So, I’ve been getting a lot of asks over the last few months asking why I strongly dislike TFIOS by John Green as much as I do. And for the most part, all the recent askers have been surprisingly polite, considering the more aggressive ones I’ve received in the past on the subject. Anyway, I’ve answered a bunch of them separately, but I’ve decided to condense all of my theories, opinions and arguments into one succinct post.

Can you guess how much we missed Chinese food during our trip? Steak is delicious, alligator is novel, and crab cakes are yumm but they can’t compare with Chinese hot pot #food #hotpot (at Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot, Edison 小肥羊)
Au revoir New York! (Aren’t the porthole windows adorable though?) (still glad to be back in my own bed now)
