Ivy Divider

CEA_book-readingLet’s all breathe a sigh of relief. The 2014-15 college application cycle has run its course, we have finally gotten a full night’s sleep, and the weekly link roundup is back after its peak-season hiatus! We’re feeling pretty blissed out these days, so the theme of this week’s roundup is ~*~inspiration~*~.

The school year is winding down and high school seniors are finally decompressing, but we see you, juniors. We know your status as “rising seniors” is probably beginning to dawn on you, but before you give in to the impulse to get stressed out, take a moment to get excited, visualize yourself at the school of your dreams, and strike a power pose or two. This summer is going to be awesome.

  • This 16-year-old entrepreneur spends his summers building his business. Have an idea or passion project of your own? We say, go for it!
