Have you ever wondered what happened on the day you were born?

I once went to the huge library in Vancouver, BC to check out the newspapers they have, just to see what happened on my birthday. I encourage you to do the same, it’s pretty cool!

There is an old nursery rhyme that supposedly tells your future:

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good in every way.

I’m not sure if I believe in this kind of stuff, but since I was born on a Wednesday, apparently I am “full of woe”. Sort of accurate.

Also, the number one songs on my birthday were:
In the USA: “Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix)” by Los Del Rio
In the UK: “Breakfast At Tiffanys” by Deep Blue Something (I LOVE THIS SONG. MAYBE IT’S FATE?)

Today I am:
– 16 years, 1 month, 1 day old
– 112 years old in dog years
– 5,876 days old
– Approx. 141,040 hours old
– Approx. 507,745,690 seconds old

Thanks, Jazz, for the great idea!

Until next time, Em 🙂

Spotlight Post: My favorite apps for NOT procrastinating

We all procrastinate at some point. Don’t try to deny it.

To try to combat this terrible habit, I found some really good apps that keep me on track with school-work and such.

1. Wunderlist: This is a task list creator, but it’s also great for use as a planner. You can even change the background design :3

2. Simplenote: This is a list maker, sort of like Evernote

3. Evernote: This is another list maker

4. Clearly: This app lets you see articles without the ads and such, and it connects with Evernote so you can save your highlighted article for future use!

5. Evernote Web Clipper: This app is just like Clearly, but it saves the article you’re reading right to Evernote (without ads), instead of letting you highlight them

6. Weekplan: This is a planner, I used it last year for school-work and it works really well! You can make things “important” and even cross things off your daily list of tasks!

7. StayFocusd: With this app, you can limit the amount of time you can spend on certain sites each day – for instance, you can give yourself 40 minutes a day to use Tumblr, Facebook, and Youtube  (all together). This is great for keeping you from procrastinating!

8. Noteboard: An app that lets you create sticky notes!

9. Springpad: This is a list maker, but in the form of notebooks (AND YOU CAN DESIGN YOUR OWN!!! MAKING THE COVERS DIFFERENT COLORS!!! *FAINT*)

10. Wishpot: This isn’t a very productive app, but it does let you create wishlists and add things via the web using a button provided on their website

If you have any other good websites/apps to share, please do! 🙂

Until next time, Em 🙂
