Why settle for three meals a day when you can have seven?

Let’s be real, hobbits have the life we all want. Tolkien knew what he was talking about. Unfortunately, with our busy college lifestyle we cannot afford to miss class without repercussions.

We can however, integrate the genius Hobbit Meal Plan into our lives. Hobbits have seven meals a day and that is something I can definitely get behind. Here’s how you too can implement the Hobbit Meal Plan in your life.


Breakfast (A.K.A. stuff your face with as much food as you can in two minutes because you’re already late to class.)[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F03%2F04%2F635926730083906478-2085790057_tumblr_inline_njdpsmsv5k1rrje9w.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=664&h=ab2a78b9a895e9be0d92c983982f35a32794cec742ce66db9a607413ccab1a85&size=980x&c=4282545974 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F03%252F04%252F635926730083906478-2085790057_tumblr_inline_njdpsmsv5k1rrje9w.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D664%26h%3Dab2a78b9a895e9be0d92c983982f35a32794cec742ce66db9a607413ccab1a85%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4282545974%22%7D" expand=1]

Hobbits have breakfast at seven in the morning, which is too damn early for any college student to be a functioning human being, so we’re moving our breakfast time down to the final countdown before your first class because in all honesty, there’s no way you’re going to get out of bed with enough time to sit down for a meal, look presentable, and be on time for class.

Because everyone needs food to keep them going between classes. And lunch is too damn far. (There is no second breakfast, because we slept in, although I’m sure you could find time for it if you tried.)

Celebrate surviving half the day with a hearty meal! Samwise Gamgee's got the right idea.


Afternoon tea (A.K.A. second lunch.)

If you’re not posh enough for afternoon tea, this is basically another lunch! Who doesn’t love more food? Besides, it’s only three and you’re already hungry. There’s no way you’d survive your next class without eating something.


Dinner

Hooray! You’ve made it through the day! Chow down on some delicious goodness with everyone you love. And food. You love food, too.

Whether you have a three-hour evening seminar, or you need some sustenance to get through your piles of homework, supper is where you can find all your dietary needs that will hopefully keep your stomach happy as you slave away over your problem sets.

You’ve managed to make a good enough dent in your work to call it a night. So you get ready to watch an episode or two of your favorite TV show before bed when your stomach calls out to you yet again. And who are you to refuse? You open up a bag of popcorn or heat up the leftover Thai food from dinner and end your day in a few moments of bliss.

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!

Presents

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.
