It may sound strange of me to include the period of examinations. But I like the way teachers leave us, students, by ourselves to do our own revision.

Countless staircases, smelly and scary corridors, a room that is so small and a chatty roommate gave me such a negative first impression of where I am to be stuck in throughout college life. An impression that fortunately is not going to last… Countless Staircases and Odd-Smelling Corridors The seemingly countless staircases and endless…
