Fascinating Friday Links #6

Phew, this week has flown by! Did I say that last week? Or did I say the opposite, because I know that at one point I was saying this year was moving like a tortoise. Anyway, I feel like the last weekend just happened, and here we are at Friday again. No complaints though! Maybe it’s because we had some fun things going on at school this week like senior “Whiteout Wednesday.” Surprisingly, most of the grade participated and we made the classrooms look like either a blizzard (as my government teacher called the event) or heaven (according to my Italian teacher).

A lot of blog reading was done during my free time per usual, so now I get to share my weekly collection of favorite posts and articles! Also, let me know which posts interest you the most in the comments below, or share any cool links come across recently. I’d love to hear what you guys find fascinating too!
