The time has come…AP testing is getting closer and closer! It’s practically creeping up on us. 😥 My teacher gave my class some advice to prep for the test, and one of them is to eat a good breakfast!

This week, my class and I did presentations on our blogs in English class.

When he found out that he had an irregular heartbeat, Hank was determined to conquer the problem when it began to affect his playing skills. The medications he took didn’t allow him to perform as well as he should so he began to cut down on the doses.
