Honestly though, I could actually live without it. Despite being part of the Facebook-Instagram-Twitter generation, I've always been neutral when it comes to using cellphones. I'm not even a fan of reply to messages or answering calls. But due to our school requirements which requires a ton of group cooperation, I have to own a phone.

So here are two of the most important tools I'll be using in the next few months:
