    Mr. V !!!!
    Today I found all my poems I wrote in Pen vs Paper. I started crying first period in my study hall class. They were all about that “certain person”, and I lost it. The poems were really cool, because I was able to see my thoughts right through them. I can’t believe what was going through my mind! I don’t know how you dealt with all our boy poems. I hope your enjoying your new job, and I can’t wait to see you on Halloween! I have interesting information to tell you. It may contain rants about a few people and you will probably laugh at me. Also, I will have to share the books I have been reading in book club. Appreciate this lovely fall weather since it will soon be gone, (nothing gold can stay <3). Forever Your Student,
    Julia Zaborszki
