Pub Night Review

Yesterday we had another great pub night at the Bismarck. The Bismarck is a cozy pub in Tinseltown, in the same mall as our office.

We met at 7pm in the pub and ordered our first round of drinks. It was nice to see how everyone started chatting with each other even when there are new people. We discussed our weekend plans and it seems like a lot of you guys are coming out to the kits beach on Saturday! It is going to be a beautiful sunny day, so it is more than worth it to come to the beach. We will also bring our volleyball and if you have any other beach sport/activities you are more than welcome to bring them along. We might want to make a stop at 4th avenue during our beach day to get some ice-cream, who doesn’t love ice cream?

We hope you all will enjoy the rest of the week and see you on Saturday!

INTERNeX Canada: Highlights of the Week

Even though it’s almost the end of January, this is the week when I’ve finally felt like my life is back on track and not in holiday mood.

We welcomed Flora, our new PR intern who is Canadian and loves Vancouver like most of you have grown to. Get to know her more by reading her introduction. I know you’ll love her as much as I do already!

Who are the Canadians? Sometimes it is difficult to tell because Vancouver is so international! You might meet a person from, let say China, who has lived here since they were a baby or you might meet one who has just come to do an internship for a few months. Either way, Vancouver is a great place for people of all nations!

Speaking of internships, if you are thinking of doing one, don’t think! It’ll be one of your best experiences and it will not only help further your career and education, but it’ll change your life in ways you can’t imagine.

The Canucks are back so we decided that for our Pub Night it would be great to watch one of their practices beforehand. Then, we headed off to The Cambie for some much needed drinks, nachos and catch up!

Everything happens for a reason, right? It is hard to let go of bad moments or mistakes that you’ve made in the past, but these experiences are what’s going to make you stronger. So let it go and just enjoy the present by doing something that makes you happy!

Cheers,

Queenie

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday!

After so many goodbyes, it’s time for me to start thinking on what to do next… My internship will finish at the end of this month and if I make a balance of all this time… Oh god… Probably these seven months have been the most important months of my whole life, a big challenge to cross the world and start doing something practical and completely different that I used to do at home!

But this is life! If you don’t have goals, challenges, dreams… What kind of life are you living? We are young, ok maybe I’m not that young anymore, but still we are all at the age of our main obligation must be to experiment, travel, falling in love with probably the wrong person, party like there is no tomorrow, meet people from all over the world, laugh loud, learn professional skills, learn about the world, learn about the kind of person that you are and of course learn about the people you want to become someday!

I don’t know you, but all that kind of feelings that’s what I call life! And all that kind of feeling just happen to me here, so… apart of living in one of the best places all over the world, Vancouver will be always special for me, and I’m sure I’m not the only one that thinks in that way.

You’ll have time to settle down…right now the only thing that I want, the only thing that probably all of us should do is just LIVE!

Enjoy your day,

Cheers,

Irene

INTERNeX Canada: Review of 2012 – April, May, June!

In the last review post, we talked about what went on the first three months of the year, let’s continue with April to June!

April 2012

We kick started off April with a huge party at the Staffhouse for no reason then, why not? People danced until the sun came out and I think it’s because of the awesome fog machine and strobe light!

We welcome our new PR intern, Kristina, who was born and raised right here in Vancouver, British Columbia. She loves to travel and has studied abroad in Melbourne, Australia!  She celebrated Easter weekend with running, watching hockey and spending time with her family.

Our trip to the Rockies was just unbelievable. All the places we visited, Lake Louise, Johnston Canyon, going up the Banff Gondola and even sunbathing on the Columbia Icefields, were simply magical. All the parties, the amazing people we met, and our Backstreet Boys Flash Mob made the trip even that much better! To relive the whole experience, we had a huge Rockies After Party @ The Blarney Stone where over 100 people came!

Going with the trend of special pub nights, we hosted an INTERNeX Trivia Quiz Pub night! I mean, who doesn’t love a little bit of trivia and winning prizes?

After 8 months abroad in Canada, Hannes, one of the PR interns, has to return home to his university studies. But, saying goodbye to one German means welcoming two more, Xenia and Maria, to the PR team!

We finished off April with the INTERNeX Amazing Race where we had 9 teams race all around the city completing 9 tasks. It was a crazy and intense race that took over 2 hours!

May 2012

We started off the month with another big party! It was time for our monthly Pub and Club Night where we went for pre-drinks at the good ole Cambie and then headed off to Post Modern Dance Bar to get some dancing on!

With the fantastic weather going on, we decided to go racing at go-karting! It was fun to drive with limited rules and see who’s the fastest! We further tested our driving skills with a Zipcar on the streets of Vancouver! It’s such a fuel efficient car and renting a car can be a great way to see places in Vancouver that is inaccessible by public transit.

We welcome our new intern, Katie, who is from Iowa, a state in the United States. She is about to graduate from Iowa State and is interested in learning more about public relations and the city of Vancouver!

Being in Canada, of course we have to try our hands at camping! We went to Vargas Island which is near Tofino and did some hardcore hiking, campfire making and sleeping in tents. Pretty adventurous, I would say!

Sadly, it was time to say goodbye to Maria and Kristina. While they were both here for such a short time, their personality made INTERNeX that much more fun!

INTERNeX at NAFSA’s 2012 Conference (National Association of Foreign Student Advisers)! Our president, Tim, represented INTERNeX at this annual conference that strives to better student’s real world and international experience. INTERNeX was part of the 8,000 people from over 120 countries that attended the workshops and networking events in Houston, Texas!

June 2012

It’s June which means its summer and this means going to the Richmond Night Market! Opened annually only in the summer, you can buy cute accessories and delicious street food from hundreds of vendors.

This month, we also said goodbye to Rick and Janus, our IT interns at INTERNeX, by having a pub night at Cinema Public House. Watch their expose to learn about their experience doing an internship here and how they feel about moving to Canada from the Netherlands!

We successfully tackled the legendary Grouse Grind. As we learnt, it was a good workout and not lying to you, but we saw wolves and grizzly bears along the way.

The last weekend in June was spent in Whistler with two days filled with hiking, lakes, suspension bridge, bike rides, ziplining and the ultimate bungee jumping! It was simply beautiful, check out the photo of the week!

Stay tuned for our next review about July to September! 

Cheers,

Queenie

Sometimes is really hard for them to assume the reality. They don’t like to be criticized and they hate to hear pedantic people or people who consider themselves superior.

So do you agree with this? Are you like your zodiac sign say?

In my case, I agree 100% of that. Even if I prefer not to, I can’t avoid of thinking and caring about the other (sometimes is stressful, eh), and I dream a lot for sure. I hate selfish people or pedantic! I really do Argg! It’s so often that the people pretend to be someone they are not, who is rich you can notice, who is intelligent, is intelligent enough to know that it’s not necessary to show what is obvious.

We want to hear your opinion!

Cheers,

Irene
