The AP Bio exam is today at 12PM, which is good because I got to sleep in, and not so good because…I have to take the test. But once this AP is done, a great weight will be lifted off our shoulders— LAST AP EVER.
I guess I haven’t been sharing my moves with you much this week, so here’s what I’ve been doing:
Monday: 5 min row + TRX arm workout (something like this or this) + random ab exercises + plank
Tuesday: rest + Blogilates
Wednesday: rest + some burpees and walking in there
Thursday: ~60 air squats, pushups, and sit-ups (I had been chipping away at the 100 challenge while studying) + modern dance class
Friday: We shall see!
Alrighty then! While I’m scavenging my noggin for my knowledge on cells, DNA, and evolution, you can all read some of this week’s Fascinating Friday Links. Enjoy!

Eep! Thanks for sharing, Alison! I feel so special when I make a link love 🙂
of course! that ice cream looks INCREDIBLE.
Heyyy I hope the bio exam went fabulously well! These all sounds super good..”What it’s like to wait until your wedding night” snagged me immediately hah! I absolutely love that there’s still a glimpse of..sacredness almost – in this day and age. I am strong in that belief; and will be holding off on alot of things until wed 😉 .
I actually have an office appointment scheduled tomorrow. I know :rolling eyes: . Buut it’s all in the name of getting some of the work-load of my shoulders, so I’m slightly excited.
Have fun with Ben 🙂 .
Sacredness indeed. That was such a beautiful post!
Hope you’ve had a productive day today, Ms. J! Have a great weekend 🙂
Thank you for sharing my post :)!
Hi Alison! Thanks for linking to my blog again ^_^ I appreciate it!

Have a great weekend seeing your bro and good luck on the test!!!
Love you girl!😘💕
Thanks so much, Katie!
Good luck on your AP Bio test! I remember taking mine two years ago and I’m pretty sure i started making up names for things. I at least hope they had a good laugh while reading my test.
It went pretty well…I mean, I didn’t finish some of the essays (as in, I skipped a whole question), but guatever. It’s over! Thanks, girl!
When’s your birthday?! I just might have to send you some carrot cake! Don’t mind if it’s half eaten by the time it reaches you 😉
next Sunday 😀
Wait, I just got my birthday wrong. Next Saturday. Ha.
Thanks for including my post in your round up! 🙂
Last AP ever? That deserves a trip to australia. Right?
Ugh I wish. Or at least gelato. Three scoops.
Thanks for the link love chica! ❤ How do you like Blogilates? I've been thinking about trying it out!
She’s so bubbly and awesome! Highly recommend Blogilates 🙂
Awesome links! I hope your AP exam went well!!
