It's 2012 and besides worrying about a Mayan apocalypse there is a whole new semester to look forward to. If you didn't finish quite the way you wanted to, then this is your chance to turn things around. If you were satisfied, I'd ask that you push yourself to do even better.
Today, while I was away at an AP workshop, you all worked on this year's Laws of Life essays. Bring your drafts in with you tomorrow and we'll complete final drafts in class. Remember, this is a chance to win some real cash for your writing!
See you in class tomorrow.
