The Best Job In The World

(PHOTO: Help me blog from here!!!)

Over the last couple of weeks I've received about a dozen emails from people telling me to apply for "The Best Job In The World." For those of you who haven't heard, Tourism Queensland is having a contest to become the caretaker for the islands of the Great Barrier Reef.

As many of you know, my time here in Vietnam is coming to an end. I've been contemplating my future and have a few ideas in mind as to where I'll end up later this year after my stint with my family back in New Jersey. However, if I can get the great barrier reef job, that would clearly trump all my other plans.

Having worked in casting for a few years, I know the likelihood of getting this job is slim to none. Tens of thousands of people are applying -- including those of you who are first hearing about this competition on my blog and now are going to apply yourself -- and only one will win. However, as all of my math teachers from Grade 5-12 can attest: I suck at math. I'm not gonna let simple odds stop me from trying!!!

My video application has just been posted:

The video had to be one minute or less. Mine is exactly one minute. If you've got the time go watch my video...and hopefully give me a five star rating.

I mean how freaking cool would it be if I can blog for six months from THE GREAT BARRIER REEF!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the help!
