This Could Be Me!

This Could Be Me!

I’m feeling restless.  I want to get out and go do something.  I’ve been working so much recently that I haven’t really gone out with my friends or really even done anything exciting in the last few weeks and it’s starting to get to me.  One of my friends is coming into town from another state this weekend and I’m looking forward to seeing them just cuz it will be something to do.  We’re all going to meet at another friend’s place and grill and have some drinks and just chill.  I’m going stir crazy right now!

I may have to put in some PTO and just go somewhere.  Have you ever just randomly gone on a trip without having any particular place in mind?  Like just go to the airport and get on a plane?  I don’t know if I’m quite spontaneous enough to do that, but I want to do something.  I want to go surfing in Costa Rica.  I’ve never been surfing before but it looks like it would be fun.  Actually, speaking of surfing, I saw a show on TV a few years ago about this indoor surf park they have in Japan.  The waves are created artificially but you can ride them the same as normal waves.  The show talked about this surfer from Australia who went to the park when he was in Japan and he liked it so much that he moved there and now he’s an instructor.  Talk about doing what you enjoy for a living!

Japan may be a bit far away, so I think I’ll stick with Costa Rica for now.  I have a friend from University who studied thee for a semester as part of his degree in teaching Spanish.  He said it was awesome, and in fact when I first thought about going there he popped into my mind so I sent him a message and asked him about his time there and he was like “omg, do it, go, now!”  So, that’s just encouraging me.

Is surfing hard?  Have any of you gone before?  I remember trying to skateboard when I was a kid and I wasn’t very good at it.  Wasn’t skateboarding actually invented because of surfing?  Like they wanted to be able to ride the waves even when they weren’t buy the ocean so they put some wheels on a board or something?  I may have that completely wrong but I think I heard that somewhere.

If I go you can expect pictures!
