As the first month of 2017 comes to an end I decided to share the top events/things I’m looking forward to in February.
DECA UGH Invitational
If you’ve read my previous blog post you’ll know that I am a part of the DECA Chapter at my University. This is my final year as a member and my first year as an executive. This upcoming weekend will be our 3rd Annual Invitational. We have been tirelessly working since last summer to bring an amazing event for DECA delegates.
It is an amazing feeling to be hosting such a large event and being a part of the behind the scenes work. This invitational couldn’t have been done without the amazing team I had the opportunity to work with this past year. Working with such a talented group of women that get things done effectively, efficiently and on time has been an amazing experience. Shout out to our all-female executive team for all our hard work the past 2016-2017 school year. ❤
Colin James Concert
Are you between the ages of 18-25? Do you know this man on the left? If so you’re one of the few that do! Most people my age probably have never heard of Colin James. My parents introduced me to his music when I was quite young, and he just so happens to be the first concert I attended! I’m lucky enough that my best friend also loves & knows about him too. Colin James might be my parents age but he is the most handsome Canadian guitar playing rock star. He’s currently touring his new blues album and I’ll be seeing him for his Toronto show.
Take a listen:
Five Long Years
Keep on Loving Me Baby
Why’d You Lie
Valentine’s Day Tradition – Fondue for Four
For the past four years, I’ve spent Valentines Day (or the weekend before/after it) with friends, enjoying fondue and watching a not-holiday-specific movie. It’s a great excuse to get together with friends to enjoy some sweets & some laughs.
TIP: 1) Use Toblerone chocolate for your fondue. 2) Make sure to have a variety of fruit & sweets. Our favorites are strawberries, bananas, apples, and Oreos. If everyone brings one fruit, you’re set!
For most of us students, reading week is in February, which means……catching up on school work. But make sure you find some time to unwind. Catch up with friends who are back in the city or check out that new place you’ve been dying to go to but haven’t had time. Essentially, do the things you can’t do doing the semester. But don’t forget to book a day to yourself and only you (I personally need to take this advice). Spend the day cleaning your room or go to a spa or get your nails done. Do something for you.
Wine & Cheese Night
Since last August my close group of girlfriends and I decided to do a wine & cheese night every month which gave us a reason to see each other.
Every month a different friend hosts the wine & cheese night. The host is responsible for the beverages and cheese, as well as usually the “main” dish. Everyone else brings something from each food category: carbs, desserts, veggies, meat etc. There’s never an empty plate at any of our nights together. These nights allow us to catch up from our busy schedules as students. We always end up talking about various and random topics such as career goals to bikini waxes to politics to our favorite books. It’s always a night filled with memories, stories, and jokes.
TIP: Planning a night that works well for 6 people can be a hassle, we always make sure to plan a month ahead. We select the next host and date that very night.
