Happy Friday! I’m finally getting rid of the jet lag that has been slowing me down since I got back home two weeks ago. I’m still catching up on news and some class work, but almost back to normal. Now I’ve just been trying to decide which classes to sign up for in the spring semester. I’m so happy that I only have three electives left to take, but that also means I should probably be a little more thoughtful about which to register for.
This weekend, I plan to finish going through my Iran photos because people want to see them, doing some volunteering, and hopefully seeing friends.
Here’s some links for the weekend!
