What's your city and is it /fa/?
Leeds and pretty /fa/
I grew up there, but now I go to school in the bay area. Bay area def has more stuff to do, but I still have fun when I visit home. I think it has a lot going on when compared to other towns of the same size.
Beaches (morro bay, oceano, pismo beach, grover beach, and a shit ton more all within 20 or so minutes via car), outdoorsy stuff, decent local music scene, etc. Make friends who have interesting hobbies/interests, and you won't be bored.
Moved from Rotterdam to The Hague. Quite a difference. First, the people. Rotterdam can be a bit scruffy at times. Most of the time really. Second, the city didn't get bombed to shite in the 2nd world war. Waking up surrounded by architecture ranging from late-medieval to 20th century moderism is quite pleasant. Also the smorgasbord of cultural things such as boutiques, small bookstores, art, musea, galleries etc. hidden in the nooks and crannies of the narrow streets is a very welcome change of scenery.
I'm the same way. Big cities will always have more stuff to do. I probably won't move back any time soon, but I still look forward to summer + winter break.
They definitely have a good architecture program. My friends and I like to go drink/smoke at this place called architecture graveyard. It is some trail that has a bunch of random architecture/engineering student projects scattered through it. It is right by some poly apartments.
Reykjavík. I would say it's pretty /fa/shionable. Most people are conscious about fashion, some are more conscious than others. It's very modern. But there's no such thing as /fa/ fashion here. I've never heard anyone talk about Raf Simmons or techwear - this is to say about Iceland as a whole. Young people dress like a lot of people in the Nordic countries in general, I think.
Toronto. There are some fashionable people, but high-fashion is relatively inaccessible. People in my neighbourhood usually dress trendy but not necessarily fashionable. They don't look bad. All men under-30 seem to cuff their jeans or trousers and I hate it.
I met Jesus once in London. He offered me his umbrella, ten minutes after it was fucking raining and I thanked that homeless messiah all day long in my head because without that umbrella, I would have been drenched to the bones.
Also London - could be prettier but we did get that sweet tower block brutalism + didn't surrender
>big fashion scene
>big stores and small boutiques
>'fa' shit to do (galleries or gigs or whatever you want)
>I guess the train is quite pricey
I think I wanna just go to school somewhere with a really, really cool art/music scene. I'm into contemporary art and I can pretty much go anywhere with my stats.
Anyone have reccs for cities/schools in the US?
Inside of London a chav is just a bogeyman for anyone that mugs you. #Ladculture is far worse and that shit is worse in Australia, Leeds, ect.
>(outside of London a chav is just a poor person you don't like - get over yourself)
It's just because they're made the Leafs suck. I'm not from Toronto, Montreal here, but I heard the city is just too big and doesn't have a designated downtown area, it's like split up through out the city. Montreal is fucking nice because unless you live in Montreal-Noir or Westfuckistan you can walk almost anywhere.
if you wear a sombrero and get a mustache by the time you travel, you should be good
Mexico is great. Last time I was there I had cocaine with (the late) princess diana's hairdresser. This was at a resort though not guadalajara. I have family in sinaloa though
It's pretty good I think. People are fashionable and there are alot of students, so the city has a "young" feel.
That being said, it's pretty fucking small which is also why I'm considering relocating to Copenhagen.
Top 5 city in Europe culture and architecture wise, imo.
Young people are hipsters/tumblrcore but overall inoffensive.
It's pretty meh. Depends on where you live in, though.
i've yet to see more than a few people that were actually effay in the slightest but I live in an area with very little students...
it's surprising to see someone else from vienna here
the most i actually come in contact with other peoples fashion is at the technical university, which probably isn't really the best place to look for well clothed people
Soho in general has some good clothes shops, but if you want to shop you're really looking at Regent street area, Oxford street and Soho for /fa clothes.
Looking at moving to London, if I was going to be using buses / tube to work etc, how much would I pay per month on average? I know it really varies but an average sum?
I live in a shitty small city near Boston so I'll just say Boston instead. That bring said, it's decently /fa/ but not really at the same time. Havent seen anyone wear anything good besides trendy shit here. I may be wrong though.
Massachusetts only has two /fa/ areas. Cambridge and Boston. You are not /fa/. Also, Boston is a small city so if you're calling anything else in Massachusetts a small city you are super pleb.
Where you at? Dresden or something.
There's much to say about the lack of pre-war architecture but i feel like Rotterdam in this case is moving to a more future forward state. Big modern pieces of architecture etc. Shame is that the post-war necessity for cheap housing means it's surrounded by 60's and 70's social housing projects.
A good mixture of the Medieval or Early Modern buildings of the inner city and the straight up Brutalism of most University buildings. Throw in some 19th century interpretations of Medieval architecture and you're set. The atmosphere is nice and calm by day but at night you'll have to ignore the overkill of drunken student antics. I like that the city is small, I can do everything on foot and most important places are centered within the inner city.
>tfw new to stockholm
>tfw no student life
>tfw no parties
>tfw no gf
was just in reykjavik
first day, -1C, loving it, the rest of the week, 10C.. I didn't go there for the heat!
pretty great city though but nowhere neeear as good "nightlife" as people (icelandic) claim.
moving to holland soon, probably amsterdam.. good idea or is a smaller city better?
keep in mind I'm australian and thus am bored of small cities after spending 20+ years in them.
moving from stratford to bayswater/paddington in a week, don't even feel like I actually live in london all the way out here in shitty arab east london
I live zone 3 (moving), I pay £140 a month to tube to zone 1 for work.. ridiculous, fuck the tube.
Also smaller streets like Marylebone High Street, Kensington High Street, Brompton Road, Kings Road >>> regents street/oxford circus etc.
It costs me £60 a month to just take a train to and from work
Try and cycle and make sure you get a 16-25 card (£90) linked to your oyster - youll save the cost in like 3 months and it lasts 3 years
Vienna is not /fa/ is all I know. Nobody dresses in an exciting, tasteful way. just conservative crap all over, nothing fancy at all, since they all fear getting judged way too much. Boring all over.
Any smaller place in Austria can do better than Vienna.
In fact, any burgerclapistan place does better than a lot of Europe.
go to Soho in effay clothing?
prepare for anal examination
You and me both. But it's actually a really nice place to live.
Phew, idk. For what purpose? Work, leisure, study? I'm not that into Amsterdam. Lot's of tourists, lot's of tourists traps. Expensive housing, mediocre nightlife. I'd get tired of it real quick. I'd say The Hague, which is also rather internationally orientated. Quite a bit of expats over here. But you know, small place. But in all fairness everything in the NL compared to let's say Sidney is like dung-on-a-hill in buttfucknowhere.
well that's a lie
3 zones 1 way is £2.90, which is around 10 stops.. depends where you're going but unless you're going from like zone 6 to 1 it won't cost that.
Just never been to The Hague and me and my gf (dutch) both like Amsterdam, be a bit weird saying 'nah fuck that let's go to the hague!' when I've never been.
Plus as I said, lived in Perth (small city~) so I'm sick of non metropolitan cities for a while.
>tfw I live in a early 60s social housing apartment
It's shit and it's going to get torn down next year, rightly so. But in the meantime I'm glad to have all this space for so little money as a student.
Jesus, I was not expecting to read that word on this board. How do the locals like your clothing? I bet those are the some long walks past The Gate or The Fellmonger if you're wearing anything other than trackies.
I live in Headingley now (which can be /fa/ when it wants to be) but I used to live in Seacroft and Cross Gates when I was a kid. Leeds is a lot more /fa/ than it was when I was younger.
Not hating on it man. A house is a house, especially as a student on a budget you might be mighty pleased with it. But just kinda looking as 'what would your ideal city look like' it's a bit of an eye-sore.
Fuck you, Prague is /fa/ as fuck.
Maybe not the people, but the city itself.
>"c'mon dad hurry up!"
tfw no qt czech waif and effay daughter to take pics of
There's some shit but most of it is all a bit hush hush for the in-crowd. Squatter parties and all that. Still kinderen van den haag and that sorta stuff is pretty fun.
>there are only blacks and turks not giving a fuck how they look
woot. there's almost no blacks here except in the 2nd / 5th district, and even there it's like a minor minority. and the blacks i see are usually pretty /fa/.
you're just being a self hating jew. vienna is somewhat /fa/. especially the posh kids at univie.
also there's like 5 viennese people in here, what up with that
we 4chan now
