Weekend Links 01.25.2015
Hey kids! Sorry this weekend's weekend links are a late! My sister was in town, some interviews came up, and school started-- all in the last few days! (We start school on Wednesdays every semester-- weird, but it gives the weekend move-ins a chance to settle in before school starts again.) Anyway, I've been super duper productive all week. I started school, got started on some new projects, and did a lot of snail mailing! Speaking of, you guys should totally join the snail mail swap I'm running. You get to make a new friend, send a package, and get a package in the mail? And honestly, who doesn't love that? Sign ups are closing at the end of the month, so get on it! You get to know a new friend over email through the month of February, and send them a package in March-- it's super fun :) Anyway, here are your links!
