In this week’s video, the savvy and wonderful Alan Lastufka teaches you how to start an awesome business! (As the co-founder of DFTBA Records, he has quite a bit of experience in this area.)

(Thanks so much for making this video for us, Alan! You did an A++++ job.)

Hey look, it’s my face!

If you haven’t watched How To Adult before, it’s a show on YouTube that expertly (and entertainingly) teaches all of us scared and confused old kids various life skills. They cover automotive topics, personal finances, career advice, cooking, flirting… basically all the things most of us fail at on a regular basis.

And this week they asked me to guest host and share my knowledge about starting a small business. Hope the video is helpful, and if you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section on YouTube, or ask them here.

During my time in Ethiopia, I met many people who rely on health care outposts like the one seen in the bottom two pictures here. Through these outposts, children and families get vaccines, diagnoses, and treatment for diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia.

But most of these families, and most of their health care facilities, don’t have regular access to clean water. When I asked people about their greatest needs, almost all of them—from the Women’s Health Army volunteers to children—cited clean water first.

More than 45 million Ethiopians live without clean water. I spoke to women who walk miles every other day with heavy jerrycans to get drinking water for their families. The people I met explained how lack of clean water is a health problem, a financial problem, and a family problem.

So for the next week nerdfighteria is teaming up with water.org to raise money to build sustainable wells so that more than 4,000 people in Ethiopia can have clean water. Please join me in donating—or, if you can’t, in spreading the word. Thanks, and DFTBA.

Water.org thanks John Green for his continued support.

That’s a pretty sweet tumblr username, water.org. I can’t believe you guys got “water” and I’m stuck with “fishingboatproceeds.” 

MORE IMPORTANTLY, IF WE GET TO $100,000 BILL GATES WILL MATCH OUR DONATION AND $8,000 PEOPLE IN RURAL ETHIOPIA WILL GET ACCESS TO SAFE WATER THROUGH NEW WELLS. We’ve already raised over $16,000. Thanks, and keep spreading the word!

[[ I hate what Tonks made Remus become. Their relationship was based on her selfishness and it ruined Remus as a person.]]










Does making someone feel worthy of happiness and love ruin their life? The only thing that held Lupin back from being with Tonks at first was the fact that his entire life had consisted of him being viewed as a monster and not worthy of as normal of a life as possible. Especially after having lost all the friends who showed him that he was not as different as society labeled him as and being emotionally broken by that, Lupin was scared that he wasn’t worthy of a relationship. Tonks showed him otherwise. She showed him that he deserved happiness as much as anyone else and brought some light into a life that had been continuously touched by tragedy. A relationship causing happiness to both people involved, especially in the midst of a lot of loss, is not a bad thing, and I personally really enjoy Remus and Tonks as a couple.

So I finally got around to watching ‘His Last Vow’ and I can’t get over just how emotional it was. The relationship between Sherlock and John is just so complex and close and occasionally heart breaking that it’s hard to watch them without getting way too emotional. They’re literally the definition of best friends and seeing just how much they care about each other gives me so many feels.
