I need help from my UK fellow Threadless mates! (and also from all of the other lovely EU peeps that may be close to the UK)
This was originally in the Alumni blog, but that made no sense. So... I'll just reblog it here.
"So... my lovely pretty little thing, which is my girlfriend-fiancee-wife-family-friend-and all things nice, is moving to Coventry next year to study. I don't want to be away from her... In fact, never again in my whole life.
I recently graduated in uni. I'm a freaking Graphic Designer. Yes, after 5 years, i a have a bachelor's degree (or what you guys may call it. i dunno). I am aware that the economy is not going that well in several EU countries, not much in the UK (but there's still the whole recession thing, and even though there's this sort of fairy tale aura over EU, i know unemployment is a reality everywhere around the globe, and yadda yadda yadda.) And in the UK there's no more possibility of obtaining a working visa if you're not in the EU (i believe this info to be accurate, i'm not 100% on this) but... this is it.
I want to know if you guys know any good art courses, things that are not graduate related (as you see i already have a degree and applying for complementary studies is not possible anymore)... that take like a year, or maybe less to complete. I was looking for something that was Illustration/Design. I'm sending emails everywhere, pleading, telling my sad story, and waiting to see if some blessed soul can help me out on this.
As i said, i'm not limited to the UK. Even though it would be perfect to be able to live in Coventry and be in a walking distance of her. I'd swim, walk, frolic... fuck me jesus, i'd fly to be with her. And i'm not talking "plane" fly, i'd grow freaking feathers and get there.
I thought of going somewhere under the pretext of "learning english" but i feel fine with my capabilities in this particular area. If i don't find something better... i will take that path. I'll go somewhere i can pay, pretend, work a lot and be with her.
Well. This is it. Love you guys a lot, may all of you lovely humans have a neat holiday and let's hope santa doesn't fill your socks with coal and ebola virus.
with all my heart,
yours truly (brazilian favourite),
