Best Job in the World

“Dreams are like stars…you may never touch them, but if you follow them, they will lead you to your destiny.”

April 1 2009.

Well everyone, the moment of truth is almost here.

Tourism Queensland will announce which 10 candidates will join Clare from Taiwan in moving onto the next round tomorrow night. (11:00pm UTC = 5:00pm Thursday, Edmonton time). I spent last night staring at the ceiling as a million different thoughts and scenarios shot in and out of my mind and I’m sure tonight is going to be like that xA lot more. Crossing my toes, my fingers, have whispered a thousand prayers, will continue to pray tonight, and will probably continue to pray in my 3 hour class tomorrow, LOL eep! Oh, I’ve also been listening to some inspirational-type songs on repeat and that should also carry through to tomorrow as well. Haha.

Tomorrow at the time of announcement, I’ll be in my house, standing or sitting very close to my phone and my laptop, with a few friends, and also Global Edmonton and possibly CTV Edmonton, lol. I might also be on MSN talking to some of the other Top 50 candidates but my MSN has been wonky in terms of group chats and invites so we’ll see how that goes.

Dreaming of the Great Barrier Reef... Dreaming of the Best Job in the World..

Anyway at this point I’m putting everything on destiny here. I have always been a firm believer in the notion that things happen for a reason so if I’m meant to move onto the next round then I will. <3

On that note of belief in the supernatural forces and what not, here’s my horoscope for the week/the big day tomorrow:

LEO – Weekly Horoscope

Your friends and partner are offering you a great deal of support, which you can continue to draw upon for long time. You can count on others to help you overcome challenges that could prove disconcerting. With a focus on your adventure zone, you’re looking to get ahead. Your ability to take a leap into the unknown will work in your favor. New love affairs look very promising and will bring you much happiness. This is one area of life that’s going to bring many opportunities to find the right match over the coming months.

April 2nd 2009

Your naturally warm personality is going to melt any icy personalities you encounter today, so it’s going to be a very social day whether you had planned on it or not. From small talk with the stranger standing in line behind you to a surprisingly in-depth conversation with a coworker you never get a chance to talk to, this day offers enriching exchanges that will make you pause and see people in a new light. You may have been judging someone incorrectly.

LOOKING GOOD RIGHT?

Okay… so again, this is it everyone!

Also, if I am announced to be in the next round, I am totally throwing an Australian-y island-themed party for anyone and everyone who can and wants to attend before I head to Australia!!!!! :D :D :D

Now, with a final yearning look at the giant map on the wall of my room (LOL, dramatic much?), I’m off~

(Be sure to check everything I have tomorrow night for reactions and results and what not. I’d start with Facebook and Twitter, followed by probably youtube and/or this blog, lol. Hoping that it’s an excited and happy reaction and not a sad, depressing kind of heart-wrenching one. lol)

Thank you so much everyone for all of your support these last 2 months… This has seriously been such an incredible experience and I hope it doesn’t come to an end tomorrow night.

Talk you all soon… :-)

    The title of your post resonates with me. Have I ever explained my screenname? It’s exactly your title. Go after (chase) those things that you want the most, even if they seem completely out of reach (comets) because you just might get there. And if you don’t, you’ll find something better along the way.

    Crossing everything for you,

  • We got a taste of Venezuela 🇻🇪 today at the new(ish) @avila.arepa in @oldstrathcona! 😊 Arepas are corn buns filled with various toppings. We tried pork and beef arepas, as well as these yuca fries and beef patacones (fried plantains). And we had the cochino fritos - delicious fried pork bites! The restaurant was super busy. It was nice to see Edmontonians embracing Venezuelan food! 😋
Fuller review on the blog soon!👩🏻‍💻

  • If you’re looking for ways to give back this holiday season, I recommend donating your time to @SantasAnonymous! 🎅🏻 They need volunteers to sort, wrap and deliver toys for Edmonton kids in need up to their Delivery Weekend (Dec 16/17). Thanks @britl for organizing her annual #yegwrap volunteer party. It’s something I look forward to each year! It doesn’t take much of your time to help make a family’s Christmas merrier.🎄

  • Keeping warm tonight with homemade Budae Jjigae: Korean “army stew!” 🍜 It’s my favourite Korean soup with spicy broth, spam (😍), tofu, mushrooms, noodles, kimchi, onions, hot dogs and sausage. Typically comes with beans but I don’t like beans so. 💁🏻‍♀️ Love eating this with rice too!
(Soup🍜 + rice 🍚 = life).

  • Brunch two days in a row? OK. 😊😊😊😊 Today’s brunch was at the new @pip_yeg in @oldstrathcona. Avocado toast & eggs benny get four thumbs up over here! 👍🏻 Farmer’s breakfast & french toast were good but not favourites.

  • Soup is my most comforting of comfort foods but I’m also totally comforted with any potatoes. 🤤🙏🏻 like the fried potatoes from @tzin104 - They are packed with flavour - garlic, onions, smoked paprika salt, with “angry” aioli. 😍 (While at Tzin, you also NEED to try chef @corndoghatfire’s bacon dish). What’s your go-to comfort food?? 🍽

  • #DidYouKnow: I record a monthly #socialmedia podcast called @DontCallMeAGuru with my good friend and fellow social media specialist @tylerjackbutler? 🤓🎙 We’ve actually been doing it for an entire year! 🎉 
To commemorate the milestone, I’ve written about and shared the podcasts over on my blog (link in bio 📱💻). Thanks to our listeners and to the great guests we’ve chatted with over the past year! 🙏🏻 We’re excited for another year of social media strategizing (🤓🤓🤓🤓)
