Hey business girls, I hope you are all doing well in school and have finally adjusted to your busy college  lifestyles!

I know I have. With all the late night studying, trying to juggle five clubs, the sadness from getting dumped by my first boyfriend (he lives 2 doors down  from me on my floor :-(), and stress piled on top of stress, I still walk around town in my high heels with my head held high!

I definitely know college is tough, but with final’s just around the corner what better time to download free software to make your lives a little easier!

I have made a list of my favorite free computer software programs that I use on a regular basis, so take a look below!

Evernote is a computer software program dedicated to note-taking. I use it to house a myriad of things ranging from my favorite business websites, fashion blogs, to my favorite recipes.

FreeMind is a mind mapping application that I recently used when writing my research paper to link all my topics together .

Smart Math Calculator:

I use Smart Math Calculator on my accounting homework whenever I leave my calculator in my dorm room and I only have my laptop with me.

Open Office:

Open Office is a free alternative to Microsoft Office. I personally do not use Open Office, but my suitemate does.

Spotify is simply put, the best digital music service ever! I have downloaded over 22 hours of free music since it launched in America in July. Yes, I said free music and it is absolutely legal because they pay the big music companies through the use of their limited advertisements.

Celestia is a 3D space simulation that has a database of over 100,000 stars. I use this software to explore galaxies whenever I am curious or bored.

Google Earth:

I have explored Singapore and Kenya without ever leaving America, all with Google Earth. Google Earth, also lets me delve into galaxies and lets me discover what lies beneath the ocean, all from behind my computer screen.

The Gimp:

The Gimp is a free alternative to Photoshop that I use to retouch any messed up photos that I have taken.

❤ Enjoy

  1. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks!

  2. THIS POST IS SERIOUSLY AWESOME!!!!! Besides Google Earth and Gimp, I haven’t heard of any of the others but I’m so excited to put them to good use! Evernote and Freemind – I need! Same with Smart Math Calculator, for the times I’m too lazy to get off the couch and get my calculator out of my backpack ;). Love your blog! Thanks so much for subscribing to mine!
