Book 13 Bunny

  Bunny by Mona Awad fulfilled the category “Dark Academia” for the PopSugar 2021 Reading Challenge.

This story confused and confounded me. I wasn’t …

How to Use Headspace

  There isn’t much “how-to” for this app. It’s mostly click and watch the vids or listen to music or voice recording. Explore it and find out what works for you.

Ideas for Using OneNote

  So, funny story. My house has been chaotic lately, and my focus has been nil. I completely forgot to write and post the third installment of OneNote.

Book 11 Stay Gold

  Stay Gold by Tobly McSmith fulfilled the category “A Book about a Fresh Start” for the PopSugar 2021 Reading Challenge. In this novel, Pony, a transgender boy, starts over at a new high school. I will be honest. The title and the main character’s name were the reason I chose this novel. As you …

How to Use OneNote

  I’ll focus on the desktop version for this how-to. Starting Tasks Download/install OneNote. You may need to create or log in to your Microsoft account. This allows cloud-access to the files.

Book 9 Pride

  Pride: A Pride & Prejudice Remix by Ibi Zoboi fulfills the category “Book by a Muslim American Author” for the PopSugar 2021 Reading Challenge. I took this title from Goodreads list, but I can’t seem to confirm if Ms. Zoboi is actually Muslim. I don’t care. I love this story and had it on …

OneNote

  We’ve been looking at some complicated programs so far in 2021. For the next set, I’m taking a step back to an oldie but a goodie, OneNote by Microsoft. OneNote is (now) a cloud-based filing system. Depending on which Office suite you own, you will have slightly different versions of the app. The older …
