Working full-time as editors for Spoon University, we see dozens of incredible articles every day. Our office is constantly buzzing with conversations over one great article or another. Because so many articles are published on Spoon, not every one of them can be shared to our Facebook page. But just because some pieces aren't shared to one of our social media accounts doesn't mean it's not incredibly well written.

We, the editors at Spoon University, have compiled a list of 10 of our favorite articles from the month of January. These articles are in no particular order and we wanted to share them with you now simply because we think they're fabulous.
