Re: From Finland to Switzerland (maybe?)

Thanks for tips! However all the things, related to language, have gone just exactly on the limits which I can manage. Nothing more, nothing less.

Re: From Finland to Switzerland (maybe?)

It is kind of interesting when I had everything money can buy, and yet wanting those things which hardly relates to money.. More and more I know I have to escape so deep into the wilderness, so that I cannot be tracked anymore, and then find the cruel force of nature

Re: From Finland to Switzerland (maybe?)

I would really like to suggest babbel to everyone who has problems with language. My workmates were already impressed about the progress and I have had lot more confidence to manage normal situations than ever.

Of course the downside is that you will not meet anyone like in normal language courses, but still the positive side is remarkable. I just made remark on my workmate who has been doing migros klubschule and he said he cannot say anything after 6 months, while after 4 months of "when you have time" intensive babbel courses I have been managing to get my stuff out of the lost and found, had a German discussions in webchats and making a German person almost to cry of joy

Re: From Finland to Switzerland (maybe?)

I am the OP, had to change my nickname to better suit for the legacy of my visit at Switzerland. I am writing this to have a closure of the worst times of my life and hopefully someone else would learn something about these experiences.

Tips for selecting a job;

- Study about the background of the project you apply into
- If there are germans related to that project, escape early
- Never express things you don't want to do, because those are then the things you are forced to do
- Torture is part of the job, learn early to torture others -> leads to promotion

Basic rules for living;

- Don't move to Switzerland alone, your better half will help you to remind when the limit is reached
- You are monitored all the time, not only at streets or bars
- Masturbation is illegal
- Love is a weakness used against you
- Nothing will work for you during the first years, but that is just a test of your personality and reactions
- Never make a contract which locks you up for more than one month, otherwise you will pay huge toll when you get expelled
- Swiss love psychological games to make you mentally ill and make you pay for pharmacy industry. If you don't accept this, you will pay even more
- Anything which you pay for has zero value

What I had before coming to Switzerland;

- Long term girlfriend
- Home with entrance to sauna and swimming pool
- Nice powerful car
- Quite nice career

What I lost after the 5 years in Switzerland;

- Lost ability to have a home
- Lost 5 years of salaries in Switzerland
- Lost 20k€ of my family money saved for me
- Lost girlfriend
- Lost career
- Lost willing to live

What I got from Switzerland;

- Realization how bad abuse can be, when you are monitored 24/7
- First hand knowledge of national socialism
- Opportunity to every day chose between suicide or struggle

So overall Switzerland fulfilled all the expectations of the marketing material.

It is kind of a miracle that I am still alive after the banishment process, it was somewhat funny(actually the first time someone had a sense of humor), but expensive. I am kind of impressed that the effort of getting rid of me was so well organized, when it would have been enough to just decline the B-permit on the second round.
