It's a picture of a school block with colour blocking, oh the puns excuse my terrible humour and my inadequacy of writing anything worth reading. Here goes a rant about University, Scholarships and tastes for Architecture. All of the previous things are closely linked and after sometime of wanting to become a doctor then finding out I faint at blood, my hate for sewing, the list goes on, I have thought about studying Architecture at University.
