Links We Love: October 19, 2014

Like these recent, not-so-hot October days, unexpected surprises are always a part of any school semester. Whether it’s doing surprisingly well on a midterm, having a class cancelled or winning the lottery (hey, someone has to), there’s always something that might brighten your day. So add to that list of possibilities with a brand new list of links we love!
