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.

(Horoscope taken from reef-job.net).

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,

  • The last time I posted about the delicious and super affordable $11 five piece chicken set with two sides and a drink from @seoulfriedchicken, I didn’t realize they were closed for vacation and a lot of you messaged me and said you tried to go and were sad to find out they were closed lol. SO, I’M SORRY 😭😂💖 BUT! I’m happy to say they are no longer on vacation. 😄 I had a lovely lunch with @heyvanessaleigh there today! THE PESTO MAC AND CHEESE IS MY FAVOURITE MAC AND CHEESE EVER. I could eat it every single day. 🤤😍🤤😍🤤

• skating ⛸ in town and hiking #JohnstonCanyon with @kathytrinhle & @big_mitchy16! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️
Perfect little getaway! 🏔💖

  • Convinced @mikethyking to stop at a couple of #InstagrammableWalls we missed on our last Calgary visit. 😜😊📸 He’s a great #InstagramHusband. We also visited a pop-up wall students worked on at @itsallatthejube (swipe 👈🏻 to see). They said the project was inspired by my Guide to #IGWallsofYYC blog post! 🙏🏻 When blogs/social media inspire action... 💕 It was really cool to see (you can see it too! On display til Mar 30). 💖

  • This #longweekend @mikethyking & I are in Calgary & Banff! I was excited to try sandwich shop & deli @EmpireProvisions and it did not disappoint! 🐷 The porchetta sandwich with rosemary garlic salsa verde was UNBELIEVABLE. One of those first bite makes you exclaim oh my god, kind of dishes. 🤤🙏🏻Must return to try their other sandwiches!! Thanks for the recommendation @jaypeacee! Happy Long Weekend everyone!!

  • Ahead of #ValentinesDay 💕, I thought I’d throw back to this super cute photo of Olive on her Valentine’s spaghetti date with Australian Labradoodle Flynn! He didn’t really share the noodles. They’re no longer together. 👀😂 Click the link in my bio for some Valentine’s (or galentines or palentines) #ExploreEdmonton date ideas I shared on @CTVEdmonton this week! 💗

  • Our regular order at @kazoku_yeg is their delicious tonkotsu black garlic ramen 🍜 (for Mike) & the tonkatsu curry pork 🍛 (for me!) This weekend we added their chicken karaage, which is also wonderful. We love Kazoku! 💕

  • This week I tried a vegan restaurant AND the #SuperFoods menu at @milestonesrestaurants, so I’m feeling pretty healthy right now. 😉 This is the fiery (and it was fiery 🔥) Tunisian Chicken on quinoa and vegetables from #MilestonesRestaurant. They have a special Super Foods menu running until Feb. 25, that I was invited to try this weekend! It features tasty dishes specifically packed with things that are really good for your body, like antioxidants, fibre, omega-3s, protein, vitamins, probiotics and calcium (#FoodwithBenefits!) I also really enjoyed the Tempura Green Beans and Sweet Potato Fries from this same menu! 😋 #sponsored
