Essential Productivity Apps for any student:
Caffeine-  Prevents your screen from going into sleep mode. Great if you’re writing notes on an article and the screen keeps dimming, whilst you hope that if you stare long enough, the phrase “homologous ways to a view of hegemony” will start to make sense.
Flux- If you find that you can’t sleep for ages after studying late at night, then this app is a total game changer. It basically turns the light on the screen red, because science people say that blue light keeps you awake and red light doesn’t. (*Full Disclosure* I’m not a scientist)
Focusbar- The annoying voice of your mother nagging you to finish your homework…in app form. You can set the annoying level (I have it set on “wildly annoying”) and a bar will appear in the corner every few seconds to remind you that you’re supposed to be doing something else besides looking at cat photos. 
Microsoft Office- self explanatory, so I’ve linked to an article about life hacks for Microsoft Office instead. Because I’m just that awesome. 
Nag- Does your 5 minute study break keep turning into an hour on Youtube? Then you need Nag in your life. It’s basically an alarm/timer. But an extremely loud and annoying alarm/timer that’s very difficult to ignore. The bells genuinely sound more judgemental the longer you ignore it.  
Self Control-  Also known as Cold Turkey for Microsoft users. If you absolutely cannot be trusted with an internet connection, then you need Self Control in your life. You add a list of websites to the “blacklist”and then set how long you want the app to work for, and for that duration of time you wont be able to access those website. Seriously, not even rebooting your computer or uninstalling the app will let you access the blacklist until your time is up. Tough love at its finest.
Zotero-  The new love of my life. Zotero allows you to manage all your citations and sources in one easy place. It’s an absolute life saver- no joke. There’s an in-word add in, so it will write your bibliography and citations for you in any format you want. There’s a chrome/firefox add in and a mobile app, so you don’t even have to type the citation into Zotero. Just press the button it does all the hard work for you. It even updates itself online, so you can still access your bibliography if your computer crashes. I <3 Zotero 5eva.

I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:
IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.
1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.
2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.
3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”
4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”
5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.
TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.
Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, either. Pass it on.


why on earth doesn’t this have more notes

I actually had to do this once. She lived.

if you scroll past this on your dash you are absolutely heartless.

Reblog this!! This can save somebody’s life!

reblog.
help.
do not scroll down.

Good information to know, and while I encourage reblogging, I’m not going to label you as heartless if you do not.

  7. Common Symptoms of Relapse

    just-another-blogging-recoverer:

    [These are symptoms for mental illness in general, not necessarily ED. They still apply, but there may be additional warning signs if you have other issues.]

    1. Exhaustion.
    You’re pushing yourself too hard, or suddenly everything makes you tired.

    2. Dishonesty.
    Making excuses, or little white lies that aren’t so little. Lying about how much you’re eating or sleeping, for example.

    3. Impatience.
    Things aren’t happening fast enough, and others aren’t doing what you expect of them. You find yourself snapping and sighing.

    4. Depression.
    Unreasonable despair that is disproportionate to the situation in intensity, frequency or duration. Often also involves exhaustion and isolation.

    5. Isolation.
    You don’t want to see anyone. You realize it’s been a while since you talked to [friend’s name]. Or anyone.

    6. Frustration.
    At people, situations, and things not going your way. Cue sarcasm, impatience and snapping.

    7. Self-pity.
    Feelings of why is this happening to me? Why me?

    8. Over-confidence.
    Thinking you’ve got everything under control—which may lead to poor decision-making or ignoring early symptoms or triggers. (I can’t be sick again, I’m fine!)

    9. Unreachable expectations of others.
    Resentment and anger at others. I’ve changed, so why hasn’t everyone else?

    10. Drug & alcohol use.
    Mood-altering substances do not help mental illness. Period.

    11. Unreachable expectations of self.
    Setting goals that are too high, expecting too much of yourself and therefore being consistently disappointed with yourself.

    12. Inadequate use of support structure.
    Either you don’t have a support structure in place, or you’re not using it. This could also mean not following your treatment plan, not keeping your doctor’s appointments, etc.

    If you see more than a couple of these signs in yourself, get help now. Catching relapse early can reduce the severity and length. You’ll be feeling better sooner, and everyone wants that!
