— Thich Nhat Hanh (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
is there a name for the John green thing. like the obnoxious culture hes pioneered. the 500 days of summer thing, the hazy acoustic soundtracks , the preoccupation w/ sayingn stuff like “im sorry im so fucked up” or “there are no happily ever afters”. how can I quantify this phenomenon. it’s like neo heroin chic or something
I feel like if you categorize (500) Days of Summer or Paper Towns in the same genre as “I’m sorry I’m so fucked up” or “there are no happily ever afters” then you have seriously misunderstood both of those things.
