1. Your colleagues become your best friends and family.

2. You’ll never have a better view from your office.

3. Every day feels like a Friday - Yay! In fact, you have NO idea what day of the week it is.

4. You start to realise life without social media isn’t so bad. In fact, you actually quite like it!

5. However, you still come away with 100’s of new followers!

6. Your days are filled with SO MANY ACTIVITIES! Seriously, who thought you could fit all of that into just one day?

7. You learn how to survive on very little sleep. You don’t need an alarm clock. Keen campers and a massive bugle will do the trick…

8. …that and Gatorade! Bring on the electrolytes (whatever the hell they are!)

 

9. You wear face paint more often than make up.

10. Tie-dye somehow becomes cool.

25. You’re basically a rock star!
