So is one feeding a day ok? Because I only feed them when I have class. And what about the weekend? Or breaks? Will they be ok? At least for the weekend?

Once a day is fine to feed! :)
Weekends they can also survive with out food, however, don't do the common overfeeding problem on friday/monday, as most of the food that they don't eat will just add to ammonia! Breaks I not so sure, how long? :)

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Well our breaks are usuall 1-2 weeks. But Winter break is about 3-4 (we live in a desert, it's on fair)

I would suggest "taking" out the platies and have 4 cherry barbs.
Maybe something like this?:
2 guppies (males)
1 apple snail (mystery)
3 - 4 Shrimp (cherries) <<< Way more colourful plus they extremely hardy for a small animal!
4 Cherry Barbs
50% of people say no, 50% of people say yes. I don't believe everything I am told, so I do research to find out. It's like saying you can't breed a corn snake to a Bull snake. But it does happen and they are called Turbo corns. It might not happen to you but it doesn't mean it doesn't happen either.
