Thank you sooo much Mr. Peters for returning our essays :) It was very good feedback I (and I'm sure everyone else) received :) Thanks for a great first essay! :) About Essay 2... do you WANT us to do the narrative option or would you rather have us "play it (sorta) safe" and do the first option? I kind of started on the narrative option and I'll probably talk to you during class or I'll schedule an appointment. Thanks! :)

The comments on my essay were very helpful. High School teachers rarely give any good output but I actually know how to improve my writing now.
