Rewind & Review #65

Created by Shae Has Left the Room

~I finished my online biology course. That's a load off my shoulders.
~I started studying for my American Lit CLEP exam, which I'll take later this week.
~My birthday was the 16th! Presents and cards started rolling in a few days before. I spent the 15th with my BFF, which was lovely, and then my parents and I went up to the Shenandoah Valley for the weekend. (More about this in a future blog post.)
~I started thinking about going back to school, since we leave in less than three weeks. Which means I have to fit in a ton of reading, writing, blogging, and other activities into the next few weeks.
