Plagiarism Checkers

Writing is necessary for all your college admission essays since it is the best tool for gauging how well you understand a given topic. To write effectively, you need to avoid plagiarism, which necessitates plagiarism checkers. Therefore, you should arm yourself with the best plagiarism checkers to keep you off the trap of intellectual fraud and dishonesty.

Dictionaries

Without a proper dictionary, your stay at college and ability to express yourself effectively will be blunt. Your writing efforts will be like the proverbial toothless bulldog that can only bark but can't bite. If you need some sharp teeth and an edge in your verbal and written expression, you should invest in a quality dictionary suited for college student needs. You can get them in hard and soft copies to ensure you have a sophisticated vocabulary.

Dictation Apps

Do you ever reach a point where you don't have time or even desire to write or type your notes? Finding yourself in that mood where you don't feel like writing anything is normal for all college students. But the good news is that technology has availed many dictation apps you can use to save yourself typing efforts and time. You only need to dictate what you want, and the app will translate it digitally into whatever you want. You can also take the same notes and paste them into other apps and even email them.

Planner and Organizer Apps

Your life in college remains lame and unproductive without the proper planning of your time and tasks. That is why you need to get proper hard and soft planners and organizers to help you manage your time. The Net has many of them with most of them being optimized for mobile devices.

Storage Tools

Lastly, you need storage resources for your digital content. One of the tools you can optimize is Dropbox. With this app, you can store your notes in the cloud and access them anywhere. This way, you no longer need to carry flash disks. Other apps that do the same thing are Google Drive and OneDrive from Microsoft. The best side of these tools is their ability to function on desktops and mobile devices.

With the above tools, you can make your note-taking, storage and access, and planning processes in college more effective. They are also suitable for enriching your vocabulary and helping you to beat plagiarism.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions.
