Friday procrastination: link love – spring training, second hand books, and the ISS

by Cassie, Publicity Assistant

Hey guys, happy Friday! I’m not even sure what day of the week it feels like to me, as I was out sick for a ridiculous amount of time this week. But I’m feeling better(ish), and definitely ready for the weekend. I promise to try to do something other than sit on the couch. In the meantime, I give you these fun links to help you get through the day!
