Hmmm, I just wrote out a ridiculously funny little essay on “Why I want to change my life and become a PADI instructor.” Then when I went to submit it you, had a list of things to do and not to do, none of which I succeeded in getting across in my first attempt, I mean how was I supposed to know that you would be wanting to know things like what I’m like, what I do, my character and why I deserve to win etc. I mean it’s not a job interview or anything, oh wait a min…. :/
So anyway after spending the last couple of days in a drunken daze, despairing that the brilliant writing I displayed in my first effort would never see the light of day, I have finally pulled myself up out of the gutter and decided to give it another crack.
I guess should start with the original and the easiest question to answer, simply put who wouldn’t want to spend seven months on a tropical island diving? I could go into it a lot deeper but I think it is pretty obvious and besides when you made me rewrite all this quite frankly you missed out on all my little pearls of wisdom regarding this 😉
Why do I deserve this is an altogether different question one I am not sure I can answer, I’m not even sure I do deserve it, I mean I am a nice guy and all but I could think of a lot more deserving people than myself to get this opportunity, that being said I would certainly take it given the chance.
Lets see, what’s next, ahh, what I’m like, what I enjoy about life, my character, this is dangerous territory. I like the saying “just because you ARE a character doesn’t mean you HAVE character.” Well in this case my good sir’s you have indeed lucked out because I am a character blessed with character. I’m a bit of an old bastard these days, having just entered the naughty forties but that’s not such a bad thing, I’m still having fun. I can be a bit of an idiot at times, in a good way of course, and still enjoy a good party but i tend to appreciate things and the world a bit more now. I enjoy life itself I guess.
Ok so next was where I live and what I do, lets see, I’m an Aussie, from Melbourne, great place, love it and it’ll always be home but I really don’t want to be here right now, want to see more of the world, wether it is through this or some other means. I don’t really do much at the min, hang with friends, go out, have a few drinks, do a bit of writing, a lot of reading, not enough diving, sit at home doing a whole lot of nothing trying to save cash for my next adventure somewhere over the rainbow
