Hello! :)

Hi all!

I'm new to the forum, so I think I should leave a little introduction!

I was born in Portugal, but have been hopping country since 2004 (studied in Finnland, worked a couple of years in Germany).

I'm a (nerd) architect who would like to (stop playing computer games) meet some nice people that might also live in Zürich. I've been having some problems connecting with Swiss, because they tend to be very reserved and people in my work field have a little bit too many bad stereotypes towards my nationality.

Since most of my friends who have previously lived/ live in other regions always tell me it is much easier to connect with foreigners, I decided to give it a try and check out for some friendly Zürich (or other places hihi ^-^) people around here (^-^)

Re: Hello! :)

Hi and welcome.

Nerds are always welcome, unless you're one of the hipsters who just say they are a nerd.

Never stop playing video games, I sure never will

Lots of outgoing friendly people here at EF, I'm sure you'll meet a ton.

Enjoy

Re: Hello! :)

*looks into her FF figurines*

*checks her Rurouni Kenshin collection*

*counts her Warcraft III CDs*

*checks her "404" t-shirt*

*hides her very embarassing collection of X-Men collection under Dostoievsky*

I'd say I am on the good path to be a good old nerd xD Thank you for the welcomes

Re: Hello! :)

Ouchboy, if you are feeling woozy, squat down and put your head between your knees. My uncle had me do that when I got kicked by a horse and it totally kept me from passing out.

I didn't just Google Images that name with 'SafeSearch Off' so I have no idea who you are talking about.

Re: Hello! :)

LOOOOL I asure you I am not Jo Garcia!

But I guess women do tend to concentrate on certain type of games... I myself get bored with shooters, but no one can get me away from my hack n' slash ^^ And all my fellow female gamers have learnt a long time ago it's not a good idea to reveal their gender: first, it collides with our secret plans to dominate the World Wide Web, secondly no male ego invites a female to a party in case she does a better job that the men... *sigh*

Re: Hello! :)

It's not so much not liking FPS I was a huge fan of Wolfenstein (I still have the first one somewhere xD) and played many hours of Counterstrike... But since I kinda suffer with motion sickness, certain games are a big no-no (like €), because they basically kick me into camper style, and I hate being a camper


Hi ezzirahc I stopped playing FFXI recently and hopped into FFXIV, but since the game is still not mature enough, doing a pause and been reviving my good old Warcraft III. What about you? ^^ *hi5*
