Sorry for skipping Weekend Links last week and for coming out with this week's late into the weekend! I had my plate full since I was recovering from illness and working with the amazing Yuri Lowenthal and Tara Platt for my Voice Acting class. (That's a thing!) This weekend, I helped out my cousin who broke her foot Friday night. It's pretty fortunate that we both go to the same school for a lot of reasons, but this was a shining example, especially since her roommate was gone all weekend. Here are this Sunday's links!
