3 useful apps for college students

it's like six weeks into my first semester of college and i realized, very quickly, that a lot of the things i was doing just weren't cutting it. i wasn't organized enough, my schedule was a mess, and i was so scatter-brained that it was just making me more nervous than it should've.

so i turned to apps, because isn't that the goal of apps, really, to make our lives easier and benefit us? and i've found some pretty cool gems.

unfortunately i don't have time to read, or write, or knit like i used to. i miss doing those things. but everything here is incredible, and things are looking up.
