30/100 days of productivity [June 2]

Tumblr u better post this.

I’m working on one project at the time, you will know about it very soon. But cause of it (and the group chat) I haven’t get my daily studying done so I need it to be done tomorrow.

On the bright side, I got a job for summer! Suddenly! But I got it! Yay!

Google is a fantastic productivity source for getting work done all in one Google account. With Google Drive, Calendar, Sites, and other apps, keeping track of what you need to do can be easy if you know how to maximize your experience.

1. Make a personal homepage for keeping track of daily plans
Homepages aren’t as popular as they once were, with most people just using a search engine for their homepage, like… Bing I guess. If you need to keep track of what’s due every day, you might want to consider making your own personal homepage with Google Sites. Google Sites can be used to make websites for the whole world to visit, but you can also set it up so only you can view it. You can put specific Google Calendars on the page, a Google Presentation slideshow of a to-do list, or whatever helps you be the most productive.

2. Create multiple calendars for specific tasks
We all have different categories for events that have due dates, or appointments to keep track of, so instead of throwing all that into one calendar, you can make different calendars inside one account for the different tasks in your life. One for bills, work tasks, school tasks, and whatever goes on in life. That way you can turn off one calendar and focus on what needs to be focused.

3. Organize your Google Drive into multiple folders
Back in 2009 when I first discovered Google Drive, then called Docs, it was only for documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. You could upload some files, but the storage limit was tiny. Today, with a base free plan at 15 GB, many people use Drive to store their entire digital life. You should keep that life organized. Sure, there’s a search box to help, but just being able to click on a folder to find exactly what you’re looking for is much better. It takes a bit to organize, but you’ll be happy once you do.

4. Create shortcuts to your Google Drive folders
Speaking of folders, there are some folders you use daily, but their buried in folder after folder, because you organized it all to stay focused. Instead of clicking into multiple folders every day to get to that daily folder, just make a shortcut to the folder. The great part about Google Drive is the links in the address bar to the specific folder are static, they never change, or at least I haven’t noticed that in the four months of use. You can place the shortcuts in your bookmarks bar, or on your desktop to get right into the folder without opening your browser. Just drag the URL from your address bar to your bookmarks bar, or desktop.

5. Use Google Voice to organize phone calls
Google Voice is a Google App that is not as well known. The service gives you a real phone number, and gives you the ability to send free calls and texts to anyone in the USA and Canada. Why would you want another phone number? It’s great for small businesses or anyone that want to give out a number they can field. The service allows the user to screen calls by asking for the caller’s name, record calls, start conference calls, and the ability to use the service across numerous devices, not just your phone, including setting a Do Not Disturb when you need it.

Bonus: Integrate your Google Apps with IFTTT, or If This Then That allows you to fully automate your life. You can set up different recipes for if something specific happens, then it creates something. For example, when a calendar event happens, it will put it in a spreadsheet, or whatever would best help your life go smoother. There are many examples in the website that have helped others, they might help you as well.

Google Apps are very powerful, and knowing how to use them to your advantage can help you in your every day work. If you have any better ideas that you use, email me at or post it in the comments below.

Q: What is your biggest pet peeve?

I don’t know why but when doors aren’t closed all the way (closets, bathrooms etc.) then I have an urge to close the door right away. I don’t like open doors I guess 😂

So today is a very productive day for me. I woke up at 10:30 and by 11:30 I was cleaning on the fridge in our kitchen. Note I share the house I am currently in with my cousin Haylie, cousin Tammie - which is Haylie’s mother, and my aunt whom I call Mimi. She is 73. She is like my parent. I take care of her and clean the house, along with my little cousin when he comes over - I take care of him and the dog and myself. I do a lot. But I know it is all appreciated. :) Anyway, I did the fridge all while texting MY partner and keeping her updated on how my day is going since she seems to like it when I do that. So, i began helping my aunt by making her some scrambled eggs and coffee. I at least know how to do that even though there is still many adult things i dont know how to do. She enjoyed the eggs and appreciated them. Now I’m outside while the dog who belongs to Tammie does her business and I am waiting for her to be done so I can resume dishes. I also am working on laundry for myself and my aunt as we share a dirty clothes basket and a bedroom but there isn’t a lot this time like there usually is. Wish me luck on my day, as I also plan on cleaning all my tech and my room. :)

29/100 days of productivity [June 1]

It’s 3:30 pm and I’ve already done everything I planned for today, so I’m finally above the plan! I wrote notes for the chapter, learned about 18 new English words today and repeating dates I was writing down to flashcards. Would be repeating last ones the whole evening tho. I also wrote an essay but I’m not really proud of it as it turned out to be just some lame text I wrote in a chaos of sounds.

I want to write something more informal now, like a fanfiction or original fiction but I don’t have a clear idea yet :’)

Personal achievement: I woke up at my goal time today! 5am bby!

I want to share with you a thought I shared with a relative of mine:

I want to touch on a subject – another relative’s name of mine goes here, y – told me (some years ago) about – another relative’s name of mine goes here, x: it seems to y, mentally, x was getting worse and worse. Then, x got pregnant. And, as if it never was, her mental health tempered. While I’m not the pregnant one, it seems, I’m having a corollary experience. And, I hope, I’m not wrong! 13 years of convalescence is plenty good for me. Lethargic catatonia doesn’t suit me and my personality!

Killer highlight, coffee on the go, hoop earrings, the smell of rain, walking with attitude

Hot cocoa, plaited hair, muddy shoes, face turned towards the sun, old soul

The smell of blossom, bare feet, green tea, sunset, flowers in your hair, warm smile

Fleeting grins, running in the wind, rosy cheeks, fresh fruit, flowing skirts

#8: Cover Letters

We’ve all got a long summer ahead of us. I, personally, plan to take on a summer internship. Almost every internship I apply for requires a cover letter, so I use a cover letter planner to get my thoughts together before I start writing. The left column is for the things you put on your resume, like a job or a volunteer experience. The top row is where you list the internships you’re applying for. All internships come with a description that includes the basic skills recruiters are looking for, so just go through your resume and start linking your experiences back to the description. For example, if the job expects you to be able to write well and you write for the school paper, you’ll want to mention that. I hope this helps, and good luck!
