markantony posted Pet and house sitter looking for assignment in September on the Switzerland forum on July 20, 2014:
I am a philosophy student at Columbia University who is very interested in looking after your home and pets in September (dates flexible). I speak English, Russian, and a bit of French and seek somewhere quiet and relaxing to work on my poetry before enrolling at Oxford in October. I grew up with cats and dogs, so I am very comfortable around them. I also have experience gardening and maintaining my family’s country home. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you think we can work something out. Again, my dates within the month of September (I could even arrive at the very end of August and leave in the early days of October) are flexible. Thanks, Mark

Hi! I'm contemplating a move to Lugano from Finland in August-September this year or if all else fails the very latest in December. I'm actually looking for a school where I could study at first while I brush up my almost non-existant italian skills. I'm having quite hard time organizing everything and trying to work out all the details of moving abroad. I'm sure you know very well what I'm talking about. My fiancé lives in Lugano and I would be moving there to live with him. I have two kids from a previous relationship, so that complicates things a little. We'll have a house in the beginning of June and I'll be arriving to Lugano in mid-June to stay and organize things. My kids will arrive 2 weeks later with my mother to stay for a while. Nothing except the house is sure yet. I'd be very interested in getting to know other expats as well as locals of course. I know no-one except my fiancé and he too has moved there 4 years ago and doesn't know that many people. Maybe we could meet up while I'm there in the summer and you could give me your tips as someone whose been there :D

lorenzavassalli posted Help!!!! Work life balance on the Switzerland forum:
Good afternoon, I’m Lorenza Vassalli, a master’s student at University of Fribourg. I’m currently writing my master thesis on the topic of the international mobility of single women and especially on the issue of work-life balance. All the existing studies focus on the balance between professional and family life but there are very few studies that consider the fact that, also single women (without children or partner and thus no family issues) could have concerns in balancing work and others important aspects of their life such as interests, hobbies, leisure time,… For this reason, I’m searching some single women expatriates located in the French part of Switzerland that are willing to help me for my thesis with a short and informal interview (the answers will be treated in a confidential and anonymous way). If you are interested, please contact me! I’ll meet you at your company (or where it is convenient for you), probably during May/June, and I’ll not take too much of your precious time (about 30 minutes). Your help is very important to my work and I really hope that you’re willing to provide me some important information for my analysis. If you want to help me, please contact me at: lorenza.vassalli@unifr.ch Thank you very much; I hope to receive many replies from you! Lorenza Vassalli
