I hope this finds you well. I also hope you are enjoying our classes together this semester as much as I am. I like what you’ve been doing with your hair lately. It would be much easier to concentrate in class if I didn’t know you weren’t wearing panties. I am writing in a circle in the hopes that you will not be able to read what I am writing. What are you planning on doing after graduation? I know I ask you this many times, because I always enjoy your derisive rejection of all the varied forms of life planning. I know you hope to end up in Hawaii or Wyoming but I hope that you will find time to visit me in Kiev someday. I wish that you would write more. Of all the girls who listen to Lana Del Ray and wear flannel, I believe your thoughts are the most interesting. I am jealous for them.
I will see you in class Tuesday.
