5 Ways Microsoft Word Makes College Life So Much Easier

5 Ways Microsoft Word Makes College Life So Much Easier

I no longer write down my notes during my lectures. Writing down notes with a pencil in hand always leave my hand sweaty and exhausted every time in class.


As I reached the end of my semester, I realized how important Microsoft Word plays in my college life. Without Microsoft Word, I don't think my college life wouldn't have been easier. If there is something I should be thankful for, that will be Microsoft Word. Here are the reasons why.

1. Microsoft Word makes note-taking more comfortable for me

I no longer write down my notes during my lectures. Writing down notes with a pencil in hand always leave my hand sweaty and exhausted every time in class. I was unable to keep up with what the teacher is saying as well, leaving me so frustrated. But Microsoft Word allows me to keep up with the teacher is saying and I was able to gather the most important notes.

2. Microsoft Word gives me a place to write out my stories

If you are taking a Creative Writing class in fiction, Microsoft Word is the best program to type out stories. You can store all your creative ideas in a document. I love writing stories so much, I always go to Microsoft Word. Plus, this is where I'm writing my in-progress stories that I hope to publish as a novel one day! Not to mention, Microsoft Word allows me to keep my stories hidden away from the public eye. That's to say that Microsoft Word is my outlet for all my creative ideas.

3. Microsoft Word allows me to type out my essays

This is probably the only place where I have to write all of my college essays…

4. Microsoft Word helps me write out my resumes

As I apply for job interviews and internships, they will always ask for resumes. And boy, what place allows me to build my resume? Microsoft Word, no dah.

5. Microsoft Word makes list-making easier

Every time that I have to write out a list of groceries to buy, what art supplies I have to buy, or what ideas I have for my essay, Microsoft Word always make my lists so neat and organized to look at.

Are you thankful for having Microsoft Word in your life? Because I am!

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
