Fascinating Friday Links #22

Happy Friday!

Now that it’s Friday, it seems like the week by quickly, but I definitely did not feel that way during the week. It was pretty hectic, and I didn’t even get to post on Tuesday or Thursday 😦 Ah well. All that matters is that it’s Friday now, so let’s get groovy.



I want to thank you all for the congratulations on my acceptance to U of Maryland! For those who were wondering, it is in my top two right now (along with University of Virginia), so I’m pretty excited! I still have to hear back from Boston University, but that won’t be until March-April. I’m praying that God will help me make the right decision in the end!

Anyway, I’ll stop talking now and let you all get to reading some of this week’s Fascinating Friday Links!

So tell me:

Which links did you enjoy?

What are you doing this weekend? Tonight I’m going out to dinner with my best friends at a cute French café! Dance, teaching Sunday school, and homework are also on the agenda per usual.

Plans for the Super Bowl? I’m still not sure about my plans, but I know I’ll be having chili and cornbread (mostly cornbread).
