Hello and welcome to another edition of apps + chrome extensions + nifty sites with Vicky! I honestly need to sit down and come up with a better name for these things, it’s getting to be kind of a mouthful. I know I normally do these separately but I haven’t been doing anything drastically different… Read More apps, extensions, and tools – oh my!
The scene above might be in my top 10 Marshall moments from How I Met Your Mother because not only do I love charts, but I also really love pies. I don’t know why I ever bother telling people that I love pies because I’m pretty sure we all love pies so that’s just a… Read More spotlight on: just love pie

But now it’s been more than a week and I’m still feeling under the weather (read: coughing fits, phantom smells??, headaches, sore throat) so I don’t think I can blame… Read More on the quest for motivation
If you couldn’t tell with the previous instalments of the HIOML series, I really like making sure I stay organized during school. So last year I created a readings tracker.

HIOML = How I Organize My Life I know, what a cheesy acronym right? Part 1 (which I’m going to go an retroactively change the title of right now) is the post from last year about me and my course tracker Excel sheet, which you can read if you still need to do that thing.… Read More calen-do’s!
