The best job in the world

I just finished shooting a video resume for "THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD!" A job as a caretaker of an Australian island off the great barrier reef. The job itself entails living on an island, in a large villa, and swimming. And that's pretty much it. The winner will be required to post weekly blog videos and posts about things they've done on the island. Things such as arranged spa samples, dining out at the island's fine restaurants, and tours around the area. I'm looking for feedback, so tell me what you think, and what you'd say if this is the only insight you had into who Greg is.

It's here on paul's website

 We'll post it on the website shortly after. Thanks!

Australian customs wants to know..

I just applied for my Australian visa, and these are a few... amusing, albeit necessary questions the bureau of immigration just HAD to ask me.

have you ever:

been involved in the comission of war crimes or crimes against humanity or human rights?

left any country to avoid being deported

been aquitted of any criminal offence or other offence on the grounds of mental illness, insanity, or unsoundness of mind?

been involved in any activity, or been convicted of any offence, relating to the illegal movement of people to any country (including Australia)?

Of course, I feel like i have divulged too much, since i answered yes to all of them.
My trip might get put off a wee bit.

Going to Australia

Dear Blog,

I know it is hard to hear from me after such a long time. I know I have changed in the time since we talked, but just sit down with me, and listen to my case for a little while. To be honest, There's been lots of time during which I could've talked to you, but I chose to take care of some things, because I felt like I wasn't ready to face you yet. Until now.

I left school, that wonderful place called studio 58. I realise it makes me seem like a quitter, that I don't try hard enough. But honestly, That place was not for me. I wasn't ready for it yet. I love it to death, and I still the memory stings that I don't have it anymore. But studio and I aren't ready to be together yet. Maybe we'll get back together sometime, if it can take me back, or if it hasn't been put off by the first impression it's gotten of me. Like you, it needs to give me a chance. That's all I can ask of you both.

I've taken some time for laziness, for sure. That I cannot deny. I've taken time fooling around, when I could've done things to forward my life. Productive things. But that is the past, and I have since then been kicked in the ass and put on the right track. I am going to Australia.

I've always wanted to go, to experience a place as wild as it always seems when its' even mentioned in a sentence. A continent that's also a country!? Who knew? So Australia beckons, and I straighten up, and strive headlong for her. I am heeding her call. The call I've heard for a long time. Because I don't want to look back my life in regret and say "what if?" I want it now! All of it! About a week ago I had a dream I was there, and since then I can't stop thinking about her. She's beautiful in my dream. I plan to go away in february, and worry not, dearest blog. I will find ways to love you and her at the same time.

The only one you could ever love like you used to,
