I’m drowning in a pile of review guides and flashcards. April showers have completely flooded my brain with preparations for the End of Course Tests (last week), the AP exam (May 15!), and final exams (last week of school). April wasn’t my best blog month, considering I opted out of two out of four of my Friday discussion posts. I’m debating about changing my schedule around again, but it won’t be happening for May. In addition to that, instead of being way ahead on my reviews I’m slowly falling farther and farther behind. Hopefully May will get me back on track!
