INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday Good purposes for the New Year

New Year, new life… that’s what people say!  This time of the year is the perfect time to plan some changes, to think about what you want to do next, to make some good purposes for the future…What are yours?

1) Almost everyone wants to become healthier, do more sport, and eat better…  Of course! We all want to look hot but the problem is that work out and veggies are not that “fun” as fast food and TV

2) Save money. We all want to have a lot of money in our accounts…but it’s so difficult to say no   to a beautiful dress, to some drinks with friends…oh expensive good life!

3) Traveling… I can do that! Yes for sure! I prefer this one that the previous one!

4) Be a better person, help the other… There is nothing bad is this purpose!

5) Quit smoking, or stop drinking coffee or any kind of vice! Similar to number 1, easy to say difficult to do… but at least try!

6) Get a job or a better job…Mm for sure! We need to keep optimist and try, fail, try, fail, try and get!

7) Be in love! Probably the most difficult one! It’s a risk, but if you don’t try you don’t win!

Ok now it’s time to write down your personal purposes! Sometimes is not easy to get them but the only way to change your life and improve yourself is having dreams and goals, so even it’s just a classic, I will keep doing my own personal purposes for New Year!

Enjoy your day,

This week is Pride Week!

It is time for Vancouver’s Annual Pride Parade! Ever since Craig Rodwell proposed to hold a gay pride parade in New York on November 2, 1969 it has grown into a world wide event attracting thousands of people every year. Even though Toronto has emerged as a leader on progressive gay and lesbian policy in North America, Vancouver knows how to have a great Parade! Last year the Parade spanned out over 20 blocks and attracted an audience of over 600,000 people!

Each year, the Vancouver Pride Society selects a theme for the Vancouver Pride celebration. The theme selected for 2009, “Educate, Liberate, Celebrate,” so accurately gets to the heart of the Pride celebration’s purpose that it will carry through as the theme for 2010 and 2011, as well. Each year, one of the three elements will be highlighted. This year the focus is on Liberate and what it means to be free.

Leading up to the Pride parade on Sunday August 1 there are several Pre-Pride activities to do around town. Some of the pride activities are:

Thu July 29, 2010 Pride Movie NightVancity Theatre

Fri July 30, 2010 Pride Weekend Launch, J Lounge, 1216 Bute St.
