20 Things You Know To Be True When You Work For Odyssey
careeraddict

I know I know, I wrote about this last week... But I just can't help talking about it.

Working as an intern, especially for a company that is expanding as fast as people in New York City walk, can be hectic. There is always somewhere that you need to be, someone that needs your help and each person you meet is just as awesome as the last.

Being an adult is very hard, especially when you're in that awkward in between phase when you're working but you haven't graduated college yet. Internships are great because they show you a glimpse of what real life adult-ing will be like.

As stressful as the #internlife can be, there are 20 things that you know to be true, that also reinforce your love for the job. And these 20 things are even more true, if you have the privilege of working for Odyssey...a.k.a the best place to work. No, but really we have won awards, look it up.

1. Freedom of fashion is a plus.

Having the ability to wear a dress and heels one day, and a graphic tee with jeans the next day is an added bonus. Dressed up or down, you're rockin' your own style either way.

2. You have started typing on your computer like this...

3. The word "dope" is becoming a crucial part of your vocabulary.

4. Work hard, play hard is a way of life.

Sure we all like to laugh and have fun, but business means business.

5. You have brought an entirely new meaning to the word trolling.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world.

I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
