What Boys Look For in Girls

We all want to be appreciated…but initial attraction isn’t really based in reality. There’s a really huge audience of very young women on YouTube, and I’m really worried about them basing their self-worth on whether they appeal to guys. That seems to be how the world is set up. I’m a dude, of course, so I’m basing this on what I’ve seen on YouTube and IRL, but I don’t think I’m crazy.

I should have said in the video…this isn’t meant to be relationship advice. There are lots of good people out there with whom to have relationships, but what they’re “looking for” doesn’t necessarily correspond with what they actually want or need. That “love at first sight” moment is pretty much the least interesting moment of a relationship (despite being one of the most exciting.)

Spring is in the air (in some parts of the world…), and that can only mean one thing: It’s time for Accio Books!Over the years, our annual book drive has built libraries in Rwanda, the Mississippi Delta, and New York City. Members like you have collectively donated over 100,000 books. This year, we are thrilled to announce that our primary donation recipient will be the Brightmoor Community Center in Detroit, Michigan. All of the books collected during the drive will be catalogued by our University of Michigan chapter, The Whomping Wolverines, and in September they will be given away for free to members of the Brightmoor community during an appearance of our Apparating Library at Brightmoor’s annual Back To School Rally.You also have the option to donate locally or join up with your local chapter to see where they’re donating this year. No matter how or where you donate books, be sure to log them for points in our annual House Cup.

Will Ravenclaw win again? Will we beat our record of 30,000 book donations from last year? Will Tom Hiddleston hear about our campaign and personally donate one thousand books? 
THE GAME, DEAR WIZARDS, IS ON!



Hey nerds! Have some books lying around that could use a better home? Want to get together with other nerdfighters and make a positive impact on your community? Wanna be real cool?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, why not collect books to donate either locally or to the HPA’s Apparating Library in Detroit?
More info will be coming shortly on how nerdfighters can join magical forces with the HPA for good during this drive, but for now, get talking in your local nerdfighter groups and brainstorm up some ways that you can work together to collect books to donate, either as a collective, or as part of an HPA chapter, if there’s one near you.
Hooray!

I found it very touching and I think the nerdfighters should see it :)

It’s a song the Youtuber Troye Sivan wrote after he read TFIOS and it is very nicely done (well in my opinion ^^)

DFTBA Renée

If y’all haven’t heard Troye’s TFIOS song yet, you are truly missing out.

I Gotta Go: Signing Off and Thinking about Inspiration

In which John discusses inspiration and how sometimes think you don’t even remember can shape what you do and how you go about doing it. Along the way, he discusses Ian Shoales (aka Ian Schoales), a public radio commentator with whom Hank and John were obsessed. Also: John calls Hank and attempts to broadly define art. Furthermore: Husky voice.

The Great Goose Migration

I’m not even joking…this video is actually about me and my wife going to the Rocky Mountain Front to observe migrating geese and I AIN’T EVEN SORRY!

The Music is a song by The Leewards that was never released to the public. They’re a band that a friend of mine was in from 2001 to 2005, you can get their second album on Bandcamp for free (or pay for it, because it’s great http://leewards.bandcamp.com/.) This song was on their first album, which was never released so, like, only a few dozen people have ever heard this song before.

And now, because of this video, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people will hear it! That’s REALLY WEIRD!

I find it very strange that there is so much wonderful music in the world that no one will ever hear again….just lost…forever…like a goose in the wind. ALL WE ARE IS GEESE IN THE WIND!

So Jokes (Accio Deathly Hallows Edition) by FakeJohnGreen
HEY ALL! A week and a half is all the time we have left to collect signatures on the petition asking Hank Green to Vlog Accio Deathly Hallows Every Day in April (VADHEDA) (because, you know, then it will be April).
So far, almost 400 of you have lent your names and voices to the cause, and that is awesome, but we need MORE SIGNATURES! Help get the word out, y’all. Persuade Hank to sing the same song 30 times.
