#DTL -- Your New Favorite App

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!

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
