Final Semester VII

The last semester is over! The last few weeks passed pretty fast, as I had exams in Epidemiology, Food Microbiology and two presentations, one of those in front of the Head Sustainability of ABB. I guess I did well, particularly the exams. Actually, can't wait for the marks. After the last exam on Thursday, I went to an event by Bain & Company, where they talked about merger & aquisitions, a topic I'm not really familiar with. Thus, it was a great opportunity to get a first insight. After the presentation we were invited for lunch and had time for networking that I used extensively. Then I went to the gym for a nice workout and returned to ETH to make pizza and christmas cookies. We had so much fun there, however it was also kind of a farewell event, as some of them I won't see again for quite a long time. As Kai was going to California, I took a train back to Schaffhausen and met him at Oberhof. We talked a bit and decided to go to the Orient next door. The party was great, and made up for not going to Indochine, so it was pretty late when I returned home.

A week before I was invited at two birthday apero in Zurich. The first one started at 6PM and was at Lara's place, where we got Pizza and different kinds of salad. But actually I was just there to say Hello, because I had another invitation for an apero in a lounge at Hotel Plattenhof. I went together with Tobias and again, nice people and nice location. However, as I had to prepare for the exams I went back home, whereas the rest headed for a party at Alte Börse.

Then I participated at Absolventenkongress located at Messe Zurich. It's one of the biggest job congresses in Switzerland and all notable companies were present. I had interesting talks with Nestle, Unilever, Kraft Foods but also with Roland Berger, Booz & Company and Bain & Company. All in all, a great day!

Right now we have approximately 15cm of snow outside! The weekend was bloody cold, and on Saturday it started snowing. On Sunday I went to Zurich by car together with Thomas. We went to Globus Delicatessa and to Sprüngli for some chocolate, and then drove back. However, we were driving 50km/h on the highway because we were in the middle of a snowstorm. At least I felt something like christmas mood coming up!

I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!!
