We spend a lot of our work day on Twitter (Follow us @SurvivinCollege!) and one of our favorite things about tweeting all day is finding cool links from the college blogging sphere. Confession: sometimes we get so deep into the Interwebz that we forget how we got there in the first place. One link leads to another, and, well, you get the gist. Hey, everyone deserves a study break now and then, right? These are our favorite links of the day, found in the tweets of our favorite people/sites. What better way to wrap up the day than another excuse to procrastinate?
