Another Day, Another Blogger...........

My birthday is officially over now.........
This is the first year that i really haven't been all that excited for it. Maybe it's because my birthday was also a dreaded deadline for a looming online class. Maybe it's because it sorta also marks the beginning of the rest of my life and the real world. Who knows??

Today i got to:

• wake up early and go to the dentist
• run a few errands
• drive 2 hrs away just to pack up some shit and drive back

But i did get to spend some quality family time and have a nice dinner. And i got a badass new camera. Thanks to the glory of Facebook, i did get about a million birthday wishes. Thanks.

But i'm going to officially celebrate the date of my birth this weekend in.......

Costa Rica. Oh yeah, six days of reclined bliss in a Rain Forest that just happens to butt up to the Pacific Ocean.

This will most likely be my last post from this country, cause i got another busy day tomorrow. So (hoping i can find some sort of Internet service in the jungle) the next time you hear from me, i'll be layin' in a hammock with my new copy of To Live's To Fly and a piƱa colada.

P.S. - expect a ton of kickass pictures like this one upon my return.........
