Work / What jobs pay 10,000 zlotych per month? and Where can i find one? :o) [101]

One problem i have seen when natives come here, is that they can easily afford partying every night. Whether they are great teachers or not, they get sucked into the trap of thinking that this is a holiday, not a serious job. Kraków being the city it is, i was well suckered into the lifestyle of parties every night of the week, being as social as i could be. But that didnt pay my bills, and when i stopped using money from investments back home, i soon realised what a fecked up mind-set i had.

The work is out there for people who want to do it. The problem most teachers have is they don't treat the profession as a profession. Turn up to classes hung-over and unprepared and you won't be earning a decent salary. Be reliable and consistant and you'll fairly soon find that you're turning down more work than you're accepting.

Very true, when i started teaching, it was a means to an end. I didn't tap the full potential. When i gave up drinking it gave me lots of extra free time and i had a new attitude towards it. Treat it like a profession and you will reap the rewards.

If i have to, heres my 3 cents;

1. Polish cheese - it has to rank as one of the all time tasteless cheeses. No matter what kind you get, it's all the same.

2. Queuing, one person at the front, someone behind him, then someone behind them. It's that easy!
3. PDA, really, put that girl down, grow some bollock's, and stop with the never ending chorus of "i love you, i need you, blablabla"!!!

Oh and i will cheat by adding Bigos to the list, it's like chewing through an incontinent grannies old stale knickers.

Real Estate / House prices in Poland to drop more or rise again? [228]

The Poles are a greedy self-serving bunch bolek, you know that already

That it maybe, but isnt everyone in the west too?
When it comes to making a profit, it's dog eat dog out there. You must do what you can to squeeze something out of what you have invested in. Or are you telling me that Poles are stupid cos they dont want to make a profit?

Depends in what currrency you are dealing with, the polish zlote is loosing value.

Exactly, last year only PLN, this year Only stirling/ Move with the times i say :)

If you purchased a property to live in, you have lost nothing, when investing you must know that its not always money, money, money, just ask our friends in the US money market.

And you must know the best times to invest. PLN is going down, so those with expendable cash should invest in the next couple of months. In this game its about timing. When to, and when not to. I bought this place when i really shouldnt have, i would have had 25% less if i bought now, but then again, i was looking for place to live, not place to rent out or make quick buck :)

Well in the block ive just moved into, well 3 months ago, about 3/4's of the flats are still empty. Not that im complaining about living somewhere that i can play my music loud all day and night. Though it shows how little people are in the buying market.

Well thats about to change, in Krakow sellers are shitting themselves at the mo. Uncertain futures, though with the pound gaining strength against the PLN, maybe they might keep.
