Get Paid To Travel And Eat Stadium Food
If you love watching football, eating and traveling, then listen up. Marriott Hotels and the NFL have teamed up this football season to create what may be your new dream job: Courtyard NFL Global Correspondent. The job involves traveling to football stadiums in London, Mexico City, Minnesota, and Atlanta - for the Super Bowl and the application is open now.
The person chosen for this gig will interview fans of different teams to find “unique and interesting stories of NFL passion,” according to the job description. And because tailgating and stadium food are an important part of the whole football fan experience, you’d be asking hard hitting questions like “Do London sports fans tailgate with fish and chips?”
The application says you need to be passionate and knowledgeable about football and love to travel to qualify. And you’ll also need a flexible schedule since you’ll be heading to London in October, Minneapolis and Mexico City in November, and then to Atlanta in February for the Super Bowl. Want to apply? Check out all the details on the Courtyard Correspondent site.
Would You Rather Text Than Actually Talk?
In what should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, a new poll of 1,141 teenagers, the findings of which are out today, shows that the number of teens who prefer to talk in-person has predictably sunk in favor of texting. Also, what little allure Facebook held among teenagers has almost completely evaporated. This year’s Social Media, Social Life survey from Common Sense Media shows that just 15 percent of teens use Facebook as their primary social media app — down from almost 70 percent in 2012. (The winners this year, of course, are Snapchat and Instagram, with 41 percent and 22 percent popularity among teens, respectively.)
- Why do you prefer texting to talking? Aren’t there more misunderstood texts than conversations?
Where You Should Have Your Breakup Talk
When you’re ready to end things with someone, all you really think about is how you’re going to do it and what you’re going to say. Have you ever thought about WHERE you should be doing that deed? There’s no part of the conversation that’s fun, but if you get your boo in the wrong place, the conversation could end in a disaster.
The goal is to find a location that won’t interrupt your conversation and will allow the breakup to happen seamlessly. Think about a few things:
- How long is the conversation going to be?
- What are the emotions you think the conversation will bring up?
- Make sure you pick a place that will allow you to sit for a long period of time. You also want to make sure you don’t have too many eavesdroppers.
If you’re going to choose one of your places to have the talk – make sure it’s theirs. For starters, the person you’re breaking up with will be able to feel the most at ease. And secondly, you’ll be able to leave when you need to. Breakups suck, but choosing the right location can make things a little easier.
How You Feel About Making The Bed Says A Lot About You
Are you someone who makes your bed as soon as you wake up? Well, if so, you may be having more sex than your friends who don’t make the effort.
A new survey claims that whether or not you make your bed in the morning can reveal a lot about your, and apparently those who do make the bed tend to have more sex than those who don’t. Those who make the bed have sex about three times a week, while those who don’t only get some about two times a week.
Of course, just because people make the bed, doesn’t necessarily mean they like doing so. In fact, the survey finds that 42% of bed makers say their partner is the reason the do it, with another third saying they’d be turned off by a partner who didn’t make their bed in the morning.
- In general, the survey finds that those who make the bed tend to be morning people who wake up without their alarm. Their average nap lasts about 43 minutes, and they tend to be more adventurous, confident, sociable and high-maintenance. As for their hobbies, they like jazz music, and watch episodes of “House Hunters” and romantic movies.
- Meanwhile those who don’t make their beds tend to be night people, who snooze their alarm before waking up. Their naps last about 50 minutes, and they’re more likely to be a rock music fan, and enjoy episodes of “Seinfeld” and comedy movies. They also tend to be shy, moody, curious and sarcastic.
