I know a lot of people like Excel, but as someone who uses it a lot at an advanced/niche level for work, I find it extremely frustrating. I would never pay money for such a piece of trash, and I think it only became popular because of its novelty and Microsoft's platform.

I disagree to some extent. I use Excel pretty much on a daily basis at home and at work, and it's pretty much a lifesaver. Even if its only credit is popularizing spreadsheets, that's very noteworthy.

Obviously it has weaknesses, just like any other program. I would consider it unfair to call it a piece of trash, though. Just because its functionalities have limits doesn't mean it's not worth the cost.

Today I was able to do a heck ton of homework (writing, filming, and creating a short how-to film for English, write and practice for an LEQ for AP World, do AP Physics review), study for tests (Latin, World, Physics), and get in 2 hours of violin practice (but it is currently almost midnight so maybe this doesn't go in my favor) without missing or half-doing anything.

Time management 8-)

I came home with a headache from ROTC PT and had to take an hour and a half nap at 7 to regain functionality. Luckily I had finished a lot of homework in class so I was able to sleep at my normal time.

I manage my time perfectly--I enter school with six classes' worth of homework, and get it all done before each class starts. This leaves me time to do anything (or nothing) after school. :P
