Remember our application for the Best Job in the World?
Remember how we got in the top 200 out of 35,000 applicants, but DIDN’T win?
And remember how that was such a bummer?
Well, we got a second kick at the can. Not the SAME can, but a similar one. We submitted our 60 second application video to be “Thailand’s Ultimate Explorers”. Given that this competition was basically on the heels of the Best Job in the World—and we kind of felt like dweebs—we decided not to tell people about our application unless we made the top 25 (at which point we would’ve begun to regularly harass each and every one of you for votes).
As it turned out, we did not make the top 25, but decided to share our video anyway. We had a hootin rootin good time making the video, and even got to use the green screen at the University of Lethbridge—our alma mater. If we don’t share the video, then it’s just time down the drain… and who likes time a-wasted?!
So, that was our second kick at the can. I can’t guarantee that it was our last kick at the can though… we’re Lowell and Julie. This is what we do.
