Goodbye Everyone, Auf Wiedersehen!

To be honest: today is not the day to write this blog post. Sometimes you have to say “goodbye”. But today?! I’m not ready to do it at all.

The last 7 weeks have flown by faster than I ever expected. And now, today is my very last day here in Vancouver. First I want to say thank you to Mina and Tim. They gave me the chance to do this amazing internship at INTERNeX. I’ve been treated like a normal employee, allowed to take initiative and to be responsible for several tasks. I’m very proud to be a part of the INTERNeX family! Thanks to Annika and Simon as well. All of you were really supportive and all of you made my stay more comfortable and especially more funny!

But I have to say thank you to many other people as well. Because I was a part of the PR-Team at INTERNeX, I met so many great people during our events. I’m very lucky that I met guys like you. I get friedns from all over the world. Canada, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Columbia, Italy, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Germany and so on…Thanks to all of you. YOU’RE AMAZING!

I really enjoyed my stay in Vancouver. I will miss Canada. I will miss Vancouver. And I will miss ALL OF YOU!

Stay in touch with me!

See you soon and take care,
Tobias

INTERNeX Halloween Party 2013 – Review Part 2

—WHO WON THE PRIZES?—WHO HAD THE BEST COSTUME @ OUR BIG HALLOWEEN PARTY?—

Now I will continue the review of our big Halloween party @ The Blarney Stone. Within Part 2 of the review I will answer the following questions:

Who won the costume contest?
Which team won the scavenger hunt?
Are there any crazy pictures from the Halloween Party?

First I want to announce the winner of our costume contest:

The winner of our great costume contest is:
…drum roll…..

…MARTIN! Congratulations! Look at his amazing costume on the right!

Now I want to say something about the scavenger hunt. We divided people into three teams. They had to organize pictures or videos of the followings tasks as fast as possible:

– A team member hugging a stranger
– Entire team has to do the situation “I   can’t believe we all fit in here!”
– Entire team has to jump
– Getting four strangers to spell out “YMCA” with their bodies
– A teammate has to ask a stranger if she/he wants to marry her/him

But now I want to announce the winner:
The fastest team and for that the winner of our scavenger hunt is:
Team 3 with MARTIN, JULIA, RHYS and AXEL! Each of you won a prize!
Have a look at these crazy pictures:


And now the PR-Team wants to announce the winner of our additional prize: the prize for the best picture of the party:

And the winner is: OUR LOVELY FAIRY TOBIAS!

Look at the picture on the left! HAHAHA!

But not only Tobias gets the additional prize. Of course the person who took the picture gets the prize as well: RHYS, our lovely Pope!

And this brings us to the end of our amazing Halloween party @ The Blarney Stone. Thanks to all people who joined this crazy party. It was legendary!

 

Take care,
Tobias

INTERNeX Halloween Party 2013 – Review Part 1

—IT WAS AMAZING!—IT WAS LEGENDARY!—

Last Friday we had our big Halloween party @ The Blarney Stone. First, the PR-Team wants to say thank you to all of the INTERNeX people who joined this amazing party! Everybody had a good time and it was simply great!

Now I will start with the review (Part 1) of the “INTERNeX drops dead – So get your freak on” – party!

We met us around 7 pm @ The Blarney Stone. The INTERNeX people arrived one after another – I don’t know how to say it, but I was kind of overwhelmed when I saw them in their crazy costumes! All people went in with a smile on their face, because for many of them it was their first real Halloween party abroad – for me as well!

Furthermore, we organized some games for the INTERNeX people. For example we did a scavenger hunt, we had a little drinking game and of course we had our costume contest! After our games we had a great time. We danced, we had tons of fun and we enjoyed the whole night! 

But there is one question left: who won the prizes? What prizes? Are you curious? You want to see all the crazy pictures from the costume contest? And from the scavanger hunt? Well, then read the INTERNeX Halloween Party 2013 – Review Part 2 coming very soon!

Have a wonderful week,
Tobias

Casual Friday

A couple of days ago I strolled through Gastown as an old man asked me a funny question:
Ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn’t zigzag?
I know the question sounds very weird. But because of that I searched for further weird but kind of funny questions without any answers.

 

Here you go!

 

1.- Can you cry under water? 

 

2.- Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

 

3.- Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

 

4.- How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

 
5.- Why is it that people say they ‘slept like a baby’ when babies wake up like every two hours?

 
6.- Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV?

 

7.- Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

 

8.- Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They’re going to see you naked anyway.

 

9.- Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat? 

 

10.- If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat?

 
11.- Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They’re both dogs!

 

12.- If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

 

13.- Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

 

14.- Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

 

15.- Why do they call it an asteroid when it’s outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it’s in your butt?


16.- Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he
sticks his head out the window?

 

If you have an answer to any of the questions, don’t be shy and write a comment!

 

See you soon,
Tobias

How was your weekend?

Scary, scary, scary! Last weekend we visited “The Dunbar Haunted House”. Here you can read a brief summary of the event. And of course you can see a few impressive pictures. Just a reminder – it took nearly four months to set up the haunt!

 

If you want to read what the  Dunbar House is about, please click here.

Please be patient, if you want to visit it the next few days. The line-up took nearly two hours! But fortunately there were some zombies making the waiting time more excited!

Unfortunately it was prohibited to take pictures inside the house. But anyways – you have to experience how the zombies send a chill down your spine!

All things considered, it was a great activity. Because of the scary volunteers and the detailed haunt we can say that it is definitely worth it to visit “The Dunbar Haunted House”!

 

AND HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND? Just leave a comment below! 🙂

Take care,
Tobias

Fun Facts

Have you ever been to Grouse Mountain? Did you do the Grouse Grind? No? Then continue reading!
If yes, then you know what I will talk about!
This weekend I did the Grouse Grind.

What is the Grouse Grind?
The Grouse Grind is a 2.9-kilometre trail up the face of Grouse Mountain, commonly referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster.”
But this trail is very challenging. REALLY. I underestimated it. I want to describe my thoughts and feelings during the hike like this:

 

IMAG0724
1/4: “A…(take a breath)…Are…(take a breath)…ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!”

 

IMAG0725
1/2: “WHY!? WHY?! I will die! Should I better turn around and go back?
ARRGH.”

 

 

3/4: (I can’t remember anything  of the hike between sign “1/2” and
the top of the mountain)

 

 

 

IMAG0727_1
4/4, on top:  “OH MY GOD. It was definitely worth it!
  (irony on) / And of course it wasn’t too hard. Actually it was pretty easy! But next time I will take the gondola – because of the nice view, of
course.”   / (irony off)

 

Can you beat my time? Then write a comment! 1 hour and 27 minutes. Yes i know, it’s not that fast 😉

 

See you soon,
Tobias
