If I had seen this role when I was a senior in college, I probably would have been all OVER this! Royal Caribbean is offering one exciting opportunity right now to an individual that is willing to quit their job and become their social media intern for 3 weeks. As part of the benefits, you’ll get to hang out on the cruise line for free – basically a vacation – and you’ll get paid a stipend of $3,700 for three weeks of work. Doesn’t sound too bad, right? As long as you know how to use a smartphone and know the basics of Instagram, you’d be in pretty good shape!
To apply, you need to show Royal Caribbean your best travel photo and hashtag it with the following: #RoyalCaribbean and #ExtraordinaryExplorer. The only downside to this is that you’re going to be competing with a ton of people! I just checked the Extraordinary Explorer hashtag which already has over 100,000 posts in it, but I’m sure as the competition goes on, it will be even more challenging.
Also if you work in tech, maybe you don’t have to quit your job after all! Most will need to, but if you’re at a company with an unlimited vacation policy and have a manager that doesn’t mind you taking 3 consecutive weeks off, you could pull it off.

When I first landed on this post, I didn’t read any of it. Instead, I did the wrong thing and went through the illustrations done by @inoffensive and tried to figure out which illustration I identified with the most. I was hoping that as I went on further, I would be able to figure out what this was all about and I didn’t so I had to go all the way back to the beginning. This Tumblr of images basically shows people that we typically do choose one thing over the other and by doing so, this shows us what kind of people we are.

We are all notorious for this. We get into work and continue to work until the day is done. We’re so busy we don’t take a lunch, not because we’re not hungry, but because we just forget to. It becomes so routine that we completely let a whole day slip by us. In our heads, we might think this is productive, but in reality this isn’t doing our health any good. Lifehack has provided us with 10 websites that we can refer back to throughout our work day that will not only keep us calm, but boost us to become more productive than we initially were. To check them out, click here. My favorite is Simply Rain, but that’s just because it reminds me of home!
