Your pile of homework, as well as your dreams, crashing upon you.
Soy camarones! (That means "Isn't Duolingo the coolest!" in Spanish.) Duolingo, man. Just the best. Think of Duolingo like your personal trainer, but for learning languages. Coming from someone who can barely speak English, I can honestly say that Duolingo is the best when it comes to maintaining a conversation with someone in a foreign language without accidentally calling yourself shrimp or dog or bathroom. Duolingo offers training in a plethora of languages and it is absolutely free.
Also, their mascot is an owl. Which is a huge plus.
4. Dropbox (or Google Drive, but we'll get to that later.)
Dropbox is a must for anyone who needs to share things between devices.
Which is everyone.
Dropbox is like a little box of internet magic that lets you access files from your phone on your computer, or vice versa. Again, free. And if it weren't for Dropbox, this super cool gif of RDJ wouldn't even be in here.
Don't give me that look.
"Ew, I don't even like it when my parents text me."
Listen, Remind is amazing, whether or not you like getting texts from your teachers. Teachers can give you quick updates about tests, homework, or projects, and because it's on your phone, you're bound to see it at some point.
You can run, but you can't hide.
TED, for those don't know of it, is a platform for speakers to share speeches on almost any topic. There are TED talks for science, math, medicine, robotics, art, humanitarian studies, and so, so much more.
Also magic, but maybe I'm the only one into that.
1. The Entirety of the Google Suite
What else could we expect from Google, the monarch of the internet? Google has a whole line of apps that allow everyone to do for free what some products cost over $100 for. Document writing, presentation making, email, scheduling, file sharing (like Dropbox, but this time called Google Drive), Google has it all. These apps are a must and usually totally eliminate the need for other programs.
