Well, I’m extremely late to the party as usual, but The Fault in Our Stars was wonderful.
It was such a good film that I had to come home and blog about it. I think that it actually eclipsed the book. Really beautifully done, and Ansel Elgort played Augustus Waters perfectly. He was absolutely spot on.
I am very aware that I am talking about this on Tumblr, and so it is a virtual impossibility that you haven’t been to see it at least twice. I doubt that you’ll be disappointed anyway, although I must warn you that if you were upset with the book, then the film will fucking BREAK you.
"What’s been your greatest accomplishment?" "That time I had a job and a place to stay."
Early twenties, world is our oyster, we can be as wild as we desire with very few consequences. What do we do?
My mates and I shall of course play board games, blow bubbles for several hours, and embark upon nightfall quests for filthy discarded items that contain nothing but a faded message.
I still don’t understand quite why it works, but I always have a good time with those guys.
01: tell me the truth, what made you start liking the person you like right now? The main reason is entirely selfish, but he motivates the hell out of me. He is by far the most driven and ambitious person I’ve ever met, always up to something or working on a project. Not that he’d be arsed, but I remember being really embarrassed to tell him that I’d spent my day doing nothing whatsoever, and would always try to get something on the go to impress him. He makes me a better version of myself.
02: what on your body is hurting or bothering you? My ankle. It’s been bad for over a year now, and nobody can figure out why. It’s really fucking with me and I’m beginning to wonder if it’s psychological.
03: what was your last thought before going to bed last night? Some derivative of, “I’m getting too old for this shit”. It was lovely to spend the weekend down south with good friends, but being on top of each other for three days really drained me. I hadn’t really slept since 5am on Friday, and ended up gaining a hideous superflu because I keep doing stuff and my body is shutting down on me.
