because i do actually go to school here!
i do have homework at times, and some projects here and there.
It does feel more laid back than Bard. it might has to do with the way people are treating me as if i was a baby taking her first steps. Sometimes it seems like my teachers are afraid of the moment i’ll start crying in despair for not coping with their class.
maybe i’m taking it too far.
But really, Bard is a different story. I’m producing less physical work here, the time is ticking slower for each project. Or more like, i feel like i’m allowed to take my time. In contrast, my last semester at Bard was a craze race against time and my own sanity.
and i know my next one will be even tougher. so i let myself go here. and i do not tell my Seika teachers how way too kind they are.
Nevertheless, i am learning all the time. my new environment has a whole study body of its own. i’m learning to take care of my needs, find my ways, be patient and listen even if i do not understand. i do learn Japanese that way, hopefully.
Last but not least, I learn that there is so much more to communication other than spoken language. Which is a great thing to keep in mind while going at it in an art school.
As a start, check out this romantic pair of lizards who can be seen all over the window next to my room, every day and night.
I have SO much to write about! however, sumimasen, I still think in Hebrew about a lot of the things I’m going through here in Japan, so giving them shape and form in English takes a bit from the excitement. that’s why this time I DO have some photos to share and decorate my poor descriptions with. hajimemashou!
This morning I went with two other exchange students(lovely ladies) from our dorm, Kino Ryo Minami, to the University. last night was really rainy so the air was heavy with an addicting after-the-rain scent, one of my most favorite things to start my morning with!
