INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday

One of the most common conversations is around how fast the time goes! Time flies, isn’t it? But there are so many countless and unforgettable moments that you’ll keep on mind forever…

When something important finishes in a way that you didn’t expect, no matter if it is about your professional or your personal life, people usually blame themselves for wasting their time doing that…

I can totally understand that posture but I just can’t think like that. If something happens must be for a reason, and there is no better way to learn that learning or your own mistakes.

If you spent your time doing a job that you didn’t like, it’s OK. You realize and probably understand more about what you want or you don’t want in your future.

If you started one degree that you didn’t like, you didn’t waste one year of your life. You win the chance to know what you want to become one day and what certainly not.

If you spent your time with someone that was special for you and you were special for that person as well but in some point that changes… Forget about the hate; just try to stay positive and happy for enjoying that special time. Feel proud of yourself for being able to trust that person, sometimes and more after bad experiences is not that easy, and you have to be really brave to open up yourself once again. But it doesn’t make any sense to try to hate someone that you just love (d). It’s not really sincere, and lie is always an option, for sure, but there is just one person who you would never be able to lie. Yourself.  So always follow what you think, and what you feel, no matter what the rest of the world tell you.

So forget the word mistake, just call it experience.

Enjoy this Friday doing something or with someone that makes you smile! That should be the only rule of this life!

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Even the name sounds delicious. This store is amazing… but if you have a history of cavities or an upcoming dentist appointment – stay away from this place! Why? See for yourself.

This place could be your worst nightmare or your heaven on earth. If you’re like me… somedays it may be deadly to walk in here! I can be quite an impulsive shopper on an empty stomach. When I visited this store the other day, I walked out with an Apple Pie Caramel apple. It was absolutely divine! Everyone should visit this store while in Vancouver! They do have shops in other cities, but come on! Just look at all the goodies!

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is an international franchisor, confectionery manufacturer and retail operator in the United States, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. The Company is based in the charming old-west town of Durango located on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains in southwestern Colorado. From its 53,000 square foot factory, the Company manufactures an extensive line of premium chocolate candies and other confectionery products to supply its many franchise locations, delivered fresh by its fleet of refrigerated trucks.

The factory typically produces approximately 300 chocolate candies and other confectionery products, using proprietary recipes developed primarily by its master candy maker. These products include many varieties of clusters, caramels, creams, meltaways, truffles and molded chocolates. Individual stores prepare a variety of caramel and candy apples, fudge, chocolate items and confections in full view of the customer using traditional cooking utensils such as copper kettles on gas-fired stoves and marble slab cooling tables.

Neat huh? I’ll leave you with a few more pictures. If you would like to visit their website, click here! The location I visited was at 1017 Robson Street. They even had cute little piggy candy apples. They also serve fudge, ice cream and truffles. If you’re good you’ll show up just in time for samples 😉 …

That’s all for now guys! Gotta jet, I’m hungry…
