To the YV community, this is my response to the Warm-Up for English class today. We are studying Shakespeare’s Othello and exploring the theme of appearance versus reality.

Dear Karma,

I just found out the most tragic news of the century and that is we are both messing up in our English class. Ms.P will not have mercy on us and I don’t wanna sound harsh or anything but we are on the verge of not passing nor graduating so I would like to inform you to step your  game up to the highest level possible and knock this sucker out. But we good if she good.
