I was like ok I gotta do it for I’m like you guys deserve it. I have the iPad pro just the newest one and the 11 it just got face ID and all that and then the second generation Apple pencil. yeah I’m gonna kind of give you guys like a little tour of my notes and then also provide like an example of how I take notes and stuff it’s just gonna be a little walkthrough it’s not gonna be too professional I’ve seen some videos like this that are like really like professional and I’m like I’m just not that professional it’s gonna be a little bit more chilled but I hope you guys like it also I want to thank you guys. much for 6 K we are well over 6 K right now as I’m filming this but just thank you guys. much like I don’t know what I’d do without you honestly. thank you guys. much for all the love and support recently. if you want to see what’s on my iPad Pro and kind of like how I take notes let’s go ahead and get started. really quickly I’m going to tell you guys a little bit about my iPad I’m just gonna put the pizza on there because like I said this is the newest one with the face ID this is my background right now uh literally everybody was asking me where I got this iPad case from and it is Apple and I got it online at Apple but I think it’s in the pinks and color I think is what it’s called it’s really nice it’s called a smart folio. like it turns on when you open it you could have your iPad like set up like like this or however I really like it’s really nice and thin and then my pencil can just slide right on a lot of you guys were saying that you have this iPad or have I by pros or have iPads with the pencil but you weren’t sure how I’ll really take notes. this video is going to be for you and if you are like me and want to become like a paperless student if you will then I would definitely invest in an iPad I believe it’s a little pricey I’ll put all the prices on the screen right here for what mine cost it is a little bit of an investment it cost as much as my MacBook no not really a lot less than my MacBook but it is very expensive for a little iPad but I love it and like I said in my past few videos I don’t carry notebooks anymore I’m completely like paperless in that sense I used my binder with a little division like pocket folders and I have paper in there cuz like college requires you have paper but they’re like okay get out of these paper like you yeah if you got to turn something you gotta have these paper. I do use paper but for the most part I just take all my notes on this baby. yeah. a lot of you guys were telling me to use good notes and trust me I have been using a good notes ever since I got my iPad which is about three weeks ago and I’m obsessed. yes good no this is. so good and that’s you know taking app that I use currently. no this is not sponsored I’m gonna be talking about them a lot but that’s just that that I use. now we’re gonna go ahead and switch angles. you guys can get a better look. like I said it’s not gonna be too professional I hope you guys can see I’m gonna have to like hold it up maybe like that normally with a stylus if you put your hand down on the whatever you’re using like a Kindle or an iPad or whatever it may be whatever device you’re using it’ll write way your hand when your hand moves like it’ll like smear it on the screen or whatever but the Apple pencil only picks up what your pencil is writing. you can have like rest your hand because I know most people that you stylus you have to go like that but for this you can just put your hand on it and I really like that. this is the good notes app this is what it looks like when I go in and on the side right here it has that categories and my categories are in categorized which comes on the app schoolwork and trash.

I only made two categories school and work and work I’m not gonna show you guys because it’ll go videos but I basically organize my videos that way I do like if I’m mentioning something in a hall I’ll write it down just. I don’t forget it. you guys would see all my different notebooks that have the videos in them I am gonna go into school and this is what right here now I know a lot of people that for the categories they have like different they have their different subjects. they’ll have math religion film economics right here on the side and then they will have all their assignments for that class in that folder. that’s just too much for me I really just do school and then I have every single subject in a notebook because it’s like endless you can put as much paper as you want in here. are you guys are gonna like. you have my lip yeah. that’s kind of what I do. for math um I don’t really take notes I usually do that in my binder just because we are in a computer lab and she doesn’t want us like having like laptops or anything like that. I don’t really feel comfortable taking notes on this for that class.

I do have like a few notes on my binder but I’m gonna transfer those over here later but I was just doing math homework and it’s just like just little scribbles that I did. yeah that’s math film we don’t take notes he has powerpoints that he just gives us. this is what it is and I what I do is that one of my school’s not website but where we get our assignments from and where the teachers and professors like post things and you press the download as PDF or I think yeah or then I press copy into good notes and it put it right in here and you couldn’t write whatever you want all over it. I can just like write whatever it doesn’t like matter. I’ve only had this class twice cuz yeah and he hasn’t added the other notes yet but I just added the PDF or the slideshow and I can just write on it as I’m going but yeah. that’s for film religion is online.

I take notes like while I’m reading and the quiz questions and things like that sort and then economics I’ve only had this class once because last Monday was MLK Day but here’s a little bit inside of what my notes look like I didn’t get to finish that but he says he uploaded upload to them online I have to check and upload them into go notes and then if you click right there you can kind of get like an overview of what your notes will look like I don’t know it’s really cool and then I assume is my computing class I don’t take any notes in that class yeah because it’s literally a computer. I am going to give you guys an example of what I do. what I want to create a notebook I press the add right here for us to create a notebook and you can choose from all there’s like. many different kinds I normally go for the plain ones and let’s do pink. then you can type what it’s called. I’m gonna do at YouTube and then okay. right here is where you can write like I can write YouTube by the way in my handwriting it’s not pretty. I’m sorry about that but I’m not gonna do that to use the eraser at all I gotta do is double tap on the pencil and it erases.

I can add a text box right here usually I go into the app over and do it but I think I’m just gonna do it right here for time sake but I’m just a little text but over has a lot more better fonts like prettier fonts I like use over but for the sake of time I’m just going to do this. then you swipe to the right and you can add all these different papers. I could do change paper template you do ruled square plane cornell music landscape and like it’s. cool but. for like economics and math I’ll use graph but for normal I just use some really really awesome things about this is. if I wanted to our box you know normally you’d go like that and it wouldn’t be perfect but you can press this little emblem these little shapes right here in the corner and it’ll make the box for you and it’ll make it even. it’s really really nice and helpful it just I use that all the time and then of course like I said to erase you just double tap super simple and easy but what I normally do for taking notes is I will go oh you’d normally use black and I use the second to last one you can do it custom and do whatever but I normally just use one of the presets and. alright like I said sorry my handwriting is literally not the best. I’ll write YouTube’s example then I’ll go right here and draw a box over it and then I’ll press on the highlighter and it’s really cool cuz as all these different colors and normally just pick like a pink or whatever color I’m feeling and then just kind of go in nothing too crazy just something very simple and that’s normally what I do. if I mess up and when I erase all that completely I pressed the back button and if I didn’t mean to do that I press the forward button like it’s really cool in that sense I can also if I want to move this text down here I press this button right here draw a line around it and I can move it like that. that’s really really cool. normally for notes like I said I’ll just outline it in a box and highlight it and all that fun stuff that’s my heading obviously I’ll put the date over here and then I’ll just begin writing my bullet points and highlight in all that fun stuff it’s nothing too crazy and it’s super easy it’s just like writing on paper. super easy just like that and that’s pretty much all I do and then to make a new page like say I run out of room I just pull over to the next page and I can also change this to whatever kind of paper I want the opportunities are endless with this app I absolutely love it you can add text box like I did earlier I can add image book more also another really cool feature is if I want to write really small what I can do is move this over here and I want to write on line and it’s like super small and defined. I really really really like that but that’s pretty much it you can do it by dater name it’s really cool and if you have a lot you can just search for documents up here you can print these off and put it in a binder if you want if you don’t like reading notes from like a screen like this but you want to take notes on an iPad I would definitely recommend printing it to a wireless printer or whatever and then putting it in a binder you can also type like I said you enter the text box and you could just type your notes but I really like writing it because it’s just like writing on paper it’s a really really smooth and nice and easy the opportunities are endless and I absolutely love it also to put the pencil and to charge it you just just clicks right to the side like a magnet. guys that is pretty much it for how I take notes on my iPad I just wanted to do a quick little demo for you guys and give you a tour of my notes even though I haven’t been in school but for only two weeks and I haven’t taken that much notes and then kind of just show you what it’s like writing notes and all different kind of tricks and stuff I didn’t want to do too much and like just showing you guys like what I’m writing if you would like and in depth like we copied in my notes over or like a way more in depth one than just let me know but I just thought for the sake of time and simplicity to just make it short. you guys can get the idea you know you know what I mean I really really hope you guys enjoyed this it was. requested and I’m going to give it to you guys because a lot of you guys were curious how I take notes if you enjoyed it make sure to give it a thumbs up subscribe to my channel down below if you are new here make sure you click the notification bell. you get notified every time I upload a new video which is there Wednesday and Sunday don’t forget to follow me on my social medias always linked in the description box below and I’ll put them on the screen right here I love you guys. much thank you again. much for watching I will see you very soon in my next video Wow

Writing Prompts To Do With Your Friends | Ali Standish

Hey, everybody, and welcome to my home and to my office. I am Ali Standish, I am the author of The Ethan I Was Before, Bad Bella, and August Isle. And soon to be How to Disappear Completely.. I’m gonna tell you guys a little bit about my new book, How to Disappear Completely. And give you an idea for an exercise, a writing exercise, that you might be able to use to help keep you connected to a friend or two during this kind of difficult and isolating time.. How to Disappear Completely is about a girl named Emma. And Emma is, at the beginning of the story, dealing with the fact that her grandmother has just passed away. And it’s not just her grandmother, because Gram was was more than that to Emma, Gram was really Emma’s best friend. And after Gram dies, Emma starts noticing white spots appearing on her skin. And before long she realizes that she has vitiligo. Which is an autoimmune condition that takes away the pigment from patches or spots on her skin and leaves them really pale.

And vitiligo is a really common condition. It’s not dangerous, it’s not contagious. There are actors and ballerinas and even supermodels that have vitiligo. But depending on who you are, how confident you are, where you live, what kind of community you have, how accepting they are, it can be hard to stand out. And when you have vitiligo, your skin takes on two tones and you do stand out. And.

Emma is struggling to figure out what this is gonna mean for her, that her skin is changing in this way. At the same time that she’s dealing with missing her Gram, who’s the person that she would have turned to for advice about how to find her way through this. And. all of a sudden in a matter of weeks her life has become really unrecognizable and really difficult in some ways that she never could have imagined. And if that sounds familiar, that’s because that’s how a lot of us are feeling right now too, right? A few weeks ago it was life and business as normal, and now things have changed in some ways that are making day-to-day life really difficult and stressful and worrisome for a lot of us.. after Gram dies, Emma goes into the forest to this special place that she and Gram shared together called the Spinney. And in the Spinney there’s a tree, that you can see here on the cover, and there’s a hollow in this tree where they keep a journal. And you can see Emma here on the cover writing in this journal. And in this journal they take turns writing fairy tales together..

Emma will write one chapter, and then Gram will write the next chapter. And they’ll keep going that way until they have a complete fairy tale. And after Gram’s death, Emma comes back to the Spinney and she decides that she wants to start one last story. Because even though there’s no one there to help her write it, writing is a way for her to process what’s happening to her. But also to escape her anxieties and her fear about the future and her grief about Gram. And I’ve often found that writing can do the same thing for me, that it helps me to escape wherever I am in my head. Whatever I’m worried about or afraid of or stressed out about. I can hop into a story that I’m writing and all of a sudden I’m somebody else. And I’m in a different time or a different place or maybe even a different world.

And maybe you’ll find that writing can help you to do that, too. And that is especially coming in handy at a time like this where you’re not actually able to leave the house except maybe to go for a walk or a jog. Writing can at least help you to escape in your imagination.. that you get a break from what’s on the news, from worrying about what’s gonna happen. You get a break from your annoying little brother who won’t leave you alone that you’re stuck in the house with all day, or your chores that you’re having to do. And writing collaboratively, the way that Gram and Emma do, where they write the story together, is a really great exercise right now. Because it can help you to stay connected to somebody that maybe you’re not able to see face to face, a friend or a family member or even a teacher or a group of friends. It also is just a really cool way to write in general. Because. often we get this idea for a story that we’re really into and we think it’s really cool, but we’re not sure how to actually turn it into a full story. And when we have someone that we’re writing with, a writing partner, that can become easier.

Because every time we hit a bump in the road, we hit that writer’s block, we can pass it off to them. And they can have it for a little while and put their ideas into it and bring it back to you. And all of a sudden the story has taken this really cool new direction that you might never have thought of on your own. And. collaborative writing can be really fun that way and take a lot of the pressure off solo writing.. I’m gonna read you the first chapter that Emma writes when she goes into the woods after Gram dies.

And if you have your own idea to start a story that you want to share with a friend, that’s awesome. If you want to take the first chapter of Emma’s story and use it as your own. And then write where you think the story should go from there, that’s awesome, too. And I can be your writing collaboration buddy and I’ll hand you the story from here.. this is Emma going into the forest to write the story. She has gotten the journal out of the tree and she’s looking down at these empty pages in the journal that she wishes she could have been filling with Gram. The empty sheets sting my eyes and claw at my throat. Gram and I should have filled this whole book together. And the idea that the pages will stay blank forever now is unbearable. There’s still a pencil nestled in the journal and I find myself picking it up. It feels good in the crook of my thumb, like it belongs there.

I’m not ready to go back home, but I don’t wanna be here in the Spinney alone either. I wanna be somewhere else entirely. I wanna climb into the journal and into the world that Gram and I created and never, ever leave.. I begin to write. Once upon a time, there was a small cottage that sat halfway between a village and a great wood, as if it could not decide to which it belonged. And inside the cottage lived a girl named Ivy and her grandmother whom she called Gram. Ivy had lived with her grandmother ever since she was a baby, and her grandmother had lived in Poppy Cottage since any living soul could remember.

Ivy loved her grandmother more than anything in the world, and she loved the cottage second best. There was not always enough firewood to stay warm nor food to stay full. But even on nights when they were hungry and cold Ivy and Gran were always in good cheer. They huddled close together and Gran whispered stories of olden times, before magic had been stamped out and magical creatures driven to extinction. The more Gran spoke, the warmer Ivy’s cheeks felt, the more her belly seemed to fill even if she only had a crust of bread for supper. Each day Ivy and her grandmother walked into the great forest where Gran collected herbs and leaves. That she made into remedies to heal the villagers of their aches and pains. As they went, Gran taught Ivy the names of all the plants and trees that grew there. Until she knew each like it was her own. Some days they walked. deep that Ivy forgot there was anything beyond the forest borders. And she emerged from its shadows puzzled to find Poppy Cottage standing just where she had left it that morning. The villagers whispered dark things about the forest, but it held no fear for Ivy.

And yet she sometimes saw things there that she could not understand. One instant her grandmother’s skirts would brush against a dead cottonwood tree and the next its branches were covered in tender green leaves. Towers of dappled foxglove blooms blossomed wherever she walked.

And if Ivy and Gran happened to shut their eyes in a bed of ferns, when they awoke a red fox would often be curled up next to Gran, its pointed face resting in her lap. Sometimes Ivy awoke in the night to see her Gran treating the forest animals by the dim light of the cottage’s fire. She dressed their wounds and gave them remedies just as she did for the villagers in the daylight. If Ivy didn’t know magic to be gone from the world, she might wonder if Gran had a drop or two running in her veins.

Perhaps it was that magic that strung the days all along together, like holly berries on a winter garland, into one long, ripe, ruby afternoon. Ivy felt certain that it would go on forever and ever, and she and Gran would be together always.. that’s the first chapter of Emma’s story. Like I said, you’re welcome to borrow it and use it as a first chapter for your own story.

In the book, Emma doesn’t expect that anybody’s gonna write back to her because Gram is gone. And the next time she goes into the Spinney and picks up the journal, it’s to find that actually someone has picked up her story where she’s left off. And part of the mystery of this book is Emma trying to figure out who is writing to her, who knows about the secret place and the secret journal.. if that sounds interesting to you, this book is available for preorder right now and it’s gonna be out on April 28th. Now is a great time to be ordering from your local independent bookstores, this book or any book. I’m gonna leave you all with one quote because I think it’s important right now. We know that we need to be washing our hands, we know that we need to be keeping social distancing in place. But it’s also really important that we take care of ourselves and our mental health.

And part of the way that we can do that is by using our imagination as a way to escape the daily news and to escape the confines of our houses. And. I wanna leave you with a quote that Gram gives to Emma about what imagination is and what it can mean. Imagination is one of the greatest gifts we have. If we build it up strong enough, it can be anything we need it to be.
