That was back in December, when I texted my friend - an equally massive fan of John Green's work - who replied with a lot of capital letters and exclamations marks and after a nerve-racking 20 minutes involving a slow computer and an overworked booking system, I was the holder of two tickets to the hottest book event in town. I was going to see John Green in a fancy hall in Chelsea, London with two very good friends. And Hank Green would be there *faints*
(Sorry about the quality of the photos! The lights kind of drowned out the stage on my camera)
Fast forward exactly 6 weeks and I was walking down the ever-so-posh Sloane Street on the way to Cadogan Hall for the John Green event fangirling already with my friend. Now, for those that don't know this area of London, Sloane Street is a shopping street in the heart of London, near Kensington, Knightsbridge and the King's Road (which Kate Middleton went shopping down the day before her wedding). However, I won't be shopping there because EVERY SHOP WAS A DESIGNER SHOP. Literally, all these teenagers were going to a John Green event in one of the poshest areas of London, something I found a little funny.

If you haven't read The Fault In Our Stars yet, you need to right now. I have never read anything so perfect.
