INTERNeX Canada: Annika says “Hello there”

Hello there

 My name is Annika Wäsche and I started work here at INTERNeX right after Labor Day; which is a fitting metaphor , I guess. For the next few months I am going to be part of the PR team and already feel very welcome by my colleagues. After all they immediately noticed, accepted and supported my urgent need for coffee.

For the last year, I participated in the master’s program ‘North American Studies’ in Bonn, which is located in the Rhineland and part of my beloved Germany. So being an intern in one of the supposedly most beautiful cities in North America is exactly spot on for me.

Growing up at the Baltic Sea coast, then going abroad to the U.S. after school for some time, and going back to the middle of Germany to study… I am used to get around a bit and that is why I am looking so much forward to my stay here in Vancouver. Another part of the world to discover, new interesting people to meet and more experiences to last for a lifetime.

One of my hobbies is sports and having been in the U.S. for a while, I have to say that I love American football. I am sure that I will be heading to one or the other sports bar as soon as the season starts again. Maybe hockey will do the trick, too? I am excited to find out. Other than that, I also love a good book and having a nice evening out with some friends.

Right now, I am starting to discover Vancouver and we will probably meet at one of our upcoming events. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask; you will find me on Facebook.

I cannot wait to meet you all!

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

Some famous and stupid Internet trends that made us laugh! Anything better to start the weekend in a good mood.

lori

God save the absurd humor. Tumblrs, Facebook pages and YouTube videos full of cats, fatty little boys, pictures with a comment below, hilarious gifts,… The main source of time wasting, the only thing that you really need to enjoy an amazing evening with a friend (except a computer with network). The main reason that explains why I didn’t finish my bachelor with honors.

Do you have to study, to clean the house, to write that email to your mother….But finally what do you do? Go to the computer to waste many hours doing… anything. Only watching stupids things in Internet. That’s sound familiar to you?  Don’t worry, you are not a simply and boring lazy person, you are a victim of the Procrastination. What does that strange word mean? According to my good friend Wikipedia:

Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time.Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an underlying psychological disorder.

After this you feel kind of better, isn’t it?

Anyway, I want to update you about the hottest, craziest and why not, stupid trends that have happened during this extremely short summer which is now very close to the end.

Hot dogs or legs?

Somebody very tired about that trend of upload pictures to Instagram with a pair of legs and the sea/swimming pool/garden in the back, created that Tumblr where you have many examples about how difficult is to see the difference between a pair of legs and a pair of hot dogs. AWESOME.

http://hot-dog-legs.tumblr.com/

Hungover Owls

Well, I think that this Tumblr doesn’t need more comments… How can an owl looks so sad? Don’t you feel the need to bring them a large amount of ibuprofen and a two liters of water?

http://hungoverowls.tumblr.com/

Ugly Renaissance Babies

Basically, you can find here a wide range of Renaissance Art where the babies look very ugly. And then you have very funny comments below. Simple but effective

Funny Lori

That video is quite old… maybe the Real Frikies of Youtube will hate me to be too obvious, but this so so so so cute that I couldn’t resist about maybe one of the best videos in Youtube. ♥

So, I hope I have given you enough tools for don’t do anything productive in the next two weeks!

Cheers!

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: How to arrive to the new office

As you know, we start this week in a new office. It’s located in the Tinseltown- International Village Mall, a shopping center full of shops and delicious things to eat. Mercedes and I were worried about that fact, so we made a promise each other: try to cook (healthy food) at home and avoid lunch every day here because we can get fat very easily here. But the temptation is too strong 😦

Anyway we are so happy! The new place is fantastic. You will be able to see it in the next HiGHLiGHTS of the week… this week is our 10th episode so we are preparing a very special video with very funny content but you will have to wait until this Friday to watch it!

Maybe it can be a bit confused gets to the new office because you can be lost in the mall. For that reason, we’ve made three videos with the three different ways to come to visit us.

Today, I want to show you how to arrive if you arrive with the SkyTrain Station – Stadium & Chinatown. The closest entrance is in Keefer with Abbott Street. You will see a little square and one Starbucks.

Check it out!

Now it’s impossible to be lost! Now that you know where we are, you can come to visit us and bring some food with you!

INTERNeX Canada: HiGHLiGHTS of the week!

Welcome to the HiGHLiGHTS episode 9!

This week we’ve made a review of the Khatsahlano festival in Kitsiliano. We spent a wonderful evening; the festival really was a success…a lot of concerts, shops, along the 4th avenue, during 10 blocks! We were so tired that Mercedes and Clara had to stop to take a break in the middle of the street. Lena took a picture for the picture of the week. Thanks a lot! 

And like every Wednesday, we choose the best pubs in Vancouver to hang out together and take a break in the middle of the week. This time we went to Malone’s in Pender, in Pender with Seymour Street, in Downtown. The place is pretty cool and the prices are ok.

And this week we made a special INTERNeX Explorer. We went to our partner’s from West Trek to ask them questions about the big Rocky Mountain trip in August. West Trek are the Rockies experts of Canada! We asked them with how many students they go each year, what the most special thing is in the Rocky Mountains and what the party bus is…

About the upcoming events, this weekend, we have a very cool plan for you. We will go to Deep Cove! It’s a beautiful area in the district of North Vancouver. It’s a very beautiful place to visit, we can go to the town, the bay, and after go to the mountains to hiking inside the rainforest. It isn’t pretty hard and you can enjoy an amazing view on the top and we can have a lunch there.

We hope you enjoy the following video and please, don’t forget to share, like and comment!

Cheers,

Clara.
