Hi! My name is Miranda and I'm the shortest of the Shorties.
It's hard to believe, but two months of the season have passed by and we are now in November. It has been a great season so far, regardless if we are cooking, hiking or mangling. However,this means that more than two thirds of the season are over, it is time for some reflections.
My life here at KISC is pretty different to the one I have back in Sweden. My theory is that everyone who comes here becomes KISCified in different ways. Since it is highly unlikely that you know anyone here before your first timeyou and since we all are from different countries and even continents, KISC is a perfect place for you to really live out your dream and to let another side of you show more than at home where we all know our place at work or in school. For me, KISC means taking chances. I am only here for three months and when I return to Sweden, I want to have as many fun stories and happy memories of this place as possible. Yes, this sometimes means that we may stay up a bit too long and sometimes taking jokes longer than we would normally do (like the scarf hunt I wrote about earlier in the Think Pink blog).
Also, KISC is very different from your home, unless you happen to work at another place like KISC. Since a lot of our Staff is from other parts of the world than Europe, and since Switzerland is kind of in the middle of Europe, when you live here, it is very easy to hop on a night train and wake up somewhere completely different, live the city dream for two days and then come back to the centre. This helps you from not being completely obsessed with the colour pink and also gives you more perspective of life outside the Centre.
