They say, exchanges to other schools are the times, when students take a break from life, go abroad take few classes and enjoy new places and people. Well I am a bit different. I do not know why, but when I am taking part of something, at this moment being school, and being the priority of my momentum, I go about it with the same way I go about enjoying food. I don’t know why, but I can enjoy food, I mean I do enjoy it, but I consume it more than taste it. I eat fast and does not matter if I eat every 5 hours, once in 32 hours, just matters if I am hungry or not.
I came to L.A. and enrolled in 6 classes. Even though I don’t work anymore and live 5 minute walk away from the Design Studio, where my desk is situated I still do not sleep much or do anything else much besides school. It’s been a month and I have not seen anything around L.A. and frankly I do not care much, I can come down here any time if I wish much, just got to work for it. But truly I want to enjoy my trips to the fullest, and that would count for going with my friends. Hollywood sign, so what. Personally it does not change much in my life, and it does not give much experience to me. It’s more an excuse to check-mark your life. Rather with friends, yes it would be different, when I can enjoy the experience with others sharing multiple perspectives towards the surrounding.
I just had a laugh yesterday, after I went to see Cirque Du Soleil. It was amaing. But it’s ironic that I moved to L.A. and first show I go to is Canadian. Beats 3 years oversees in Toronto. But jokes keep up coming. Went to see how college kids relax last night. Well I mean Art college kids. Trust me a complete different story. I am not gonna go into much detail but I do not understand what my life is trying to show me or where I am taking my self. “Relaxation” as I know it, Friday night as Yoosters knows it are something unspeakably alien to North America. That is not what makes me laugh though, just sad. But the fact that we we’re just kicked out of the Design Studio and they put on closing hours from 24/7 to 6:00-00:00. Don’t blame me.
Shit. I cannot believe it. What is wrong here. I am not seeking out anything with-in my field, because lets face it I do not have a car here. I can’t afford that shit. I am a student with out a chance to work or earn money, and its stated by law that I have to take full credits being 6 clases for my semester, or I go bye bye. I chose the schools offered housing that costs a lot, but I didn’t know that I will be treated as a child. If I bring a bottle of alcohol with-in the housing complex I get thrown out of the housing with no refund. While my friends in Europe buy beer on campus and drink in school. It’s not about drinking. It is just hilarious how many blockages people put on each other over in North America.
Life’s great and the experience is nevertheless the most important and most valuable part of life. I am getting tired, and I need to wake up tomorrow early to do 3 class homework at least. So for now I will say, good night and I will slack on 2 language translation, but I give you at least something.
