Need a good way to take notes in college

I really need a good note taking app for my iPad. I'm studying in the Computer Science major. I take Discrete Math, Software Design, Economics 101, and Precalculus. I'm currently using Noterize, but I don't like its lack of organization of notes. It doesn't really feel like a fully baked app. I would really prefer something that lets me type, scribble with my Pogo Sketch stylus, and also support bullet points. A really good UI would also be nice though not the most important. And third party export would be a nice plus. Are there any good apps like this?

What's My Motivation

How do you stay motivated in cubicle hell? I go through bouts of being motivated, sometimes for weeks. I am on top of my emails. I am making the phone calls. I am knocking down deliverables. I am having productive team meetings. And then something happens. I can't be bothered. I don't actively manage my inbox. My commitment to following GTD falls apart. I let certain things slip through the cracks. I just don't feel like doing any work. And then two weeks later I get motivated again. This has plagued me forever. Same thing in university. It's like I have ADD but instead of losing focus in the span of seconds, I lose focus in the span of weeks. How can I keep my foot on the gas pedal and feel like I am not a corporate bum half the time. Anyone else like this? Anyone have any tricks for keeping at a steady productive state?

Looking for a particular website

My PC crashed with all my bookmarks (bad me), and I can't remember a certain websites address nor can I find it on google. It was similar to this but showed apps that were designed to keep you more productive. People could comment below, and I found it very useful. I remember it had a brown logo at the top. I am sure some of my fellow metafites probably visit it. Shot in the dark.
