10 Romantic Things to do With Your Partner on Valentines Day

We browsed around online and here is what we found on huffingtonpost

With all due respect to dinner and a box of chocolates, your Valentine’s Day plans could probably use a little shake-up.

To that end, we’ve gathered 10 unique things to do with your partner come February 14.

1. Look through your old Facebook photos.
Valentine’s Day plans don’t have to be expensive. Keep things low-key romantic by snuggling up on the couch and clicking through your old Facebook photos and wall posts. Facebook conveniently groups all your interactions with a person under the “see friendship” button on their profile. (We apologise in advance for all the cringing you’ll do when you read messages sent during the crush phase of the relationship.)

2. Do a fitness class together.
You + your boo + the gym = a match made in heaven. Studies have shown that couples report feeling more satisfied with their relationships and more in love with their partners after partaking in an exciting physical challenge. Plus, the physiological response you get from breaking a sweat ― a flushed face, a rapid pulse ― may put you in the frame of mind for a different kind of physical activity. Wink wink, nudge nudge.

3. Make a joint vision board.
Bring your New Year’s resolutions to life by creating a joint vision board with photos and phrases that speak to the goals you hope to achieve this year as a duo. (A photo of Cabo here, a “life is short, order the pasta” headline there ― you get the picture.)

4. Cook dinner for each other.
Channel your inner John Legend and Chrissy Teigen and cook for each other. Few things bring you closer as a couple or feel more nurturing than making food for a loved one.

“Giving to others fills us in so many ways,” Michal AviShai, a culinary arts therapist, told HuffPost. “And even more so when it’s cooking, because feeding fulfils a survival need, and so our feeling of fulfilment comes not only from the good of the act of giving, but also the fact that we have ‘helped’ in some very primal way. We have given fuel.”

5. Volunteer.
Make the most of your couple time by volunteering at a local nonprofit. Chances are your nearest school feeding scheme or homeless shelter could use the help; most nonprofits, particularly those involved in food service, see an influx of volunteers over the festive season until the new year, then a drop-off after New Year’s Day. Use an app like GiveGab to find volunteering opportunities you’re both interested in.

6. Try something new together.
Remember when you first got together, and even mundane things like a trip to the shops felt exciting? Recapture those feelings by doing something brand-new together: Buy that Groupon for a hot air balloon trip (sure, it’s kind of corny, but think of all the Instagram opportunities). Check out that new Thai restaurant down the street. Doing something new together increases oxytocin ― the so-called “love hormone” ― so you’ll grow closer than you would if you stayed home and watched Netflix.

7. Challenge yourselves to only make out.
When was the last time you had a good high school-esque makeout sesh? Getting handsy without the expectation of sex could add some much needed passion to your relationship, Los Angeles-based sex therapist Moushumi Ghose told HuffPost.

“If orgasm happens, great — that’s the icing on the cake,” she said. “But sex can also be as simple as a heavy make-out session in the nude, some time together in the bath, or even a massage.”

8. Make it a double date.
One-on-one time is nice, but there’s no rule against making Valentine’s Day a group activity. In fact, it could be good for everyone involved. A 2014 study presented at the Society for Personality and Social Psychology conference showed that couples who received validation from another couple while on a double date or in any other social situation felt greater passion toward each other after the group outing.

9. Reread your vows.
Embrace the schmaltz of Valentine’s Day and revisit the vows you made to each other at your wedding. If you’re not married, think back on the promises you’ve made to each other through the years, or consider drafting some makeshift vows to revisit each year. If you’ve gotten slightly off-track in your relationship, reflecting on your promises could help you course-correct. And adding new vows or goals to your list will help keep things exciting.

10. Go on your first date again.
Make the day extra sweet by recreating your first date, right down to that awkward half hug you shared at the end of the night. The more details you get right in recapturing it, the better. Get on with your cheesy selves, guys ― it’s Valentine’s Day, the cheesiest day of them all.

The Youngest BSc Student at University of Pretoria is Just 14 Years Old

14-year-old Hjalmar Rall‚ who starts studying for his bachelor’s degree‚ only has thoughts of science.

The boy from Riebeek Kasteel in the Western Cape will be studying towards a BSc Physics degree at the University of Pretoria (UP)‚ which he believes is the “best there is”.

Hjalmar is excited to start his new journey and cannot wait to be among his new study mates.

“I want to ask even bigger questions and find out what else there is to do‚ particularly in theoretical physics and astrophysics‚” he said.

 

The teenager‚ who was home-schooled by his father‚ Heinrich‚ started the high school curriculum three years early and was elated to pass his A-levels — the UK equivalent of matric — last year. Quoting a character from Alice in Wonderland he said it was an “oh frubjous day‚ caloo‚ calay”.

He told TMG Digital his curiosity had always been piqued by the world of science. “Our family discussed the universe at home since I can remember. I was fortunate in that I grew up in a place where we could see the stars at night. A BSc will help me answer all the questions that were raised by staring into space.”

 

Hjalmar said that he was overwhelmed by his strong academic performance but was also excited at the prospect of moving to Pretoria with his family. When he is not hitting the books‚ Hjalmar enjoys drawing‚ photography‚ writing haikus and trawling the internet just like any other teen. “I have a passion for researching useless information‚” he added.

This whiz-kid’s mantra in life is to always enjoy what you are doing for it to not be a chore. “As long as it’s not boring‚ I do it‚” said Hjalmar.

10 Reasons to Become a Nurse in South Africa

1. The Nursing Profession is Always in Demand
Nursing is one of the fastest growing careers world-wide. This only could be a valid reason for you to enter the health care industry since you will not be jobless as there is a demand for nurses.
2. Population Growth versus the Demand
As the population grows, there will be more and more demand for health care workers, so if you prepare yourself for the industry, you might stand a good chance to grab the available opportunities.


3. Retirement of the Current Health Care Workers
As the current health care workers reach their retirement ages, you have to be on standby to take over. Their retirement opens an opportunity for you to be absorbed in the industry.
4. Specializations give Nurses a Variety of Choices
Nursing is not just one general profession; there are divisions in the nursing career. Ranging from auxiliary workers, midwifery to other specialities. So, you have a choice to specialise in your nursing field or just do a general programme. Some of the more unique specialisations include travel nurses, plastic surgery nurses and even cruise ship nurses.
5. Continue Your Education
The government and private companies offers some opportunities in education and training assistance for their employees. You can complete your education at your local college or university while working as a nurse. The sky is the only limit. Take advantage of the internal trainings that the government offers their employees.
You can also apply for internal bursaries and scholarships that are designed for employees of the institutions that has employed you.


6. Flexibility of Working area and Schedule
It’s a commonly-known fact that nurses have a lot of flexibility in their schedule.
Flexibility in location is another reason to pursue a career as a nurse. Nurses can work anywhere from traditional locations such as hospitals and doctor’s offices to less-obvious locations such as home health care, schools and even in the air as an emergency flight nurse.
7. The Nursing Profession is Well-Respected
Nursing is a career that you can be proud of, maybe it’s even a career where others will look up to you. People entrust nurses with some of the most significant moments in their lives. In addition, nursing provides unlimited opportunity for personal growth.
8. Get the Benefits Package
The total package of government pay, health and child-care benefits, and retirement savings plans are competitive with those offered in the private sector.
9. Give a Smile to Someone’s Face
People go to health care centres not only to get physical help but also to get back the smile back on their faces. Feel happy when you see that smile on your clients.
10. Land a Helping Hand
A nurse will not only province for physical care, but can also impact on people’s lives through health education and wellness programmes. This will impact on their emotional well-being and might contribute in future health care choices.
