    I'm doing a series of short courses. Fashion, ceramics, photography lots over the year (I hope). Things I always wanted to do but never really had the opportunity. I'm kinda shy/awkward around new people in real life so I kinda hoped this adventure would help. :o:

    I really enjoy the courses. Particularly fashion: designing and making something myself. It's harder fitting in the UK than I would have hoped, but I suppose that's part of the process.

    Oh don't worry. I'm quite nosey myself.
    How endearing. :o: About your shy personality. :giggle:

    It's lovely that you're taking time out to explore and do what you want to do. Some people - sadly - wouldn't take the time. I've always wanted to do Photography myself... what do they exactly expect of you? :o:

    Yes it's always hard fitting into somewhere else, especially for the first time. Your aforementined small community sounded greatly contrasted to London so easy fitting was probably not to be expected. :o: All an experience though. It becomes easier over time of course - if me living in the countryside for a few months was any indicator... London really is a great city after all...

    back to normal

    I went, gave it in, then came back, im tired but ive eaten now, also kind of wet
    I'm glad to hear, for both except for the wetness. :giggle: Dry yourself and chat? I'm happy to hear you didn't oversleep at least. Does take the effort part away somewhat if you can't give the work in.

    Presumably, foundation is still situated at Back Hill in Archway? How are you finding it? :smile: - I was mainly at Charing Cross Road. The atmosphere at CSM is quite unlike any other institution in the UK, if only due to it being an art school and how internationalist it is. :tongue:
    No my foundation course is at LCF. Although I'm doing a few short courses at Saint Martins too. The whole UAL thing.

    I'm loving the course. It's also so international and I've met people from all walks of life I think it's broadened my my mind somewhat if that makes sense? :o: I really don't know if I want to go onto read medicine now.

    That's something I'm troubled by.

    How are you finding NYC?

    I didn't have the opportunity yesterday to comment on your work situation, mainly because I only posted for the picture spam. I hope you manage to resolve this. It's rather ironic that the public health service have consistently failed to acknowledge, or more precisely, ensure that their employees are able to work sufficiently. I agree that something definitely needs to be done when you return. :sadnod: :hugs:

    Thanks :hugs: I'm taking the opportunity to really have a good job search. However that will have to wait until the pain eases a bit - these painkillers are very strong and are making me lightheaded and drowsy.

    The foundation is primarily intended to prepare post A-Level students for undergraduate degree entry. The main purpose is to acquire a basic understanding of art and design practice, while developing a portfolio of work. CSM has a general foundation, but its integral school, Byam Shaw, is more specialist (fine art and/or architecture, I believe).

    It seems I've arrived at the right moment. As Vay has already confirmed, I'm a graduate of CSM. :smile:

    The photography course is pretty basic. presumes you know nothing and builds up from there.

    Chat with me then fall asleep like the baby you like to portray yourself as. :emog:

    I can ":emog:" you publicly know. It's my prize.

    Hmm, time to clean my room!
    Oh, hello! It's been a while since we've chatted. I read about your job at the call centre. From what you've posted, I believe you made the right decision. Earning money is important and productive, absolutely, but the moment you're abused and begin to hate it, you need to leave. It's not worth it, particularly considering you're intending to enter full time education soon. :yes:

    Oh, I see, interesting. :smile: - When you said that you studied at CSM, I assumed you were referring to the general foundation course. This is the first time I've heard (or read) of a course that's operated across multiple colleges of the UAL. Normally, you apply to one college and study there exclusively.

    I'm loving the course. It's also so international and I've met people from all walks of life I think it's broadened my my mind somewhat if that makes sense? :o: I really don't know if I want to go onto read medicine now.

    That's something I'm troubled by.
    Yes, definitely. That was a primary reason I enjoyed my time at CSM so much, the internationalism. I met people from all over the world, quite literally, thereby giving me the opportunity to visit them in their own countries during the holidays.

    In regard to choosing your prospective path, this is something you'll need to decide. I'm an advocate for pursuing what you enjoy and to follow your heart. That's what I did. :tongue:

    How are you finding NYC?
    Oh, I love the city. It does help that I had a social base already here, mainly from old school friends who chose to study and now work here. My husband is still adjusting to his new job and does miss his family and friends back in London, but that's only natural. :smile:

    Arrrgh. I hate, I do. :p:
    There really is nothing wrong with being shy. :o: I always made an effort - though it really didn't feel as much of an effort - to talk with those deemed to be shy. I guess this stems from my nature to be extremely talkative and provoke some sort of reaction - good or bad - though. :o:

    Oh? Does Vin like Vodka? I would have thought warm milk would do you just fine.

    Sorry, I should have said "wish to portray". To be honest you do seem more mature under the immature façade. :emog: Humour provokes such masking for some obscure reason. It could be equated y'know.

    CSM is definitely about pursuing your own creative identity, focusing less on the technicalities and more on the thought process behind your work. This is a contrast from art and design education in the US, which deterred my decision to study here for my undergraduate. :smile:

This is the first time I've heard (or read) of a course that's operated across multiple colleges of the UAL. Normally, you apply to one college and study there exclusively.
    Oh sorry I should have said UAL to avoid the confusion. It's not the same course. The Fashion foundation is at LCF (but specialises only in fashion y main interest), but I'm also doing short courses mainly at CSM. They aren't part of the foundation and only last a few weeks each. I wanted to try my hand at different areas of the arts out but keep my focus on fashion which only LCF offers.

    Yes, definitely. That was a primary reason I enjoyed my time at CSM so much, the internationalism. I met people from all over the world, quite literally, thereby giving me the opportunity to visit them in their own countries during the holidays.

    In regard to choosing your prospective path, this is something you'll need to decide. I'm an advocate for pursuing what you enjoy and to follow your heart. That's what I did. :tongue:
    I never expected to love this as much as I do. Fashion was just a hobby. I'm feeling a little anxious because I must decide very soon. Pursued my parents too. :woo:

    Oh, I love the city. It does help that I had a social base already here, mainly from old school friends who chose to study and now work here. My husband is still adjusting to his new job and does miss his family and friends back in London, but that's only natural. :smile:
    You English is perfect I can't believe your from Japan! how did you learn to master it to that standard? I'm guessing you have friends in NYC from CSM?

    Oh you must go to Katz Deli and have their pastrami sandwich (unless of course your a veggie). It's to die for. :sogood:

    Brooklyn has a big arts scene, kind of like Shoreditch in London.
