Day 144 - Resuming

Date: 11/21/12
Location: Costa de Oro, Costa Rica

Word of the day:
Turtle Fact: Leatherback Sea Turtles can dive more than 300 meters. Sea Turtles can stay submerged underwater for as long as 5 hours. But this is dangerous because it slows down the Sea Turtles heart rate to conserve oxygen. 10 minutes can elapse in between heart beats.

8am wake up. I do some emailing and upload some pics. Breakfast (cinnamon rolls).

Resume Day -  I hate to do this but I must. In fact I have been waiting for it to rain so I could have a "rainy day" but considering it has not rained over a week, I must due this on a 'sunny day". What I am talk about is going through and updating all my "real world paperwork". So I spent my morning and afternoon hours filled with updated the resume, LinkedIn as well as sending out some more feelers for opportunities in the work force. These are items which are better off done early in the game, rather than trying to struggle around last minute to hand over a "half-assed" piece of work that can potentially change your future. I didn't feel as bad though, as today was a scorcher. I tell myself I would have burned myself (knock on wood it has not happened yet in my entire 5 months in CR) if I would have spent the day outside anyway.

Get sweaty. Run. Swim. Sunset. Baby release (5). Dinner (French Onion Soup). Nature:30. Updates to


Lesson: Life moves on, even if your not ready

Food: French Onion Soup. I have wanting this one for a while. Courtney was able to get a recipe from her dad and piece it together from the resources we had.
Animals: Dogs, Birds, Spiders, Flies, Ants, Crabs, Mosquitoes

Something I am thankful for:
Something I don't want to admit: It felt good to be at a computer all day. Certainly reminding me a semi-normal job, with out the claustrophobia of being in the office. It's was certainly a comfort task.
