I am out sick today and am writing this to you from my "comfy couch". Obviously, you will have a sub.
This is the plan: You are going top practice writing a more serious kind of letter - a college application letter. You need three paragraphs and you will ORGANIZE your writing so that you look and sound great while you write.
In your essay, you need to give three awesome character traits. I know this will be weird because you're bragging about yourself, but you have to sell yourself somehow. You also want to mention a negative character trait that you have and explain how you are working to improve it.
The "negative" example I always give is as follows: If I am disorganized, I have to take extra steps to ensure that I don't look disorganized. So I create schedules and reminders for myself online so I can be sure to keep on top of my natural inclination to be disorganized. Now I don't forget as often and people think I am organized! (See how I turned a negative into a positive? That's what I want you to do.)
Give it a try. I'll see you Tuesday. Behave for the sub!
