Dear Sir/Madam

I am sorry to inform you that Ms N is failing at life. This candidate was never the most focused of girls but we have seen more scholarly ambition in a newt. We gather she has a coursework due on Tuesday and exams in under two weeks - yet she spent the day frivolously. When we ventured to question her itinerary she told us 'I know I should be embarrassed, but St Trinian's wasn't that bad and Brand is quite hot in it'.

We told her this was unacceptable and she told us that she 'planned to work really soon', we then saw her watch her brother on Halo for a good hour, help him with his Jack Sparrow costume then watch Doctor Who behind a pillow and sing dreamily through I'll do anything. Currently she is sitting on her bed listening to IAMX who she informs us is 'totally cool, his music is amazing'. When we asked her when she was going to start some work she used colourful language that will not get her a degree in manners.

Yours Sincerely,

Board of Scholars.

When I had exams coming up, I sat and organized my novels into alphabetical order. The next day, I arranged my CDs. The next day, I sorted my clothes into colour order. Suddenly these things became SO IMPORTANT to me! The reason? I could not bear the thought of the amount of work I had to do, knowing that if I started it I would have to continue for hours until it was done.

Just tackle something small for now. A paragraph or something. You'll get there. :)
