 2014
And of course the John Green just had to tweet about his cameo. Of course.
OH LOOK ITS ME IT'S MY CAMEO. #TFIOSparty— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 20, 2014
DO THEY GIVE OUT OSCARS FOR BEST AUTHOR CAMEO NOT TO MAKE IT INTO THE ACTUAL MOVIE BECAUSE IF SO I AM A SHOO IN. #TFIOSparty— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 20, 2014
The rest of the movie is a letdown. All other performances are just so bland after seeing the work of Girl's Father, aka me. #TFIOSparty— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 20, 2014

Hi everyone! I just want to share my first collaboration with my father. I converted two of my digital arts, Oneness and We Got Each Other's Back, into a vase and a bookend. I designed it and he made it into a reality. The Oneness Metal Vase is perfect for dried flowers and or artificial flowers. The We Got Each Other's Back Bookend is made from solid metal in which the cubes can be arranged to the user's liking. Both metal sculptures work as an accent piece that can liven up one's space.

Imagine you are holding a photograph. There, there you are. A 5-year-old you is being carried by her momma and papa while holding your rag dolls. That innocent, charming little girl is looking at you and said, "Where are you now?"
Life is filled with several U-turns and unexpected twists of events and during these times in which silver spoons are nowhere to be found: Our families ensure we still get and experience the best as we survive this pandemic. Here's my song, I wrote back 2 years ago entitled: "Won't Let You Cry" and take time to honor and appreciate our parents as they are the biggest front liners in our lives throughout the years.
If you're still single now, there are probably a a lot of questions running in your head. But being on your own for a long time helps you discover more about yourself. It's more than just freedom or independence. It's facing the world with so much courage. It's trying to make the most of your life without having to depend on someone. It's being happy on your own and loving yourself with all that you are.
We've been chasing love only to realize that it's not gonna work out that way. The right time will come that you will be blessed with the one you deserve. The one who also prayed to be with you. The one who will make you believe in love again. Let life surprise you. Hang in there.
The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.
Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.
Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.
For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?
Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
Literally to begin with, I am writing with little shaky hands because this is the last time I went for a vacation like most of us must have and can’t plan any for now. The coronavirus outbreak has compelled us to stay at home for our safety and others in the vicinity.
I remember how I penned down my year 2020 to be the most remarkable year of my life in the hope of doing everything I desired for a long time and overcoming few obstacles. Whilst planning things ahead, I forgot to truly value all of things in the present.
I remember being chipper and grateful for my last summer vacation but now I feel I should’ve valued each and every moment. Considering the current gnarly situation, I want each one us to motivate ourselves to look for a positive side and to make the most of our time no matter the situation.
Make a promise to yourself that you won’t give up in these circumstances and reckon that there are a lot of good things for us in the store. We’ll have the most amazing season of our life post pandemic. Let’s accept for the change and become the change. Propagate love and only love.
