Fascinating Friday Links #21

Hmm…Friday this week doesn’t quite feel like Friday.

MLK day + a half day on Tuesday + 3-hour delay on Wednesday = wonky week.

I’m not complaining at all though! I hope you all had a wonderful week, whatever the weather. If you’re in the midst of some super chilly temperatures, stay warm! Maybe you can find some time today or this weekend to cuddle up and check out some of these Fascinating Friday Links I’ve rounded up for ya. 🙂

I’ll be dancing practically all weekend. Tomorrow we have regular class and rehearsal in the morning and afternoon, and then a community performance in the evening. Sunday is the usual 4-hour rehearsal! So studying for midterms should be done tonight…. *sigh* It’s alright, maybe I can mix math with food again.
