For many people, socializing is the single most stressful thing about going to school. Some kids make friends easily, others…not so much. This problem is often at its peak during lunch time. A cafeteria can be daunting if you’re shy and/or feel like everyone but you falls into a clique. Throw bullying into the mix and you have a recipe for despair.
Enter the Sit With Us app. It was created by 16-year-old Natalie Hampton who came up with the idea based on her experience enduring a year of loneliness and bullying in seventh grade. The app is described thusly:
Sit With Us is a social networking app designed to promote kindness and inclusion in schools. Kids can use the app’s features to coordinate lunches with their friends. They can also volunteer to be Ambassadors for their schools and post open lunch events on campus where everyone will be included. No one needs to eat alone!
The concept reminds me of a recent story about Florida State football player Travis Rudolph choosing to sit with an autistic boy during lunch. Needless to say, the affect of this simple gesture was profound for both the boy and his mother. If it catches on, The Sit With Us app could make it easy for anyone to help change someone’s life for the better.
You can download it now on the Apple App Store.

A taste of the state fair will be heading to one Plano, Texas Walmart in the form of a new in-store restaurant owned by Texas State Fair fried food legend Isaac Rousso. It’s a match made in Heaven…or Hell depending on how you look at it.
State Fair Treats will open at the location on September 20th, serving fair favorites like corn dogs and funnel cakes, as well as a variety of more experiential fare, such as funnel cake fries, deep-fried bacon hash browns and cookie fries—the latter of which was a big hit at the Texas State Fair this year.
It’s expected that the location will serve up to 2 million customers in the next year. Additional stores are also being planned in Texas and across the nation.

For the last three years, illustrator Rob Biddulph has drawn fantastic Post-It note cartoons for his daughter Poppy, and hid them in her lunchbox before she went off to school.
Rob noted to Metro that it all started on the day when Poppy transitioned from nursery to primary school. He drew a fun little lunch reminder cartoon and “That evening she asked what I was going to draw for the following day. 600 post-its later we’re still going.” Biddulph burned through her favorite cartoon characters quickly but, thankfully, Poppy’s going through a Star Wars phase, so he has plenty to work with. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]
