Imagery attracts us more so than a plain piece of text. In fact, we process images 6,000 times faster than words. This is the very reason why Instagram, a photo-sharing platform, is dominating over any other form of social media.
Your first day is for you to get settled in. This is your chance to wander around The Castle that will be your new home for the next three months. Get to know your new housemates, unpack your things, and maybe recharge yourself after that long journey with a nap in one of the many hammocks. Naps are a luxury you might not have every day, so take advantage of this chance while you can. Soon after, we’ll start throwing work on you.
