Haikus about the first 2 weeks of the foundation::
It was a real breeze
We don’t ever want to leave
Let us do art please
Two weeks of college
Is a wonderful mind f**k
To be honest
It was amazing
Meet new people and new skills
Hope it really kills
I made some good friends,
on my day out to Southend
Hmm, how will this end?
Got in to college
Didn’t know what to expect
I have no regrets
