In December 2008 I saw Hank and John at Metro State University in St. Paul.
My girlfriend at the time (Ellen) couldn’t come, so I drew her as a platypus and brought her to get signed by the vlogbrothers.
Do they remember signing a platypus? Probably not.
But how do you know when you’re an adult?
You don’t. We pretend like we live in a world of harsh edges, but there are no harsh edges, there are no borders between these things. Those hard lines are all imaginary and they’re just created for convenience. Whether it’s loving or growing up or raising a child or having a job, these aren’t destinations, they’re not achievements to unlock. Life isn’t a video game, it’s a journey. Everything is a journey and we get to travel it together.
