How many days until DePaul Activities Board (DAB) ‘s FEST 2014? ONE! I could not be more excited to experience the Quad in a concert like atmosphere. How often does someone get to brag that their school transforms their quad into a concert venue for a day every single year? Not too often if I can say so myself. To get keep myself up to date on these artists, I have been listening to their songs endlessly on YouTube. Today I’m sharing some catchy tunes from each artist – enjoy!

Chinese New Year : Year of the Horse

horseyear (1)

This Friday, January 31st is the celebration of the Chinese New Year (Lunar)! According to the Chinese zodiac calendar, this is the year of the horse.

What does the year look like to those born in the year of the horse? Here ‘s some quick information from the

Year: Born in 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954, 1942, 1930, 1918
The year of the horse means there is leadership associated with this sign this year, so your authority may increase, according to Ng. However, the impulsive behaviour of the horse can lead to recklessness, so stay away from gambling and speculations.
Work: Those in positions of authority will do well, but chancy businesses, like the stock market, are a bad idea.
Wealth: Don’t expect to make a lot money, and value the income you have.
Relationships: There won’t be a lot of excitement in your love life, and if you are engaged, you might want to delay your marriage until next year.
Health: Watch your health this year — you’ll get tired and can catch bugs easily. Make exercise and rest a priority.

Happy Chinese New Year to all those who celebrate!
