If you ever find out how to open a new thread, will you let me know? I also couldn't find it last week, despite searching, searching, searching...
1. Click Forum on the top menu bar
2. Click on the section where you want to post (this is Daily Life, for example)
3. Click on the button New Thread that is above the list of threads in that section.

Bob's yer uncle. Or whatever it is Brits say.

Re: I smiled because...

I just discovered that there is a "go to first new post" button in front of each thread in the control pannel.

That's neat.

Guess everyone will say now "duh, that's always been there".

Re: I smiled because...

I saw my profs. They haven't changed. Something about brainiacs not aging...eery.

And weird saunas made me smile - ice cold mist booths.

Because my fancy and awesome hipster dishes I made for my folks serve for piles of their geological samples and not for eating.

Re: I smiled because...

Because I realize I spend more time in my skiing/running/training clothes than suits or looking...classy.

Gotta dust off my sewing machine.

Re: I smiled because...

Because I was told my thesis was too good they want only 20% of it that they feel like processing for my degree.

FML.

Re: I smiled because...

After 2 weeks of sun it started raining today, weather is back to as it should be. Don’t get me wrong, I do love sunshine, but 10 days of t shirt weather in February is not right.

Think I've now mastered the art of looking completely passable / "classy" in the running / training clothes I prefer (it's possible nowadays), which helps as I always go for 1.5 hours speed walk up in the Zurich forest trails before beginning my day.

Happy that I work from home mostly (at this lucky moment), so that I don't need to change for work. But it is still a nice feeling to get back into my reduced office wardrobe when needed ;-)

Why don't you join me I can adjust between strolling on the flat trails I've found which have amazing panoramic views over Zurich, or speed walking. Only about an hour and a half at its slowest. It's reachable on all the Zurich tram lines, so no excuse.

Jogging unfortunately out-of-scope (just PM me!)

Re: I smiled because...

Yesterday me and my fiancé picked up his mum and partner to go for a meal. We was talking in the car on the way to the restaurant when Alan ( my fiancé’s mums partner ) started complaining that he had to dress up nice, not like Michael couldn’t stop laughing Micheal had Armani clothes on
