    Thoughts:
    1. apply early
    2. Think about your application as though you were selling ice cream. It\\\'s not about the ingredients, nutritional information, exact temperature; bur rather, it\\\'s about the taste. There is something really appealing about an applicant who has a cohesive taste that they want to get more of.
    3. Honey Badger don\\\'t care. Honey Badger really doesn\\\'t give a shit. It just takes what it wants.
