Looking forward to Good Friday?

So I’m not sure about the rest of you but I’m ready for the summer to get here! School is really cracking down on me now because of final exams and final papers and the entire student body is just burnt out and lots of people are getting sick…boo! But don’t fret there is a light at the end of this dark tunnel…wow way to be over dramatic eh?! We do have a FOUR DAY WEEKEND to look forward to. Next Friday, March 2nd and Monday, March 5th we have those days off! Thank God…some could say literally…for Good Friday and Easter Monday. I have nothing special planned for that weekend, which is nice but Vancouver is hosting lots of “long weekend” parties. So why not start the weekend off right and  party hard on a Thursday. Venues such as The Academic, Republic, Library Square, etc So make sure you get on grabbing some tickets for whichever event you are interested in cause those tickets will be swept up quickly! If you’re not sure of what you want to do then check out sites such as clubzone for listing of events and venues. Otherwise if you want to take this time to stay in and relax that’s another option too but just remember you have FOUR DAYS to do it!
