    AN ACTUAL GOODBYE NOTE FROM SOPHIE

    Today we said a teary goodbye and good luck to our #villageintern, Sophie – for real this time. Before heading off on her next great adventure, she took the time to share her Village&Co. experience (Part 2).

    What would you tell all future interns?

    If you make a date with Nora, for the love of everything good and holy DO NOT FORGET ABOUT IT.

    What was the best advice you received while at Village&Co. to date?

    "Figure it out your damn self." - the wisest Account Manager, Janice.

    Best discovery while interning at Village&Co.?

    Phnom Penh. Hands down. #butterbeefovereverything

    Sum up each member of the team with one GIF.

    Justin: What is anyone ever talking about?

    Nora: No explanation needed. #insidejokes

    Janice: Janice, you were my ride or die this summer.

    Ana: Ana has the scoop on everything before it’s cool. #earlyadopter

    Carolina: Carolina isn’t always sassy, but when she is sassy, she’s Nene Leakes-type sassy.

    Monkey: Monkey, all I ever wanted was for us to be besties.

    Final thoughts on your internship with Village&Co.

    A massive thanks to all of these beautiful people for giving me such an amazing opportunity to grow and learn. I had such an amazing time while I was at Village&Co., and this experience is something that I will neva eva forget. This was my first real taste of the much talked about “real world”, and I’m grateful to have had the Village&Co. crew guide me in my first post-secondary venture. I’ll miss the gifs, the teasing and the pity laughs at my jokes. But most of all, I’ll miss staring at Janice from across her desk for 8 hours of my day. I’ll catch y’all on the flip and I’ll miss y’all mucho.

    PEACE AND BLESSINGZ.

    #streetart

    You can paint on canvas. You can paint on paper. You can even paint the city. It just so happens that the latter of this list is one of our favourite depictions of art and we want to share a roundup of our favourite street art Instagram accounts.

    • @streetartanarchy - With a huge following, this Instagram account features all different styles of street art from around the world.
    • @impermanent_art - What would a street art roundup be without a shout out to Los Angeles? This Instagram account captures street art that is found throughout the City of Angels.
    • @houseofmeggs - Hailing from Australia, this Instagram account features the artist’s works from murals to photography.
    • @r_o_n_e - Expect to see a lot of beautiful faces from this Melbourne-based artist. Mixing the real with the surreal.
    • @banksyny - Although this account has been inactive since October 2013, it is a must-follow for any Banksy fan. This account is an ode to Banksy’s short stint in NYC in late 2013.
    • iheartthestreetart.com - Although this is not an Instagram account, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to showcase his Vancouver-based artist, whose street art is shown above. This artists’s work is a subtle and intelligent social commentary, which we absolutely love.

    In addition to these accounts, keep an eye out in Vancouver right now, as artist Mega McGrath sprinkles the city with some classic hip-hop lyrics that’ll encourage you to take a second out of your busy day and appreciate the now. After all, isn’t that what life is all about?

    Bayshore HealthCare | The Things We Do — Georgina

    Our latest project with Bayshore HealthCare puts the spotlight on their Home Care Services. We asked Bayshore caregivers to share their personal experiences and stories while on the job.

    The response was full of positive and thoughtful recounts of all “the things they do” and what it’s like to care for their clients. We brought their caregivers’ true stories to life with papermation magic.
