Hi buddy,

How’s it going? I am doing a project for my health studies and I need someone (a friend like you, maybe!?) to help me. It’s really important! Can you help? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Here’s what I need you to do: can you write me an email and tell me about your day and everything you do. All the fun things and all the stressful things. When you’re being “assaulted by the clocks of modern urbanity” and when you’re more chilled out.

Oh, by the way, your teacher has asked if you can use linking words and write in paragraphs. Is that okay?


see you next week,
