I tell myself that it’s just the weather, that after I break out of my winter doldrums I will happily waltz into the Washington Sports Club every day at 5:30 pm and get in shape for (eek) bikini season. Of course I will.
As the episode continued, the sight of Lena Dunham in the green bikini became less shocking. We began to notice other things about the character – and even forgot that she was wearing a bathing suit at one point.
Lena Dunham may be atypical of the standard image that Vogue serves up, but that does not mean that she cannot be fashionable and stylish and on trend.
Few things are as infuriating as realizing that the thing you want most of all is something you never thought you’d want.
Other people expect 20-somethings to be messy. They expect us to be sloppy and awkward and gangly because in their hearts, they know they were, too.
“Don’t waste time on guilt, Hannah. Holding on to toxic relationships is what keeps us from growing.”
If you have roommates, don’t clutch the pearls when it’s their day of the week to dance around in their underwear. When you sign a lease with a person, there is an unwritten agreement that you will be okay with the sight of them without pants.
Not all female friendships are founded on malicious competitiveness, jealousy and resentment. Some of us actually really care about each other.

During the show, I said to my friends, “I don’t get why people are so mad about this show, seems fun and harmless.”
