15 Apps To Help You Get Through Finals

Apps like Evernote, Quizlet, Grammarly and Prezi are all apps you need to get through the end of this semester.

15 Apps To Help You Get Through Finals

Hi friends! Finals are coming up very fast (probably too fast) and I have put together some apps to help you effectively work/study for finals.


1. Trello

Trello is great for organizing through boards, lists and cards that you can work collaboratively on with friends. You can even integrate your other apps into Trello such as Evernote or Dropbox and more. If you work on more than one device like me, it also syncs across all. Get Trello here!

2. Habitica

Habitica is an app that helps you get work done through gaming and habit building. It's basically video gaming but helps you get stuff done. You track your habits and goals, get rewards and play with friends who also have Habitica. You can sign up for free, here.

3. Wunderlist

Keep your life in sync with Wunderlist. You can organize all of your lists and set reminders to complete them. If you're someone who likes to have a paper and pen, you can even print your lists out. To help complete your goals you can collaborate with others who have Wunderlist on iPhone, Android, Mac, Ipad, Applewatch, Kindle Fire, Windows Phone and Chromebook. Download it here .

4. Evernote

Evernote is similar to the previous apps mentioned except that it encompasses it a lot more. Besides being apple to organize your lists with reminders and collaborate with others, Evernote allows you to integrate notes, tables, attachments, audio recordings even handwritten notes. However, if you want all of these specs, you have to pay. It's free to sign up but the plus, premium and business accounts will cost you. Find their prices here.

Reminders App

A lot of people forget about this great app that Apple has in every iPhone (sorry Android) nowadays. If you're just looking for something to remind yourself to do things throughout the day use the reminder app right in your home screen (and it's free).


1. Study BlueImage result for studyblue

Study Blue is an online flashcard maker that you can study from. Before you make your own flashcards, you can check to see if someone from your university/college or even your own class has made flashcards that you can use. StudyBlue also has flashcards according to different topics. Find out more about StudyBlue here

2. Quizlet

Quizlet is just like StudyBlue in that it helps you study via flashcards. However, if you want StudyBlue and all of its specs (StudyBlue Pro) you have to pay. Quizlet, on the other hand, includes a lot of different options such as voice recording to help you study your flashcards, games and diagrams (all of which are free to use). I personally prefer Quizlet over StudyBlue but hey, everyone has their preferences.

3. Oxford English Dictionary

Ever feel like you don't understand what you're reading while studying? Use Oxford English Dictionary to help you look up those words you don't understand.

For Sleep

1. Alarmy (Sleep If U Can)

Say hello to the world's most annoying alarm clock. If you're a heavy sleeper this is the app for you. This alarm clock makes you complete a task in order for it to shut off such as taking a photo of your sink or solving a math equation. You can get it here

2. Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock

This app monitors your sleeping habits and allows you to see when you're awake and restless through graphs and charts as well as an alarm that slowly awakens you. It can show you which parts of the nights you are the most restless to give you a better night's sleep.


1. EasyBibImage result for easy bib

EasyBib is a free Bibliography Generator that can make citations in APA, MLA and Chicago formats instantly once you enter the website, book, video/film, journal, database, etc. It takes all the time out of creating citations for papers and makes sure they're 100% correct. I use this for every paper I write.

2. Grammarly

Grammarly is a free grammar checker that automatically checks for every possible error in any type of writing you have. I use this for everything I write and unfortunately it does not yet support Google Docs directly but you can still manually put it your writing and just copy and paste the newly edited work back into Google Docs. I love Grammarly - it's basically an editor who is consistently proofreading your work as you type. You can download it to chrome here.

Group Work

1. Google Drive

Many college students use this already, but if you're looking for a document styled way to create a group project that enables users to see what others are doing in the moment you should use Google Drive. It includes Google Documents, Google Slides (basically a powerpoint) Google Sheets and more. All are free here with a google account.

2. DropboxImage result for dropbox

Dropbox is a tool designed to keep all your files in place and synced across all of your devices. You can also work collaboratively with others with files all at your fingertips. Find out more here.

3. Prezi

Prezi is "designed for people who aren't designers". It's an innovative software that allows users to create a unique presentation through different styles, images and cues. I've used Prezi for many group presentations and it takes a lot of time out of having to edit the presentation to how you want it to look.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
