I know in previous posts I’ve shared some of my festival survival tips, but ever since sitting in the “trenches” with the rest of the incredible, hard-working and amazing team members I’ve realized that they have some interesting strategies for getting through the next few weeks, so I felt like I should share them.
HOW NKPR EMPLOYEES GET THROUGH FESTIVAL
- Bunmi keeps her cool by singing musical theatre hits
- Corinna makes sure she always eats
- Nicole goes spinning at Quad Fitness
- André steps away from the computer to go for a jog every night
- Jenna gets by on pure hope and anticipation of a special run-in with one dashing Ryan Reynolds
- Tim stays healthy with his personal desk garden of fruits and veggies
- Stefani relies on the comfort and warmth of her blanket which is wrapped around her at all times (perhaps to provide warmth where once upon a time there lay an appendix?)
- Dzeneta has taken to chain smoking
- Victoria makes sure to stay on top of the news
- Andrea eats 80-cal ice cream sandwiches and drinks Crystal Light
- Rebecca is getting by with her new ombre hair from Salon Escape
- Aimee is making it through thanks to the new interns
- Rick gets by on the excitement for making a difference for Artists for Peace and Justice. Oh, and caffeine.
- Emma gets by on deep breaths. Lots of them.
- Marissa stays healthily fuelled thanks to her daily signature salad from the Healthy Greek (best dressing ever- but only when it’s not too garlicky)
- Jeannette dreams of the party she’s having when festival is over
- Michelle is surviving with Tylenol Cold & Flu
- Kaley’s WAS yogurt covered raisins….
