INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Since I started my internship here at INTERNeX Canada couple weeks back, I began to think how different life is when working full time and not going to school. I’ve always been a student. Sure I’ve worked a few part time jobs here and there, but never actually taken the step to stop attending classes for a whole semester to work. Many of you might be already used to this kind of feeling…how shall I put it, a sense of independence? And I don’t mean the kind of independence you get in college where teachers no longer follow you around if you haven’t done your homework.

But for me, it was definitely strange at first.  I’ve never lived alone in a different country and I still live with my parents. So being here at INTERNeX and meeting people around my age (even younger) who have all traveled here to work alone, made me think how inexperienced I still am. I have so much more to learn, as a person, and to see in life.

I don’t believe I’m the only one who has felt this way before -a bit scared, a little overwhelmed, but completely excited to experience new things…sort of like when a kid is left at a candy store all alone. Okay I admit that was a pretty bad analogy.

So I’ll just end this with the words of John Maxwell (that pretty much sums up how I feel), “If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone“. 

Hope you guys have a great weekend 🙂

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Today I want to share something special with everybody. Namely my favorite Artist Ria Engelen, she is a new and upcoming artist, so like her on Facebook. She has painted many paintings and sculpted many sculptures, however below you will find my favorite painting from her work so far.

The painting is called “The Seasons of Life”.

In this painting you can see an apple tree going through all the seasons. Starting at spring with beautiful apple blossom, getting apples in the summer and then losing all leafs in the fall and then starting over again after the winter has blown over.

Secondly, you can see the seasons of a woman’s life. Starting as a child, growing to be a woman in her prime and ending life as an older lady who has all the experience and memories to prove it.

You can also see the rising sun by day and the moon by night, which also can mean the rising dawn and the fall of dust, the beginning and the end.

However, everybody sees something different and for everybody art has different definitions. Do you want to share yours?

Just mail it in and win prizes!! 

Have a nice weekend.

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Being Canadian, I find this video pretty hilarious! Whether you have just arrived in Canada, or you have been here for awhile, I am pretty sure you will find it entertaining too.  This video sheds light on Canadian stereotypes catching everything from the way we speak, our extreme and sometimes unnecessary politeness and of course our obsession with hockey.  You can watch it below, and it is definitely good for a laugh, I hope you enjoy it!

Have you encountered any of these stereotypes during you time here in Canada?  Or maybe you know of a similar video from your own country? Let us know, we always love to hear your input and you have the potential to win prizes !!

Have an awesome weekend!

Cheers,

Kristina

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Just a few weeks left and then we are going to the ROCKIES!! I hope that we are going to see some bears there because they are just amazing animals. To send you all of for a nice weekend I have for you all some amazing bear jokes!!! Enjoy and share..

***********************************************************************************

Two guys are out in the woods hiking.

All of a sudden, a bear starts chasing them. They climb a tree, but the bear starts climbing up the tree after them.

The first guy gets his sneakers out of his knapsack and starts putting them on.

The second guy says, “What are you doing?”

The first guy says, “I figure when the bear gets too close, we’ll have to jump down and make a run for it.”

The second guy says, “Are you crazy? You can’t outrun a bear”!

The first guy says, “I don’t have to outrun the bear. I only have to outrun you.”

***********************************************************************************

An 80 year old man was having his annual checkup,

and the doctor asked him how he was feeling.

“I’ve never been better!” he boasted.

“I’ve got an eighteen year old bride who’s pregnant, and having my child! What do you think about that?”

The doctor considered this for a moment, then said,

“Let me tell you a story. I knew a guy who was an avid hunter. He never missed a season. But one day went out in a bit of a hurry, and he accidentally grabbed his umbrella instead of his gun.”

The doctor continued, “So he was in the woods, and suddenly a grizzly bear appeared in front of him! He raised up his umbrella, pointed it at the bear, and squeezed the handle.”

“And do you know what happened?”the doctor queried.

Dumbfounded, the old man replied “No.”

The doctor continued, “The bear dropped dead in front of him!”

“That’s impossible!” exclaimed the old man. “Someone else must have shot that bear.”

“That’s kind of what I’m getting at…” replied the doctor.

***********************************************************************************

One day a bear was chasing a rabbit through the forest when they tripped over a genies lamp.

The genie comes out and says “hold it, hold it, hold it. If you two will just quit chasing each other for three minutes I’ll give you both three wishes”.

So they say okay that sounds fair.

The genie says “okay who’ll go first?”

The bear pushes the rabbit out of the way and says “I’ll go first”

So the genie says “okay”.

The bear goes “I wish all the bears in the forest except for me were girls”.

The genie snapped his fingers and says done.

The rabbit says, “I wish I had a crash helmet”.

The bear goes well that’s a dumb wish.

But the rabbit says, “that’s my wish”.

The genie snapped his fingers and says done.

The bear says “I wish every bear in the world except me were girls”.

The genie goes that’s a big wish “it’ll count as two wishes”.

The bear goes “o-okay I’ll do it”.

The rabbit has two wishes left so the rabbit says, “I wish for a motor scooter”.

Then he gets on the scooter puts on his crash helmet and as he’s driving away

He yells, “I wish the bear was gay”.

Have a nice weekend.
