Majoring in 'Patience'

Life certainly seems to enjoy playing with us, don't you think? I was always very bad at being patient for example, and life sure has been trying to teach me that great strength these past years. I guess I havent' mastered it yet (even if I firmly believe I have much improved) because I keep getting these obstacles right in my face which test my patience on a daily basis.

Some years ago, I was dying to leave the States and come back to Europe. Well that took me 24 months and as I was only at 'patience 101' that wait was hell for me.

Some months ago, I started a serious relationship with someone I had fallen for. As he happened to live thousands of kilometers away and still does, our 18 month relationship was and is still spent earning bi-monthly Star Alliance and One World miles. Level 200 of the Patience major successfully passed.

And now of course, as we decided to live together, thus moving and looking for jobs in Switzerland, I seem to have unwillingly registered to the advanced level of Patience. The hardest one by far.

THE situation

This is basically the situation: after confirmation of my transfer to Zurich a week ago, they are now playing games and lowering the conditions.

I keep telling myself that I need to be strong and patient and by all means not bulge, but man it's f***ing hard! The desire to simply send them to hell is growing by the minute.

Fed up with the mind games

Don't think I'll be able to cope with these mind games much longer. The latest: 'Oh but I was not aware of this. There seems to be a communication problem (no shit!) We are going to have to find a compromise because I cannot give what you're asking for. Think about it.'

Oh but it's all thought about!

New horizons

Life will never cease to amaze me! After two years in Madrid, it seems that events will soon be taking me to Zurich... I'm excited, I'm curious, I'm scared! This move means so much: it implicates a lot of BIG changes, personal as well as professional. I know, I asked and fought for this but now that it's 99% confirmed panick is what I'm starting to feel.

My impressions so far: Zurich has a lot to offer, my new job will be tough but exciting, and most of all we will finally move in together. My fear: even if it is the biggest city in Switzerland, it sure seems small, especially after Miami and Madrid!
