Your inner rebel might come out
Performances make you so proud
There are so many birthday parties…
And so many holidays…
You get to share your love of sports teams from your home country
And to learn about new ones here
Your bedroom is not always a sanctuary
And getting your hair done takes on a whole new meaning
You'll learn a new appreciation for coffee
Sometimes you're treated like a carnival ride
Or just a mode of transportation
There are days when not everyone wants to have his or her photo taken
And there are days that are overwhelming
But in the end it is all worth it
Because this is the Best. Job. Ever.
