#DTL -- Your New Favorite App

Jump onto the bandwagon!

A new app has been creating a lot of buzz among college students. The concept is simple, silly, and oddly appealing. Don't try and resist the movement: this app is the future of socializing.

It's called Down to Lunch.Down to Lunch is an app that sends your friends a notification when you are engaging in an activity and would like company. These activities include breakfast, lunch, dinner, studying, exercising, chilling, and many more!

You may be thinking, "Why wouldn't I just text my friends? Wouldn't that be easier?" I too had that thought, but within an hour, I transitioned from a skeptic to a devoted user of the Down to Lunch
app.

If you are a skeptic like I was, here are some reasons to give the app a chance!

1. It's so simple.

There isn't always time to plan ahead -- you don't know exactly where you will be and at what time. When you want company at a spontaneous time, use the app! Skip texting your friends individually to figure out who's free, and just invite everyone at once!

2. You don't have to send a group text.

Group texts and Facebook messages come in handy, but they annoy everyone and come with an unstated obligation to respond. With DTL, a simple, one-time notification is sent without a required response.

3. Your friends come to you.

Let's say you have already laid out your books and set up a nice study area for yourself, and you'd like company. DTL let's your friends know you're staying put. If they want to hang out, they come to you! How convenient is that?!

4. You don't have to put yourself out there.

Unlike other methods of invitation, this is far less personal. They don't know whom else you've invited, it's much more spontaneous, and as I mentioned before -- it doesn't require a response. DTL removes you from the risk of being turned down. This is the perfect opportunity for you to invite your crush to lunch without revealing your true intentions.

5. Your friends are getting it.

Let's be real: this is going to be big. If you are the only one without the app, all of your friends will be eating lunch without you. Soon you'll be phased out of the group! You don't have to think it's a good idea before you download it -- just do it so you won't miss lunch invitations!

I think I've made my point. Now download the app so I can invite you to lunch!

If You've Ever Been Called Overly-Emotional Or Too Sensitive, This Is For You

Despite what they have told you, it's a gift.

Emotional: a word used often nowadays to insult someone for their sensitivity towards a multitude of things.

If you cry happy tears, you're emotional. If you express (even if it's in a healthy way) that something is bothering you, you're sensitive. If your hormones are in a funk and you just happen to be sad one day, you're emotional AND sensitive.

Let me tell you something that goes against everything people have probably ever told you. Being emotional and being sensitive are very, very good things. It's a gift. Your ability to empathize, sympathize, and sensitize yourself to your own situation and to others' situations is a true gift that many people don't possess, therefore many people do not understand.

Never let someone's negativity toward this gift of yours get you down. We are all guilty of bashing something that is unfamiliar to us: something that is different. But take pride in knowing God granted this special gift to you because He believes you will use it to make a difference someday, somehow.

This gift of yours was meant to be utilized. It would not be a part of you if you were not meant to use it. Because of this gift, you will change someone's life someday. You might be the only person that takes a little extra time to listen to someone's struggle when the rest of the world turns their backs.

In a world where a six-figure income is a significant determinant in the career someone pursues, you might be one of the few who decides to donate your time for no income at all. You might be the first friend someone thinks to call when they get good news, simply because they know you will be happy for them. You might be an incredible mother who takes too much time to nurture and raise beautiful children who will one day change the world.

To feel everything with every single part of your being is a truly wonderful thing. You love harder. You smile bigger. You feel more. What a beautiful thing! Could you imagine being the opposite of these things? Insensitive and emotionless?? Both are unhealthy, both aren't nearly as satisfying, and neither will get you anywhere worth going in life.

Imagine how much richer your life is because you love other's so hard. It might mean more heartache, but the reward is always worth the risk. Imagine how much richer your life is because you are overly appreciative of the beauty a simple sunset brings. Imagine how much richer your life is because you can be moved to tears by the lessons of someone else's story.

Embrace every part of who you are and be just that 100%. There will be people who criticize you for the size of your heart. Feel sorry for them. There are people who are dishonest. There are people who are manipulative. There are people who are downright malicious. And the one thing people say to put you down is "you feel too much." Hmm...

Sounds like more of a compliment to me. Just sayin'.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.

They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch

Bitch

What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
