Ways to Improve Your Life... No.2 - Write a Letter!

My best friend is drowning in work at Oxford, and thus over the summer we decided to be pen-pals. There are so many appealing things about letters as a form of communication, like the delicious surprise of finding an envelope with that all-too-familiar scrawl addressing you under a pile of bills.

They're never great works of literary merit. Usually we write useless facts about Ghandi, and stick furry animal stickers in the margins.

Nonetheless, the charm of a letter has never yet been equalled. So, share it with someone. Keep a stack of stamps in your desk and scribble random thoughts to old friends as the mood takes you...
