In case you missed it, February

Thank you so much for visiting Apply with Sanity.

I'd love to hear from you. What has been useful to you? What would you like to see in the future? What should I never attempt again? Here's a quick rundown of blog posts from February, just in case you weren't checking in every Monday and Thursday. But surely you're checking in every Monday and Thursday, right?

I shared some good tips from College Vine.
