I had a telephone interview with a company in Switzerland yesterday evening. It went quite well and they have invited me to a personal meeting in Zurich.
Shit's getting real, yay!

im struggling with fetishism here, and i feel like an idiot with this proclamation, but a decent coffee grinder really makes a nice cup, and now i hope i don’t turn into an obnoxious hipster. i’m already obnoxious as it is and hipsterism would be my perdition.

but for fucks sakes, this coffee!! yes.

Just relax and enjoy your coffee. You may have your worries about whether or not you're slipping into hipsterism afterwards. But first: Indulgence! The pleasure of good coffee is not to be underestimated. Cheers!

plus if you get tired of it you come back with higher ratings due to experience.

gotta do these things while still having the energy to do them

there’s time to sit comfortably in place... much later in life

the salary they have offered to me is insane. but also, the cost of living in Zurich is pretty fucked up
however, the relocation package is only limited to covering of some transport costs. but they would help me find a place to live etc.

the only problem is our little girl (4 years old) - the kindergartens in Switzerland cost like 2000 CHF a month which is more than my head is able to process.
I need to think this through properly.

lol i just read about the cost of childcare in switzerland. damn! 2/3 of an average salary they say. must be great or something? no idea. wow. https://www.expatica.com/ch/living/f...erland-106588/

anyway i'd suggest gathering all of your concerns and bringing them up to the company, maybe? that way they could either offer alternatives or even *cough cough* improve their offer somehow? hmmm

when we moved to x-land, back in the paleozoic (i was, oh... 6?), they even hooked us up with the schools i believe. the locals have all the connections of course.
