Eelco Roos from the Netherlands gave up the engineering position at IBM Amsterdam to become a professional Instagrammer, writes Daily Mail. He decided to quit his job after number of his blog’s followers reached more than 100,000 and brands began contacting him with commercial offers. So, Roos realized that he does not have enough time for both his job and Instagram.

We took care of a friends dog for a few days. Kids loved it, but I'm still not convinced.
