Fascinating Friday Links #5

This week went by quickly for me! Hopefully you feel the same way, unless you wanted to savor it for whatever reason. This school year as a whole however, is moving as slow as a snail. I got really sad yesterday when I told my friends, “It already feels like the second semester…But it’s not.” Meep. What a downer I am. Even then, I am thoroughly enjoying senior year because I’ve got some great teachers and, of course, my best senior buddies (cheesy cheesiness)!

Also, the fall weather here in New York is just splendid, I must say. I love how people can wear short sleeves or a light sweater and be comfortable either way. My mom did help break out the boots–my favorite kind of footwear. Now I’m just anticipating the colorful foliage, which is kinda one of my favorite parts of living in the northeast.

Anyway, another Friday, another collection of fascinating links for you all to read, drool over, and ponder. 🙂
