city girl New York
You tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
prettier
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.
Warsan Shire, “For Women Who Are Difficult to Love,”  (via sotla)

You’re now stocked on veggies and fruits but…  how long will they last? 

In addition to storing your fruits and veggies properly, it’s good to know approximately how long the fresh stuff will last. Plan your trip to the grocery or farmer’s market accordingly so that your foods are at the peak of freshness when you plan to prepare them, and you’re not throwing away food that’s gone bad before you get a chance to use it!

Girls returns to HBO tonight. Here’s a discussion about the new season, erotic capital, and more, led by five of MoJo’s twentysomething young women. (And here’s a decidedly less generous assessment of the series from our TV and film critic.)
