I have one week and a few hours until I leave for Costa Rica. The puzzle which is packing has been stressing me out some, but I will eventually manage to throw something together.
I will be spending the first month in Orosi, a town outside the capital, San José. Orosi is south of San José. The orientation will serve to give me the tools I will need to teach English in Costa Rica.
I will also be using the month to practice my Spanish. I have hardly had any reason to speak it since last April. It should come back to me though I will have to work on understanding a new country's words and various quirks with Spanish.
A few days ago I saw the blog, OMG I'm the adult. While I had a few moments over the summer as supervisor at the YMCA where that thought went through my head, it was still essentially the same job I have done since I was 16 years old. I am equal parts nervous and excited about having that feeling many more times over the next year. I will definitely be the adult.
