The little face is above one of the entrances to the Sugden building at college, I was so glad our biology lessons were to be held in this old building, it's an absolute gem. The course I'm on (Access to HE) is intended to help mature students into higher education if they've not got the A-levels, basically a biology A-level is crammed into the year-long course, also psychology and study skills. I failed biology when I first did my A-levels, I failed it so badly! The thing is, at the time I don't think I was mature enough, I'd coasted through GCSEs and thought A-levels would be similar. Yeah, you really can't coast through a biology A-level (unless you're of superior intelligence).
One of my favourite things about college is the drive there, I have to drive down a road I used to really hate because it's so narrow in places, I've learnt to enjoy this road though. One section has an odd blue-green shade of tarmac dotted with pink, another has eroding edges of orange silty soil & tumbling rocks. It's been a weekly treat to spot the subtle colour changes in the bracken as the seasons change, currently everything is in bud and blossom is appearing everywhere. So, that's my news! Oh, and I'll be entering a couple of small paintings in this year's Staffordshire Moorlands Open exhibition, held in the building adjoining the college!
