madd0ge asked: Are you originally from Moscow?? How's the university there??
Oh, hello :3 Yes, I live in Moscow and study in the architectural university. Many people (including me…) keep saying that there are a lot of things in our institute that are wrong, incorrect, even not fare or educative (expensiveness, some strange teachers, boring and not so effective lessons, lack of attention to students). But I do think that this words coming out from the tiredness and some kind of frustration. But everyone still love it, I can’t actually imagine studying in any other institute here. If you are interested in something, you’ll probably find it here! We have a lot of interesting stuff to do, you just have to search and ask for it. For example I can go to very expensive swimming pool absolutely free, and I’ve found a perfect drawing teacher for me. He listens to his students and do private consultations and stuff, and in summer we can go somewhere to draw, to make researches and also having fun with institute friends (one more plus of this institute - all the students are very close to each other, it’s easy to make friends here. Like everyone’s in one boat). And if you ARE interested in being an architect you can get good education here and also a work. Unfortunately (or not?) I explored that I’m interested more in drawing then in architecture, but I still studying to get bachelor diploma. I think architectural education is a very good foundation for your future life. (I hope I answered your question? I’m not actually sure that I did XD )
