Today only, shutterfly is offering 1 free sheet of address labels! The coupon code is FREELABELS. You will have to pay shipping ($1.99) and tax ($0.05 for me in MA), but for $2.04 these are a great deal. Instead of address labels, I sometimes just personalize them with “From the library of…” and put them on the spine of my professional books. Great way to keep track of them!
For me, winter break is all about the 4 Rs: recharging, rejuvenating, relaxing, and resting. Getting some sleep, catching up on reading, visiting with my grandparents, and going to the gym. A girl could get used to this!
Have you heard of Coursera? If not, you have to check it out. It’s a website that offers free online classes from top universities throughout the world. Some classes have upward of 20,000 students at a time. I’m currently enrolled in a class from Duke University about philosophy and constructing arguments. You don’t get college credit, but many courses offer a completion certificate. From their website: “we hope to give everyone access to the world-class education that has so far been available only to a select few. We want to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.”
