INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the Weekend?

Happy November!! How is your week going? This weekend, I will hopefully be going skydiving! (finger crossed that the weather behaves well.)

Though, November is not necessary one of those months that you are too excited about because it’s between holiday seasons. But, here are some important events going on this weekend that will make you change your mind!

DAYLIGHT SAVING ENDS – Change your clocks!

You will absolutely want to, actually NEED TO, attend to this event! On Sunday, at 2am, turn your clocks back one hour (so it becomes 1am).  That’s right change your phone, watch, microwave…whatever! The clocks are going back to Standard time in Vancouver which means that while you are losing an hour of daylight -not that there is much lately – you are gaining one hour of sleep!

  • When? 2am on Sunday or before you head to bed!
  • Why? As days get shorter and shorter in the Autumn and Winter, you want to take advantage of whatever sunshine that is available, so turning the clocks back will allow you to wake up when the sun comes up.

For more information, take a look at this website.

STEVESTON TRIP

Join us on Sunday is exploring Vancouver’s famous fishing village – Steveston! Once home to Canada’s largest fishing fleer of more than 600 vessels, Steveston Village is now an idyllic village where you can eat the best fish and chips and buy fresh seafood directly from the fishermen at the dock for a lower price! If seafood isn’t your thing, there are many cute little gift and antique shops, delicious frozen yogurt and a beautiful garden in the town center. Don’t forget to bring your camera, you will definitely need it!

You know you want to come, so just click attend on our Facebook event!

MOVEMBER

November means Movember in Canada! What does this mean? This time every year, men grow their “Mo’s” to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives! So if you start seeing moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, don’t panic. In fact, I think men with moustaches are quite attractive. To participate, all you men can simply register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face…. And of course, let the moustache grow!

  • When? November 1st to 30th
  • Where? On your faces!
  • Cost? FREE and for a good cause!
