Sleepyti.me is absolutely genius - basically, it's a calculator that finds the ideal time for you to go to bed if you need to get up at a certain time, based on 90 minute sleep cycles. It'll help you find the perfect bedtime so you'll wake well-rested as opposed to groggy.

Also genius: That Can Be My Next Tweet. It mixes up words you've used in past tweets, and uses them to create new ones. For fun, our next tweets (Are you following us yet on twitter?! We're @collegefashion!), which are pretty amazing:
