This is a Thoughts from places of how Argentina lost the final of the world cup.

"People alone are beautiful, but nothing is more precious than the beauty that happens when people come together."

I’ve always loved John and Hank Green’s “Thoughts from Places” videos, and nothing prompted a video of my own quite like a trip to the Windy City. The adventures of three University of Michigan students in beautiful Chicago, Illinois.

Feel free to like and/or reblog! :)

Two videos in one week? Must be because of the new Esther Day campaign!

Intern Celine had the opportunity to go to the TFIOS press release and see the movie last month through a fancy shmancy Tumblr meetup. Check out her Thoughts From Places video on the event and her connection with The Fault In Our Stars book.


On the TFIOS Movie Set

In which John checks in from the set of the TFIOS movie. Look behind the scenes at all the hardworking people who are making this movie a real thing in the world.


Thoughts from Bath: The Legacy of Wealth

In which Hank hangs out with Charlie in Charlie’s home town. Charlie pretty much said “I won’t take you to Bath if you don’t make a Thoughts from Places video about it.” So, yeah, this was a required assignment. :-)

Charlie’s mum:


Thoughts from Places: Dog Days of Summer

In which Hannah questions if she is ready for some form of commitment… Or maybe it’s just puppy love. (for comedy) (for all the feelz)


Poetry Makes Nothing Happen: Thoughts on Ai Weiwei from the Indianapolis Museum of Art

Sarah does not appear in vlogbrothers videos, but you can follow her on tumblr: 

In which John visits the Indianapolis Museum of Art, where his wife is a curator, and thinks about the work of the artist and dissident Ai Weiwei while walking through “According to What,” his first major retrospective in the United States. If you live in or near Indianapolis, you should really see the show. It’s very special, and will be here until July 21st.


The Space Time Continuum: Thoughts from Dublin

In which Hank and John and Katherine walk around Dublin and Hank thinks about how we are all but a part of a magnificent continuum that stretches back around four billion years…depending on how you think about it. 

Dublin was beautiful and exciting and careful and thoughtful and I really wish I could have spent more time there. It was pretty hard to choose what thoughts I’ve had to turn into this video…I had about seven ideas for Thoughts from Places videos…that’s just what being on a trip like this does to you. There’s so much to think about! Too bad we’re DEAD TIRED!

But this idea was overwhelmingly interesting to me, and has hit me really hard on this trip. I also got to see Charles Darwin’s grave who was the man who figured out that just as individuals are a continuum of events, life is a continuum of species, all inter-related. A city is a series of events, ideas, constructions and occurrances, just like a human life…just like all life, and just like all culture and even all technology. 

Being in a place where those continuums are more obvious (especially to someone who does not always see them) it feels very special and inspiring and exciting to be a part of the human endeavor.


Headless Statues and Elton John’s Piano: Seeing Sights in London (Thoughts from Places)

In which John discusses his first 24 hours in London including: interviews with the BBC, playing Elton John’s piano, jetlag, improbable weather, Steven Gerrard’s signature, the British Museum, the Rosetta Stone, many headless statues of women, YA book covers, Egyptian relics, statues, nonexistent stone artwork, the Globe theater, the Tower Bridge, and many other sites of London.



In which Hank visits the Philip L Wright Zoological Museum. Ze asked us to talk about what makes our places special…I couldn’t think of a better way.
