Still don't know if I'm hungry, or just bored.

23 Struggles of the Hungry Human

Having a bottomless pit for a stomach is definitely a tough lifestyle, but it's also got to be the most wonderful aspect of being a human. Here are some struggles all people who love to eat often face.

1. First of all, becoming "hangry" is a real thing.

An easily fixable problem, I don't think there is anything that makes me more upset than not eating.

2. You don't mind planning a night out with friends because you can pick where to go that you'll be closest to your favorite places to eat.

3. The struggle never ends because your stomach is a bottomless pit.

4. Waiting for food at a restaurant is complete agony.

5. The worst part of eating out is watching your waiter take food to a table other than yours.

6. It stinks when everyone at your table gets their food, and you still have to wait.

7. Even more atrocious is having to wait to eat when you're the first to receive it.

8. And then, people expect you to sit and eat like a civilized human.

9. When your friend makes you wait to eat because they need to position your plates to make a perfect, artsy instagram photo.

10. You don't understand people who don't eat breakfast. Why would you forgo an opportunity to eat?

11. When you can't help but plan your entire day around your mealtimes, and that's what gets you through the day.

12. Finishing a meal is super depressing because that means you have to wait forever until you get to your next meal.

13. Going on a date means you know you're going to eat some good food.

14. Having a relationship with food isn't difficult when it never lets you down.

15. Sometimes it's awkward when you eat all your food and everyone else at the table needs a box to take it home.

16. It's even more awkward when you stop them and ask if you can eat their leftovers.

17. Grocery shopping is so difficult, because you want EVERYTHING and you don't have the money to buy it all.

18. You wait to see if someone will offer the last piece of something, and you jump at the chance to claim it for yourself.

19. You also don’t understand how people can pay so much for clothing when it could be spent on food.

20. The only reason you work out is so you can eat more food.

21. You open your fridge door every five minutes, hoping something new has magically appeared.

22. You offer food to be polite, but secretly wish you won’t be taken up on it.

23. Food is a prerequisite for any event that asks for your presence.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
