College life is great. I'm having the best time of my life. It's hard work, but I know that it'll pay off in the long run. Last week, I <fun thing you did> and had a blast! I've got <other fun event> going on next week, along with a full load of work from my classes. At a busy time like this, the last thing a young student wants to worry about is money. So, dearest <party you're writing to>, could you please send me <amount you need> as soon as possible? I'm getting tired of living on soup and <snack food> and it's getting harder to buy low-alcohol beer with my good looks. Please send the money ASAP. I promise I'll spend it wisely. Maybe.
