Food waste is the world’s dumbest problem

“Khalid! ”my mom screams from the kitchen. “Come here!”

I roll out of bed, grinning. I should be angry, I guess. And also scream something like “Fuck you, mom! I don’t want to!”. At least, that’s what teens in American movies do. I’ve been watching a couple of those lately…

What I learned from Will Grayson, Will Grayson (by John Green and David Levithan)

Fiction Friday

She visits the Graveyard every day, slowly carrying her tiny frame over the hill and through the thicket of tall shrubs and oak trees, where — just over a tiny slope — the grassy fields break out into the knee-high, muss-covered stone wall.
