Other Comments
I got to go snowboarding every other weekend. This was a great experience and would highly recommend to people who have the attitude to seek opportunities for self development. There isn't always someone to watch over and ask work to be done. Often, I had to find my own opportunities and ensure that things around the office were done weekly or daily, and these things became my daily tasks.
