Speaking of social media, we have this crazy thing that we at The Bolt have been trying to get started for some time now; it’s called #DearBolt and it’s purpose is to share your thoughts with the world, or at least Concordia. All you have to do is write a post on Facebook and Twitter (and make sure the post is available to the public) and use the hashtag #DearBolt so we can find it and of course publish them. So, if you have something on your chest and you want if off; or you just want to thank a stranger for being kind; or complain about your commute, let us know you’re doing it.
Since this article seems to be all about fun times and things I have some more exciting news! Oscar Mayer, the wiener people, have recently announced that they are making Lunchables, the snack that everyone loves, for adults. If you weren’t sure, that means you! Adult Lunchables will be called P3, which stands for Portable Protein Pack and will come in a sleek looking yellow and black packaging, you know so “real adults” don’t feel embarrassed to have them for lunch. Sadly the mini-chocolate bar will not be included, apparently OM doesn’t think adults need candy. Instead we get a healthy alternative, nuts; almonds and peanuts are the nut options <insert giggles here>. Meat options for include chicken, turkey, or ham and cheese options being cheddar or Colby-Jack. So while the adult option might sound fun at first it is unfortunately just a rather large disappointment; guess you’re just going to have to keep buying the old school Lunchables for kids.
Now on to paper business, I’d like to take this opportunity to say that we are now taking writing samples and resumes for writers for next year. That’s right next year! I hope that sounds advertise-y enough to get your attention. If you would like to write for us in any one of our current sections or have a great idea for one, let us know by e-mailing a writing sample, for example an essay or sample article, and your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. We, in my opinion, have made big strides this year and we want to take it further by hiring more writers for a wider variety of subjects. If you want to be published or you’ve wanted to let the world see your writing apply today! Need more encouragement? The job pays! To sum up, a paying job, getting your work published, and have fun while doing it. We hope to hear from you soon!
