Say goodbye to heavy notebooks and binders.

What’s On My iPad: College Edition

I recently bought an iPad for college and instantly fell in love with it's simplicity and power. I will never go back to regular notebooks and paper.

Before we start, let’s go over what iPad I bought and why I chose that one.

iPad 7th Generation and Apple Pencil 1st Generation

Personally, I prefer the iPad over the iPad Mini and iPad Pro. I like it better than the iPad Mini because the original iPad is the size of a piece of paper, which is convenient when taking notes. I think the iPad Mini would be too small. I like the iPad 7th generation better than the iPad Pro because it is wayyyy cheaper and it does everything I need to do as a college student. I think the iPad Pro is unnecessary for a college student.

I absolutely LOVE Notability. This app allows me to write my notes without using a hundred pieces of paper. A cool feature that I love is how you can upload documents and write directly on them. This is perfect for taking notes on a professor’s slide show or marking notes on a syllabus. This app saves me so much paper and headache.



THIS APP! Oh my goodness, I would be lost without this app. MyHomework allows you to put in all your classes (professor, time, building, room, etc) and see your schedule at a glance on the in-app calendar. You can also add homework assignments, due dates, tests, and much more to the calendar. This app is so so handy for keeping track of assignments and staying motivated.



This app isn’t really meant for college, but I do love using it, especially for anatomy classes. Procreate is an app where you can draw and design things. It is handy when you want to draw graphics or other things you may need to for class.

Google Drive and Associated Apps

This is a given. I couldn’t go through college without Google Drive. I also have Docs and Sheets on my iPad so I can edit documents.



I feel like every college student is in at least one GroupMe chat. I find it convenient to have it on your iPad as well that way you can keep up with conversations in class without pulling out your phone and disturbing people.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.

They are just as essential as toilet paper is right now and they have more power than just being a photo that's hidden on your iPhone. Nudes aren't just a way to turn on the guy/girl you've been hanging out with, but they can elicit a feeling of confidence and pure sexuality.
