The G train was delayed, the line at Sweetgreen was down the block, your inbox is out of space and oh, it’s only Tuesday. We feel you, friends. The solution: Work from Hawaii

Hawaii Tourism United States wants to send you to Hawaii…for free, people. You read that correctly; the tourism board is now accepting applicants for a week-long remote-work residency program. Oh, and it’s exclusive to frazzled New Yorkers.

If chosen, you’ll get a free round-trip flight from New York to Hawaii, access to a workspace, accommodations, curated activities and a stipend for food and local transportation. Oh, and free wi-fi. Don’t forget that.

There are six programs in total, tailored to different career industries: the Design Loft in Oahu, the Writing Desk in Molokai, the Tech Lab in Maui, the Corner Office in Lanai, the Location Scout in Kauai and—for serious podcasters—the Sound Space on the island of Hawaii. (Dibs on Molokai.)

The requirements? You have to live in the New York metropolitan area and be 24 to 36 years old with a public Instagram account. If you fit the bill, you can apply online here. But hurry, the deadline is June 4. Clearing our calendars now…
