This is, I believe, my second (third?) link love.
Lots of great content came out of the woodwork in the blogopshere this week, and I finally have time to catch up on everyone’s blogs after a long and hard semester.
I’ve been loving my week off. I did have a final exam this week, but I didn’t study very much (which I’ll probably feel the result of in my final grades) so I had enough time to get together with friends, sleep a little more, hang out with the boyfriend, cook, clean (ha, ha – I had time, I just didn’t do it ), and read a little. Oh, and Christmas shop. It’s only a week away and I’m still not done. I have never left it this long.
In any case, I’ve really enjoyed catching up on some great posts!
FB at Fabulously Broke discusses the importance of investing in your appearance, a sentiment with which I completely agree. As a business school student, and someone who is frequently starting new jobs, I tend to go by the adage “dress for the job you want, not the one you have”. I’ve never seen a super successful business person looking disheveled.
Andrea at Soo Over Debt made me laugh out loud (thereby possibly waking my poor boyfriend up from his slumber early in the morning) with her post about 10 ways to make sure nobody reads your blog. The worst part, is that I’m completely guilty of some (most?) of these points!
Newlyweds on a Budget had a great post on whether you would rather be poor and in love, or rich and single. What do you think? I think most people would pick poor and in love, but I choose neither! Oh, wait, wasn’t that an option?
Shannyn from Frugal Beautiful wrote a great post on how to save money as a student in college. Student discounts are great, and if you ask for one on everything, the savings can really add up. And as you all know, I definitely think it’s important to apply for aid! I never did, and then the one time I did I got $500 in the mail at random. Great post.
Ninja posted on Punch Debt in the Face about luck, and how eager some are to pin successes on luck. The truth is, it’s usually not luck – it’s usually hard work and lots of dedication that gets you places. I complained of this one time on my Blogger blog, and it still bugs me!
Finally, I want to give a huge CONGRATS to my friend Katie at Girl with the Red Balloon for graduating college!! I am personally super happy for her (albeit a little jealous) and admire all of her hard work to get through it all. GO KATIE!
