Travel Journal - Bri Bri Waterfall
Today I'm a little messed up and hung over. It was Heather's birthday yesterday, so we all went to Bri Bri to the waterfalls. It was about a 30 minute hike through the jungle passing by such amazing ponds, little animals etc. It was so much fun, we all jumped from the waterfall into a smaller pool of water below. Me Lora, Heather, Peto, Beth and Joshua.
For days and weeks I've been trying to tell myself not to forget to write Amy on her birthday and what do you know typical me, .I tried so hard not to forget, that I definitely, completely forgot. It was completely past my thought process to get to a computer and by the time I got home everything was closed. I feel really badly about it.

A few things have happend since Tasty Tuesday's party. There was a big get together. Everyone came out, and for some reason I was dragged up on top of a pool table as two local Ticos were dancing around me. What kind of party is this!! hahaha
I was loving life, I'm not gonna lie. I'll have to get some photos of these guys one day.
Tasty Tuesday was definitely NOT tasty lol. A lot of guys were being really inappropriate and not listening to me as I asked them to leave me alone. I was finally so fed up I left everyone without saying goodbye. All of a sudden I get a knock on my door and this guy (can't disclose his name to spare him the embarrassment) was wasted and said "I like you so much Jesse (everyone calls me that here). I go on these rants with him to try and explain how I feel. I just left my boyfriend. I am trying to take time for myself to figure out what I want. I'm only interested in friendship. blah blah blah. He says he gets it, but he clearly doesn't. At least now I know that my words don't mean much to him. I just don't want to be mean, and I won't. He will continue to try because he's persistent, but what he will come to realize, on his own time, is that he will have pushed me away. Beth, Joshua and I all stayed on the top floor. They said he was harmless and didn't mind him being there, so we just relaxed. A few minutes later THIS GUY, was pissing on the door and all over the floor!!! He left immediately saying "sorry jesse, I'm so sorry jesse."
I never had an interest in kissing him or anything before but I DEFINITELY don't after last night!

In the morning I mopped up his mess up with his own t-shirt he left behind, in his drunken fit. Today I'm gonna sleep away my hangover, tan and maybe surf.
Everyone advices me to stay away from locals. They say they are trouble and if you like any of them, just stick to one. It's kind of funny though because that same advice is coming from girls who have mentioned their desires to be with these guys, or who have already explored their options.
Lot's of boy drama here that is for sure. There is too much of it for my liking though. I'm going to San Jose in 2 weeks with Clint to train BJJ. I'll ask one of the girls or Clint if I can leave some of my stuff. I don't miss anyone from home yet but I do think of them so often - the ones I keep in touch with. I miss talking with Samantha though, it's just like we've got too much on our minds to write there isn't enough time.
"I want to publish my journal when I'm back and have a permanent copy and also a mini book of lessons."
F A C T : This entry is really awesome for me to read back because it's the first time I wrote down on paper that I wanted to transform my journals into something more; a book.
Now I am currently uploading these stories onto my site you're on, as we speak, with the hopes of turning it into a book one day! Of course I have to skip over stories for the sake of this website, but who knows, maybe down the road my e-book will have some of the details I've left out here.
