People in Toronto, you can get everything you need from Curry's(three locations, one on younug, one on Queen's and one in Pacific mall) and AboveGround (Just beside Ontario College of Art and Design), these places carry all the supplies including profoilo materials and art/design tools you will need later. And if you are lucky, find an OCAD student, you will svae 10% on everything at both locations and another 5 dollar off on every 25 dollar at Curry's.

I don't work there and i am not doing promotion for they, I personaly prefer Curry's becasue a lot of time it is cheaper by a bit.

Good luck everyone, if anyone need help just let me know!

oh my god i feel sick

so much to do by friday I'm so daft for always leaving stuff till the last minute, I hope not many ppl are going for northumbria and they just take me outta pity I know what u mean about growing to love one city maskedmannequin. I love Newcastle, but I'd been thinking of moving away to uni, instead I'm staying here, right course, and still so much more to find out about Newcastle, it's a gorgeous place (IMO ) and I'm more than happy to stay here (I'll be moving out if I get into uni tho)

good luck with your interview which course you going for?

Yeah I know, I'm very aware of that, that's one of the main reasons for applying there, I need somewhere with a good reputation, 21hours to go....

well they are interviewing 140 people and there are only 30 places i dont even want to think about the percentage. plus i was the first one to be interviewed and i kept screwing my words up i tend to do that when nervous. part from that i would say it went ok.

we will just have to see when the results come in
