Make the Most Out of Your College Days

Many times we start new experiences and have so much we want to get out of them. But then we forget. Or we change. Or something else happens. Either way, we sometimes get some of our goals accomplished and others fall by the wayside. Well what if you could keep track of everything you want to do and add on or alter the list as your college experience winds up? We’re not talking the ever popular “Bucket List”. It’s not even the ubiquitous five year plan (which is useful but might be overly detailed). We’re talking more of a set time period to accomplish all the things you want to do in a more defined time period. A few years back I started doing the 101 in 1001 – set 101 goals and give yourself 1001 days to do them. But every college experience is a different length. And hopefully some of you are almost done! So we recommend the following instead:

It is Mother’s Day! We’d like to give a big shout out to all the moms out there, the moms that took over for other moms, the substitute moms, the moms away from home, and the dads that do great parenting or are single dads. Hats off to you! We wouldn’t be the great people we are without you. In honor of Mother’s Day, we wanted to send a couple ideas your way about things to do to celebrate your moms year round.

A Tech Year of Service

The National Day of Service in the United States was January 19 this year. The celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday was the 21st. Even though these are two very recognized days to spend a day on not a day off helping your fellow man (animal, nature, etc). This doesn’t mean these are the only two days that you should give service. As Marian Wright Edelman said “Service is the rent we pay to be living. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time.”. We all have different reasons for serving. For some, there is the intrinsic happiness we get from having served. For others, there is the happiness that comes from extrinsic motivators like recognition and honor. Either way, you need to find some service!

Cool Tech You Might Use This Semester

Technology has a very useful place in education. Very useful. Teachers and professors have smart boards and these days everyone seems to be using Blackboard or a similar technology to encourage group discussions and have a repository for course materials. Every class dealing with numbers is using specific software and/or requiring super fancy calculators (which as we all know are best used for an intense game of Tetris®). Many classes are having you write papers or do some intense research for papers. So what tech might you actually get to use? What tech might get your work done and make everyone else want to be your buddy?

Many people rely on radio apps to listen to music or news on their iOS device when they are on the go. This doesn’t include apps like the Amazon Cloud Player app which plays only music you own. These apps are dedicated to bringing you awesomeness, one tune at a time. Some apps we’ve talked about here at The Pink C before include TuneIn radio and Stitcher. We won’t cover those in depth again here but they are potentially good apps to pick from and are listed below. All apps listed here are free to download and use. Extra perks might cost money. Hope you find something great to use to keep you going day to day!
