  1. Topics merged by admin   Hey everyone, I am curious why some people have a preference for particular vaccines. Do you have a preference? If so it is based on the technology, company, doctor's advice, or some data?
  2. What are you cooking today?

    Feeling lazy today. Its gonna be spaghetti and tomato sauce. Very basic
  3. Legalities of unpaid praktikum

    I had university required internship that was not paid. Its a good way to get your feet in the door. Aim to get a full time or working student position after like 3 months
  4. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

    Y'all look fine with the long hair.
  5. McFit and SCHUFA

    I think they have to send you warnings before they it gets entered into your SCHUFA. Good thing you documented everything. I really feel like I would have kept my gym membership if they had just reached out when the pandemic started and not try to tie us with contracts. If you are not sure, just order a free copy of your schufa if you have not done already this year. Im pretty sure its too early to talk to a lawyer. I'd wait it out.
  6. Berlin Corona Vaccinations

    thanks for the clarification. appreciated
  7. Hey Idioma. I'm not an expert but a colleague of mine was in the same pickle last year. He established a GmBH but it was kind of an overkill he says - with all the bureaucracy that comes with it. I think self-employed(Gewerbe) would probably cut it when you are starting out and you can always convert to an entity.  This article on starting a business might help. Or you can start with UG if you need limited liability.  Dissolving a company when you want to move out of Germany I hear can also be quite a hustle.
  8. Berlin Corona Vaccinations

    hey everyone.. I am probably living under a rock but what's this code? you receive a letter when you are eligible to be vaccinated?
  9. depends on which one I am getting but the alternative (not to get vaccinated) is not that so promising either
  10. Ah well, I guess it was good while it lasted. They won!
  11. How to pay a BVG fine from abroad

    I am not sure if the IBAN numbers change, but I would still check the BVG website for the latest or pay online. You can use sofort überweisung (instant transfer)

  14. Low Schufa due to no reason

    @ashkan are there any entries on the report you receive that you do not recognise? like banks asking for your credit score etc? If so you can write to the schufa about them.
