This semester, I often needed to pass long hours in libraries as a large quantity of readings from the contemporary architecture class ruined my daily life. Of course, it is hard to read and understand academic papers in English when your mother language is another. I need to say that I had tough times with these readings. Usually, I, therefore, go to the Boston Public Library and yet, at times, my school’s own library is my preference. We are fortunate as the college is located on Newbury Street, having a great street view. When I am bored of reading, my escape is sketching. This sketch is from there, overlooking the Back Bay and the Prudential.
