Mid-November Round-Up

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, The Academic Wino will be taking a brief hiatus.  We will be back all new starting the week after Thanksgiving!


As always, I am always on the look out for guest bloggers!  If you have an idea, or are interested in writing but aren’t quite sure what to write about, please contact Becca at becca@academicwino.com/.

In the meantime, here is a round-up of posts I’ve written for you all since my last monthly round-up in mid-October!  Feel free to read any article you’d like, and don’t be shy about leaving your comments!
