    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:
    I see. I really can't imagine an art based course without pursuing your own creativity if i'm honest. It'd be like Literature without following your thoughts but being told what to think*cough*A-level english*cough*. :tongue:

    Vodka is my favourite spirit:yep:

    :hmpf: its not often people see through it :tongue:
    Mine is most probably absinthe. Very dangerous though - best left alone at times.

    You'd be surprised how little people you might be actually fooling Vin. Though it's endearing you try to do so regardless. :emog:

    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:
    I'm fine with the friends I grew up with but its just when I'm meeting new people. It's like i come across as a complete :laugh: moron.


    I see. :beard: I assume it's one based on personal style and curiosity? As is what I think most art is...
    Well you have a set project in different areas like portraiture, deadpan, and theory. I'm not that great but I've learnt a lot and I enjoy it.



    Ahaha. :giggle: I imagine it must be quite exhilarating though. But I understand it can be quite surprising. Still surprises me that i'm in one of the best cities in the world and have been for most of my life. :yes:
    I like it a lot more than Paris. Although English people seem to apologise way too much, its actually quite :giggle: funny.

    I see. I've only ever orally ingested it so i can't speak for my nose. :erm: It does do brilliant things though - like vodka. Only faster and more interesting.

    Please do, the more the merrier. - On a site note, I'm originally from Japan and the language is my native tongue, so I'll be more than happy to help him too. :tongue:
    i'll let him know his a bit grumpy so be forewarned, but his lovely really.

    He was talking about the language being very logical but he was struggling with learning the characters. He got me into some great far east films. Hopefully there won't be a CSM-LCC rivalry between the two of you. :giggle:

    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.
    Oh, I see. That makes sense. I have to commend your ability to multitask and remain productive, it's a quality I'm beginning to lack myself. :o: - I underwent fashion design (womenswear) at CSM, originally undergoing my preparatory diploma at Bunka in Tokyo, which is probably similar to your course at LCF. However, I've since been working in advertising, specifically in graphic design, which I quickly came to realise was what I should have probably studied instead (why I pursued my postgraduate at RCA).

    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:
    My father really wanted me to study law, mainly because he is a solicitor, so when I informed him that I wanted to work in the creative sector, I could see he was disappointed. However, his mindset has changed after I've proven I can successfully work in this area and with a reasonable income too. :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?
    I'm of mixed race (half English, half Japanese) and grew up bilingually. I attended an international school in Japan where many of my classes were conducted in English too. Lastly, I left Japan when I was 18 to study (and later work) in the UK, so my English has drastically improved. I'm now 26, so I had been living in London for a while. I wouldn't say my English is perfect, though. :tongue:

    Oh you must go to Katz Deli and have their pastrami sandwich (unless of course your a veggie). It's to die for. :sogood:
    Kiki, a friend of mine (from CSM, incidentally), has already taken me there. I agree, the food is so good. :coma:

    Brooklyn has a big arts scene, kind of like Shoreditch in London.
    Again, I've been taken here before when I visited, although strangely not since I've moved. Now that you've reminded me, I'll go this weekend. :smile:

    Well if it's any consolation, you didn't seem at all like a moron to me when we first talked.

    I see. Well enjoying it is the main thing that has gone right with it. I actually wouldn't mind going to photography for that. :o: It sounds great to me... i'm a bit of a shutter bug.

    I like London more than Paris too. Hong Kong is probably equal to London, though I look at it through rose tinted glasses. New York is equal less than London right now. :giggle: All the cities i've mentioned are lovely and wonderful though.

    Memorising the kana is the trickiest part, I'd imagine, not so much the hiragana or katakana, but the kanji. I was fortunate in that I grew up looking at the alphabet. I'm doing the same thing, only with hangul (the Korean alphabet), which is not easy. :tongue:

    I respect and acknowledge the differences between both colleges, so I wouldn't say anything. :giggle:

    It's not usual she finds a member with common history. The interest is warranted. Sania's loving this too probably.

    How about we get drunk? Much alcohol where you are?

    My friend has been making cocktails - as I think I said before.

    I'm keeping count... have probably had around 8 shots worth so far and feel completely fine.

    I know what she wants to do to me. :cry2: She wants to get me drunk and then mess with my novel organisation system - not overtly, just obscurely. The odd book put 1 too many books down. The turning over of a book so it isn't the right way round - this is a ***** when the books don't have labels or covers.

    Fair enough Vin. I was curious as to how tipsy/drunk Vin would post though. :o:

    It's not the middle of the day. :o: It's almost 3pm. Unless you're living halfway between me and Aiko, in which case how's russia/the ocean?

    Typing when drunk isnt all that hard, I can type reasonably well - you'd only know I was drunk as my thought process gets really random and I'm fancinated by inanimate objects and I end up typing strange things....:erm: Although you all know this already since I've been on a few times when less than sober :mmm:
