Hello everyone! This is resource I wanted to tell you all about! It’s an app called “Voice Pitch Analyzer”. It has you read a passage a full minute, and then tells you if the range may be perceived as more masculine, feminine, or androgynous. (Disclaimer: Obviously peoples voices vary from person to person. There are women with very low voices and men with very high ones. This does not mean they aren’t “real” men and women. This is simply a post for those with voice dysphoria or who would just like to sound more masculine, feminine, or androgynous to those around them). Please don’t be discouraged if you voice does not land in the range you want it to! It takes practice, and practice is just what this app is for. It allows you to practice speaking in the range you want to be percieved as. Admittedly, it can be a little disheartening having to strain my voice just to get in the upper androgynous range, so a major dysphoria trigger warning to anyone considering downloading it, but, with practice I am getting better and able to talk in that low voice for longer periods of time.
Here are some of the very best apps for students; either in highschool or in college. I have used many of the following apps, but not all of them. Some, I have just asked friends about and they suggested those ones.
Please enjoy the apps below, tell me how you like them, and feel free to add onto this list :)
hey everyone! it’s been a while since i made a masterpost, and i recently found some good health-related apps on the play store that i thought to consolidate into a post.
all these apps are available for both ios and android users!i’ve also grouped similar apps together.
fyi: these apps are not intended to replace your therapist/counselor – they only act as an aid. the apps listed here are those that seemed credible enough and had good ratings on the play store. some may help you and some might not. since i don’t have depression or panic attacks, i can’t speak for the efficacy of some of the apps here.
For stress, depression, anxiety, or panic attacks:
Rootd: exercises to help with anxiety and panic attacks, as well as lessons understand anxiety. it also includes emergency contact if you need help and a personal stats page.
Self-help Anxiety Management (SAM): exercises to help you manage your anxiety. you can also build your ‘anxiety tookit’ and chat with other SAM users.
PanicShield: for those who have panic attacks. it has a breathing tool to calm you down, information about panic attacks, and two techniques to train your mind to have fewer panic attacks (based on two types of therapy).
MoodSpace: short, interactive mood workouts that may help treat depression.
InnerHour: a self-help app for stress, anxiety or depression. it has small daily tasks, helps you deal with distressing situations, helps control your stressful thinking patterns, and has a relief box.
Moodpath: an interactive two-week depression and anxiety screening program that tracks your emotional and physical wellbeing and generates a personalized mental health assessment that you can discuss with therapists.
Calm Harm: tasks to help you resist or manage the urge to self-harm.
To generally improve your life:
Youper: conversations with a bot to improve your mood and emotional health. it also has mindfulness and meditation exercises, a mood tracker, journal and symptoms tracker.
Wysa: similar to Youper, Wysa is a chatbot who reacts to the emotions you express to help with anxiety, stress, low mood, anger or sleep issues.
Primed Mind: a life coach to help you reach your personal goals and improve yourself. it can help you build habits, calm down, fall asleep quickly, and study effectively.
Headspace: meditation and mindfulness exercises
Just Rain: a soothing audiovisual rain simulator where you can control the degree of rain sounds.
These are some apps I have that I think are witchy related, and I’ll explain each one below. I got all of these for free for Iphone, idk about any other smartphone.
1. Labyrinthos Academy -
This was my first tarot app by Tina Gong which uses the Golden Thread Tarot deck, which is very simple and easy to learn from. This app goes through the cards and their meanings through memorization games. It’s very useful for beginners to learn the basic meanings for each card. There is also a daily card feature where you can log your interpretation, but I never used it much because it’s isn’t the best feature of the app. This one is definately best for using the memorizing games to learn specific meanings.
2. Golden Thread Tarot -
Another tarot app by Tina Gong, obviously it uses the Golden Thread deck. This one’s main function is a daily card where you can log your interpretation. The log also allows you to record your emotional state and specific feelings you had when reading your card. Then you can look at how many times suits or numbers come up in readings, and your most frequent feelings based on week, month, and year. I think it’s a great logging feature so you can keep checking your emotional state day by day. It also has a tarot database where you can look up any card through a search. It also has a collection of spreads. I use these as guidelines for physical cards, but you could also use this app as a digital deck which is also really interesting. What I don’t like about these is that it asks you to write you question after, and honestly, sometimes I forget to ask it before and it messes up the reading. You can also click on the cards after you flip them to see definitions but you can’t do that once you’ve started to log it, so if you forget you can’t go back. Otherwise, pretty good recourse app, I use it to look up meanings from the database a lot.
3. Luminous Spirit Tarot -
Yet another tarot app by Tina Gong, this time using the Luminous Spirit deck by Labyrinthos Academy. This is most similar to the Golden Thread app in format and features and function, however, it used a different deck and focuses on teaching tarot through connection with the moon. So for anyone particularly devoted to the moon, I would recommend this one. Instead of daily cards, this app keeps track of the phases of the moon. You come up with a monthly goal or focus and as the phases change you do a full reading about that topic through the cycle. It also asks you to meditate on your question by “charging the moon” where you can really focus on what you need to be asking. It keeps track of your readings and you can use the digital deck, but unlike the Golden Thread, it allows you to look up the meanings of the cards as you write your interpretations and helps you relate them to their position in the spread. This one is best for learning how cards function in spreads and in relation to each other. It also has a database and if you’re not in love with the Golden Thread deck, this deck is more realistic pencil drawings in black and white which has a more soothing appearance. Very simple and useful!
4. Seventh Sphere -
Yes, it’s by Tina Gong, however, instead of another tarot deck, this is a Lenormand card deck. It has some short lessons about what a Lenormand Deck is as well as a database like the last two. It has another logging system, more similar to the Golden Thread or Labyrinthos Academy apps than to the Luminous Spirit one. It doesn’t have you meditate on your question beforehand but it gives you a list of interpretations to think about. Because this is a different deck, I don’t mind this set up because it helps me learn each card’s meaning through practice and how to use this set of cards. Also, this deck is gorgeous! Like screw all the other decks I was dreaming about this is first on my list when I get spending money again and want another deck.
5. Stone -
So this is the most simple app on this list. It is literally just a list of pictures of gems and crystals and you can click on any and it will show you its properties and a well-written description of it. That’s it. I don’t have my own correspondences for crystals or anything so it’s easier for me to use this.
6. Planets -
Okay, this one is cool. This is basically a digital sky. You can hold it up to the sky and move it around and it will show you exactly where all the stars, planets, and constellations are in real time. You can also set it to 2D mode where it rotates like a compass. There is also a section that will tell you the visibility of each planet and the moon, and if you click on each it will give you more details. I think you can also zoom in on planets and stars but I don’t use that much. I recommend for witches who like to time their spells to celestial movements or have a hard time of visualizing or don’t have access to look at the night sky always.
7. PlantNet -
This is one of my most popular post on here and it was a goddamn typo. Yes, this is PlantNet, not plannet. I got it, thanks. But seriously this is a super great app for identifying plants on the go. You take a picture of a plant and it searches a database for a list of possibilities of what it could be then, links you to their Wikipedia page. It’s not 100% accurate but it’s cool and sometimes useful.
8. Infinite Storm -
This is an audio app that I use for meditation on the go. You can customize the noises, the types of rain, the intensity, if you want thunder or not, and add other sounds. It’s simply lovely.
9. Yummly -
I just downloaded this today but I already love it. It’s just a food app but I’m a kitchen witch so, yeah. I have a couple food apps (tasty, pintrest, etc.) but I’m excited about this one. It customizes your feed by your food preferences and you can list your allergies and food you just don’t like. You can add recipes to lists and make a grocery list. You can search by what you’re in the mood for and you can even find recipes based on what you already have so you don’t have to go shopping. I miss cooking and hoping that this will give me a few more good recipies to try that are different than the same 6 that keep appearing on my pintrest feed.
These are about all the ones I have so far that I like. I used to have others but clearly haven’t used them enough to keep them. If you have any witchy apps you love send them my way, I’d love to check them out!
Today’s post is all about websites that I use in my daily school routine for essays or generally for homework that might make your life a lot easier too.Let’s get on into it.
• Photomath: Photomath is actually an app where you can take a photo of a math equation and it can solve it for you BUT unlike some other apps that give straight up the answer it gives you the details of the solving procedure.I know that some of you might think that this is actually not good and I know that we’re supposed to do all the homework by ourselves but I sometimes use it when I’m just not in the mood to do Maths but still need to get all my school work done for the next day.
• Hemingway: So this a site that I’ve been really using lately when it comes to double-checking and correcting essays.I really like Word don’t get me wrong but after I finish a big essay I always make mistakes (e.x. some words might not be correctly written or might not “fit”) so I copy and paste the whole article or whatever it is there and it highlights the mistakes or anything that is not correctly done in my work.
• IXL: This is a website for maths practice problems that I told you in my previous post.There’s not much to explain, it provides you with all kinds of exercises for whatever you need and at least for me it has done wonders.
school is here, i’m shaking with fear, and i’m still queer. but i have been preparing for this school year by finding and organizing apps to help me study that i would love to share. so lets hop right in, shall we?
studying and school
my study life. oh, how i love this app. a perfect way to keep track of tasks, exams, and classes all on your phone. i really hate planning apps but this one is worth checking out. once again, easy to use and is perfect for high school and college students.
quizlet. at this point, we all probably know quizlet quite well as it’s an essential in education these days. quizlet is a lovely flash card app that has saved my spanish grade time and time again. easy to use with a clean execution.
socratic. don’t know an answer? don’t have a review guide to check from? never fear, socratic is here. this beauty scans questions or has you type them in and will give you full length responses explaining answers. they provide multiple different resources from the internet to best explain the answer to you.
photomath. math, our archenemy. well, like socratic, photomath will scan your math problem and give you an answer with an explanation. extremely helpful when you’re stuck and need a bit of help. one unfortunate drawback is that photomath sometimes isn’t able to answer extremely complex math problems, but it is still a savior.
evernote. like quizlet, evernote is another essential. a note taking app in which you are able to leave voice memos, scan documents, draw, etc. once again, very simple and beautiful.
duolingo. i feel like i hardly need to explain this one, but i shall. a simple language learner that takes you section by section through learning a language. a fun app that can be difficult to keep track of sometimes.
memrise. a cute little app that takes language learning slower than duolingo. this app also has sections and is well put together but can be hard to keep track of.
babble. this language learner is a bit different from the rest, it focuses a lot on conversation which is a great idea. the others lean heavily on vocabulary and spelling while this one puts what you learn in real life situations. another well put together app that allows you to skip ahead to the section best suited for your learning. in all, i would recommend having babble and one of the other apps to learn as much as you can: vocab, spelling, speaking, and conversation.
tide. this app is a free one with no ads that sets a timer, plays some white noise for you, and has different, beautiful backgrounds each day. although, this app only has five different sounds but the timer is what we’re really here for. another disappointment is that you can still leave the app and not have your timer be broken which can allow for you to stray from the task at hand.
forest. oh forest, another know one that i just must repeat. this app provides rewards for keeping on track and working hard. each session you set a timer and plant a tree. if you leave the app the tree will die. over time, you’ll begin to plant a forest and receive rewards. the only drawback, it costs two dollars.
other useful apps
motivate. ever in a slump? wanna give up? this app will provide you with quick motivational speeches to get you moving. new videos keep getting uploaded and are a great joy to watch.
h2opal. water. we need it and sometimes we just tend to not drink enough. h2opal is a water tracker that is simple and fun to use. the design is beautiful and the water graphics have kept me entertained for hours. this app shows you whether or not you’re on track for your water consumption and is easy to insert data.
I have spammed 3 of my reps with 5 faxes each with the same message tonight.
Send “Resist” to 50409 to start the fax system.
You’ll give your name and address when prompted.
Select who you want to send messages to.
Just send “Congress” if you want to send to your rep, governor, and senator at the same time.
Type your message, as long as you want it to be, then send “done.”
After that, you have the option of starting over, adding to it, etc. If you’re done, send “send.” It’ll tell you it’s queued up the messages/faxes, and then send you a confirmation when the faxes/messages were delivered.
Honestly, if these people aren’t sick of me by the end of the week and into next week, then I haven’t done my job. I plan on recording voicemails tomorrow to send them as well. I’ll just keep sending both all week. They won’t get any of it until after Thanksgiving, but they’re getting them dammit.
Feel free to join me in annoying the hell out of our government to stop the elimination of net neutrality. I don’t plan to go down without kicking and screaming and bugging the shit out of these people.
These two apps/systems are great for people like me with severe anxiety and can’t make phone calls to save ourselves.
The message/fax system is called Resist, and the voicemail leaving app is called Stance.
study tips that helped me get back on my feet after a year of unmotivation
>>> set a little bit to do each day!! homework, study, anything! ik you have a lot to do and it seems like a whole heap of impossible at the moment, but once you do that little bit you’ll find it easier to keep on going. if not, then that’s okay, you’ve already done your small bit of productivity and you can go again for the record tomorrow.
>>> put your goal up somewhere you can see it everyday. every time you think of procrastinating, see it and remember it and how much you want to achieve it.
>>> get the app forest for iOS/android. it’s only $3 and its well worth it for all the time you’ll save that you’d be otherwise looking at your phone. also the free chrome extension so you don’t procrastinate on websites you shouldn’t be on.
>>> start your assignments the day you get them!! i can’t stress this enough. you don’t have to do a whole heap, but it’s so much easier once you’ve done the first bit to keep on going from where you left off, especially on off days.
>>> pick the topic of your assignment first up. this overlaps a bit with the last one, but personally, this is the hardest bit for me – i’ve spent so many weeks trying to pick a topic, just to do it a few nights before. once you’ve picked your topic, every time you hear something on it, your brain will subconsciously save and gather the information for you, and you can use that for your assignment.
>>> play ambient noise in the background! tide is really good, and so is relax ms, both available on iOS for free (you’ll have to check for android). there are also heaps of other noise apps, just search them up (i usually search sleep noises). i normally play music to study to, but on days where i just can’t concentrate, i usually just end up singing along. ambient noise really says, you’re here right now, and this is what you’re gonna do.
>>> take! care! of! yourself!! there’s no point in doing assignments if you are literally too tired to focus, or too hungry to think, or even just stressed about your day at school/uni. take some time out. sleep, eat, meds, water, and if it helps, put on a face-mask and do some journalling. get all the bad vibes out.
note: these tips worked for me but everyone is different. i really hope these tips help you and if not, i still believe you’ll get there! <3 if you are having a lot of off & unmotivated days for no apparent reason, make sure to see a doctor. ily!
