Productivity apps!!
I’m more of a pen and paper kind of girl myself, but I always have my phone with me, and these apps help me stay focused and organized.
1. Google Docs. Everybody knows what this is. The app has a really clean and user friendly interface and let’s you edit all your documents from your phone, as well as print or share.
2. Google Drive. This goes hand in hand with the first app, although is definitely less useful, in my opinion. You can view folders, but you can only look at or edit documents with Google Doc. Still, i find that it’s very organized, and again, clean and simple to use.
3. Wikipanion. Bla, bla, bla, don’t use Wikipedia, whatever. I personally like to use this app to introduce myself to something I’m unfamiliar with, whether that be a person I’m studying or a concept. It mostly helps me set up an outline for my rough draft notes so I have an idea of where to focus my studying on this specific person or concept.
4. Notes. Just the notepad that comes with iPhones or IPods, again very simple, but super helpful in keeping track of to-do’s or plans without having to pull out the planner.
5. Duolingo. LOVE this and you’ve undoubtedly heard of it. I’m using it to keep my German skills sharp. Paired with real-world note taking, this has to be the best way to learn a language, for free. 
6. SAM. SAM is an app that helps you take notice of and clear away symptoms of anxiety. Sometimes in class or when I’m heading to work, I get hit with strong physical pains, a symptom of my anxiety. Using any of the tools on SAM helps me placate these symptoms and move forward. There are exercises on how to relax your mind and body, motivational cues, all kinds of helpful stuff.
7. Calm. I also use calm for my anxiety, or to help me sleep. It’s very simple: a calming image paired with a gentle voice (think yoga CD) and soothing nature sounds. Good for those quick moments when you wish you could meditate, or for trying to calm down enough to take a short nap.
8. Wunderlist. I have a physical planner where I write my To-Do lists and responsibilities, but I find that it’s easy enough to ignore that little line that says “vacuum” or “organize notes” when just listed under bigger, more important things. Like I keep saying, most of us are always with our phones, and with Wunderlist, you can organize ALL of your tasks by category (mine are Family, Work, and School), set a date and time, and you will get a friendly reminder telling you to actually get it done. It’s basically a planner mixed with a nagging mom, which, ngl, can be helpful.
So that’s that! I also recommend you download the app for your personal bank. I know that has nothing to do with productivity (that’s why mine isn;t in this folder), but it’s SO quick and easy to check your accounts and keep an eye on your spending without downloading one of those apps that require entering all your bank information, something I’m very hesitant to do.

Another way to present the 9 types of intelligence as exemplified by my How Do We Measure Intelligence post.

The basic idea is that different people are good at different things. These 9 probably don’t cover the wide range of smarts we all possess, but it’s a start.

As Albert Einstein said, ”Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Avatar: The Last Airbender Documentary (Full) - Avatar Spirits 

For those who have never taken the time to watch this documentary, I STRONGLY urge you to do so now. It’s near ridiculous how much effort these men have put into their work, along with both the crews of atla and lok. After watching this, you will see why being pulled from the air is such a big deal. 

so beautiful!
