some things you may have not known about The Fault In Our Stars
- Augustus’ name symbolizes water. obviously, there is a lot of water in the book, it is nourishing and reviving and it symbolizes the doctors taking away the water out of Hazel’s lungs
- the reason why Augustus always calls hazel, “Hazel Grace” is because in one point of the book Hazel tells him that she likes people with two names, so simultaneously Augustus calls her, Hazel Grace.
- On the plane when they are watching 300, Augustus’ movie starts and ends first, and it foreshadows his death.
- Isaac (according to John Green) was not named Isaac because his eyes are sick, ha ha ha, but because in other references, Isaac’s are old men who live to tell the tale’s of star crossed lovers and other heroic adventures.
- In one point of the book, Gus says to Hazel “You used to call me Augustus”. Basically, Augustus is a strong name, it’s healthy and stable. Hazel, without even realizing it, starts calling him Gus, which is weaker and more unstable when he tells her of his cancer.
- Augustus and Anne Frank have very similar coincidences. He had cancer and he underwent an operation to hopefully cure him of his cancer, only to die. And Anne Frank went into hiding with the hope of being free, but ended up dying. And it’s also not a coincidence that they made out in the Anne Frank house.
aoi-tora asked: Don't forget you can vent to me when it becomes too much. I'm right here and I always will be.
Thank you. But unfortunately drawing wasn’t enough & talking was impossible.

Supposed to be studying for two midsem exams coming up. So screwed for both but procrastination has gotten the best of me.
Feeling shit but don’t know why. Well maybe I do and I’m just trying to deny and push the thoughts away? I don’t know…
Picked up my pencil again after so long and just randomly drawing to try to clear my mind and calm myself down.
Stay strong; we can get through this.

Had an early start to my day today; left home for work at 6:30am & got there around 7:00am
-_-‘ And work finished so late that day! Boss was running late & we had so much work left to do so I ended up finishing 2 hours later than usual.
So after work, I drove up towards uni to meet up with the boyfriend and we headed out for dinner; korean bbq! mmhhmmm :D
Dessert was a toss between froyo & max brenners; thought we should wash down all that fat so we went with froyo ^^
Next, we headed off to ice skating. He spent two whole hours trying to teach me, but that failed…
Biggest fear: falling down face first; like common, my asian face is flat enough as it already is LOL -_-’
Anyways, thank you for being so patient trying to teach me hahaa. If that was me trying to teach myself, I would have given up already…
Headed back to our cars which were parked at uni. We ended up playing soccer there in the car park on the roof top…
He had enough of getting beaten by me so we headed back home :P
Boyfee came over at around 11:30am and we went out for some brunch; snack pack!
After brunch, we went out for putt putt; it was so packed with little kiddies on their school holidays! -_-‘
Putt putt was great; I surprised myself by not losing the ball! :D Okays, maybe I lost it once…but just once.
He’s got style…
After putt putt, headed back home and took a nice nap only to be awakened by my mother swinging my door open 2 hours later.
But thanks mum; we might not have woken up at all if it wasn’t for her & would have missed our dinner reservation :$
So we got ready and drove off to the city for dinner at Braza - Brazilian bbq. Omgg was gonna die from the meat overload; so yummaaay!
After dinner, we headed off for some poool for about an hour before heading back home.
Not only did I have an amazing past two nights or an amazing past two weeks, but it’s been an unforgettable past seven months with this wonderful guy!
Happy seven months, hun! Thank you for absolutely everything; all the memories; all the fun & laughter; I just can’t thank you enough! ♥

It’s amazing how this one guy had turned my messed up month around in just a week.
Starting from week three of uni up until the beginning of this week, I pretty much hit rock bottom, living it day by day, lost and confused. The most frustrating part was that I could not figure out a reason & every little thing that happened just added on and on.
The transition from week two to week three was huge, remembering how excited and bubbly I was during the first two weeks of uni; excited for a whole new year; excited to start the science part of my course; but then this all changed to being down & broken almost every single day.
During the day, I’d just attend classes, be normal around people and only get the required work done. But at nights were when things got worse. I would think that I had an alright day, but then I’d end up breaking down almost every single day later that night.
I wasn’t even bothered to go that extra step to do my own work. This affected my studies causing me to stress out & did every assignment last minute. We’re not even talking about ‘last minute’ where it’s the night before & I’d finish it that night, ready to hand it in the next day. But we’re talking about ‘last minute’, starting on the due day & finishing it just an hour or so before the due time.
Actually, thinking about it now, “whatta bawss!” Hahaa, okays better not keep that up… -_-‘
My relationship was also affected, adding on to everything else that was already on my mind. This was probably by far the worse month for the both of us but we held on strong & got through it all.
Being busy and occupied with uni didn’t help either. We both knew we had to really focus on our work since we can’t afford to be failing already… And this is why our parents tell us, “No bf/gf while studying! (Or I’ll kill you! I’ll kill the both of you!)” Hahaa, jooookes! (Or am I…)
But hey, if we could juggle studying & a relationship, then we can get through anything!
It wasn’t until this week where we were able to slack off uni a bit as mid semester break is coming up.
So after my prac on Monday, I headed over to his house where we cooked and had dinner together. I headed home early that night because I knew the next day I’d be over again to stay a few nights.
The plan for Tuesday was for me to catch a train to his place, but as I opened the door ready to leave my house, I was shocked to see him there in my driveway, bright and early! The fool traveled through two hours of traffic just to pick me up! We headed off for some hotcakes and did a little shopping before heading back to his place.
Wednesday morning came & I got up at 7am to get ready for work. I usually just rush off to work in the mornings without having breakfast, but not that morning; as I was about to head downstairs, he comes up to me with breakfast; a great start to my day. I finished work at around 1pm that day so I came back to have lunch with him. Later that evening, we popped out to do some shopping and decided to make sushi that night for dinner. LOL did he fail! :P
We tried getting some work done on Thursday & spent the rest of the day just ceebing.
By Friday, we had no food left in the house & I had to go to work for a whole day. He still made sure that I had lunch with me so he packs me a lunch box and can I just say, best lunch ever! ^^
I finished work late that night so on the way back, I popped by KFC to grab us dinner. After dinner, we both headed off to uni for his bball game then the night ended after he dropped me home. The car ride got pretty quiet & I got pretty worried because I knew he was exhausted & had work the next day. But I know that when he’s tired, he gets pretty cranky so I just left him. And thank gawd he didn’t call me that night cause I accidently fell asleep waiting for his call :P
Today he came over after work and we headed out with my mum and brother to the temple for Cambo/Laos New Year.
Headed off to the Cambo temple first, where we just grabbed some food, ate and walked around. There’s not much there anymore; same every year.
Then we headed off to our friend’s place across the road to just chat. While the adults were chatting, we and our other friends headed off to the Laos temple; it was so packed there! So we played a game (sort of like raffles) & trust my luck to win a can of tuna and three bars of soap! -_-’ Hahaa, the look on his face; “trust my gf…”
Well at least, it’s the soap you use LOL!
With not much left to do, we headed back & chilled there for another hour or so before heading home.
Sadly, once we got back to my place, he had to leave for an early day tomorrow :(
But that’s okay, because the past week has just been absolutely amazing!
Waking up every morning to his face, spending the whole day with him just lazing around comfortably in our pjs, cooking together, snuggling in front of the television every night (along with three dogs!) and just taking care of each other like a real couple (well, more like he was taking care of me! ^^)
So thanks hun; thank you for the past amazing week; thank you for all those surprises; thank you for all your efforts; thank you for being patient and understanding; thank you for holding on & not letting go; from the bottom of my heart, just thank you ♥
I’m not fine as in fine, but fine as in you don’t have to worry about me.
