Organize Your Life With SpringPad

Not too many things come along that completely change the way I live my life on a day-to-day basis. Facebook, iPods, Netflix and Google all did -- and now there is another....SpringPad.
Android QR Code

SpringPad is an online/smart phone application that simply helps you remember. Everything from tasks to ideas are easily stored away for a later time using this sleek interface.

So, with that said -- I've decided that instead of sitting here and giving you a run down about the entire app (mainly because this ain't no freakin' tech blog); all I'm going to say is that this app is definitely worth a download and hopefully you will fall in love with it as I have.

For Android users, click or scan the QR Code to the right and all you iPhoner's out there can find it on the App Store for....oh yeah, Free!

(P.S. - Just in case some of you are wondering, N0-- no one paid me to say this...I just really love this app!)

How NOT to Go 6 Years for a 4 Year Degree

I know--it's been awhile since I have bestowed my mystic knowledge of college survival tips 'round these parts, and I do apologize.  Been a little busy over here on my end, but I'm back now and ready to shower down my wisdom from the mountaintop yet again. So here it is....enjoy

Stick With Your First Major
When I came out of high school, it was really hard for me to pick my major for college. It felt like I was choosing the job I would have for the rest of my life. I felt like Jerry Seinfeld in that "Bee" Movie.

Eventually, I came to the conclusion that I wasn't sure exactly what it was I wanted to do with my life, but that I was "almost positive" it was going to involve some business aspect. So, I majored in Business and that was that. After all, you can't have a career for long if you can't make enough money to survive while doing it.

Grow out of the party scene quickly
Yes, I know you are finally on your own and the freedom from your parents is great and all--but if you screw around too much your first year, you might be back under their tyrannical rule sooner than you think.
