John Green's tumblr: The Commencement Address

fishingboatproceeds:

Some people have asked to read the commencement address I delivered this morning to the 2013 graduates of Butler University. So here it is.

My own commencement speaker, who shall remain nameless, began with a lame joke about how these speeches only come in two varieties: Short and bad. This…

No no no no no John green. No thanks. I’m tired of crying when you speak (write) especially since I’m not even sure if I agree with you sometimes. You’re making me cry and you’re making me think about things and I just want to be a college grad who has no idea what the hell is going on. STOP JOHN GREEN. Go back to writing or reblogging stuff or hanging out with your unborn child AND LEAVE US IN PEACE

I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is…… 

so that’s pretty much what I’m expecting to experience for the next like 10 years.

the accuracy of this post is alarming.

“Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an an enormous reward. You will have created something.”

—   Kurt Vonnegut
