I will be leaving for Costa Rica on Tuesday morning....early. While I am there, I plan to update a journal. BUT, I will be updating with the name tiffcostarica instead of this one, I may continue to post on here when i want to write about personal things, but the other journal will be accessible for parents and family, etc.
On tiffcostarica, I made it so the "friend of" list is not visible. I also made it so all comments are screened. This way, you can comment or add me as a friend without worrying if random people will get linked up into our little livejournal circle.
I have already posted there, so check it out!!!!

I just spent a while looking at classes for Spring. Here is what I HOPE to get:
8:00-9:15 ANTH 3250 (Old World Arch) 74-745
9:30-10:45 ANTH 4070 (Cultural Ecology) 80-025
12:30-1:45 FREN 4010 (adv. comp and conv) 31-003
2:00-3:15 RELI 2004 (Native American) 75-992
3:30-4:45 PSYC 2101 (Psyc of adjust) 47-621
3:30-4:45 WMST 2010 (Intro to WMST) 04-652
These are all on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I could have the other days to work. Yes, I am joining the masses who put all their classes on 2 days. : ) So, we will see what happens when my registration date comes up. I hope all of the classes are still available. I will also be trying to get Honors options for several of them. the actual honors classes didn't fit into my schedule that I was making. But honors options would be good.
Okay, well, off to the next thing on the list!
All I have done in the past few days is say goodbye to people. It's kind of draining, because I really do love all of my friends so much. It is really such a short time that i will be gone when you think about it and how long out lives can be. Four months out of a lifetime. But I will miss you guys a lot. Did I mention I love wine? : ) Lots going on in my mind these days. Lots. Leaving in a few days. What a strange feeling.
So much to say, but so little worth saying sometimes. Feel me, you guys, okay?
I will be transferring a lot of my posting to the new Costa Rica journal soon, which is tiffcostarica Love to everyone always.

Sometime I will post my schedule for this week coming up so everyone knows where to find me if you want to hang out and when I am available. I have to be at the airport at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, September 6th. So, I will be doing a lot of preparing and just spending time with people. That is very important to me.
Sarah/Thuerk and Ryan.....I am coming by to sign papers for Spring with Mr. Butts. But I will call you about that so we can see about hanging out.
Everyone...call me or something. :) Hehehehehe

Life is trying to eat me alive this week, and I think this will continue until I leave on the 6th ... with getting things ready, saying goodbye, and everything else in my head, I am doing pretty well overall.

Someone posted this on a community I am a part of, so I copied it here and hope they don't mind. :) Isn't it beautiful, though?

ACTUALLY, I have more money than I thought for Costa Rica. I had been figuring wrong a little bit. I am still in need of money, but it is not as dire as it was before. Here is the breakdown:
- Already paid: $900
- Already paid: $1600
- Will pay: $1000 by August 15th
- Will pay: $532 by September 4th
- Will pay: $123 for insurance (which includes the $90 and an extra 33 days of coverage)
- My loan check will come in a few weeks after the semester starts, and it will be for $3800
So, there it is. But money is good. Yes.
I wish I liked updating stuff in here about how I feel. Because sometimes I want everyone to know, but I don't want to just post it and leave it at that. I would rather sit down and talk or actually have a dialogue rather than just me writing. But, I feel good. I just feel like I rarely relax and let my guard down sometimes.
So I am not working with Citi Corp. Instead, I am working at Communities Magazine. I have been working for them once a month 3 times now to enter in their inventory. (They have a magazine with listings of all teh new home developments in the Atlanta area. I am the one that types in all the home information, like bedrooms and bathrooms and price and such.) But they decided to fire their new receptionist, and I am going to fill in up until I leave for Costa Rica. I will have the week before I go free though so I can get everything together and spend time with people, etc. But I will be making more money, which is good cuz I am a little behind on that. (Any donations are welcomed and appreciated!!!) Hehehehe
Today is a weird day. I am going to do laundry. Then I am eventually going back to the Square (I met Kayesha there earlier to read and chill) to work at the coffee shop for a few hours on stuff. I don't know what, but it will make me money, which I need. I will just ponder how Cool Beans could market itself better and rearrange some shelves or something. Or clean something that hasn't been cleaned in a long time. Something.
CD making today I believe.

I might have a job for the next month working with Citigroup. That would be amazing! Not that the job is good necessarily, but it would be steady and a lot of money. I have been spending a lot of time in my mind thinking about money and how I know it will all come. It looks like it is coming. Even if this job doesn't work out for some reason, then one will. Good news! I can probably move back into my old apartment with Sarah/Thuerk when I get back from Costa Rica. It turns out that Maggie is moving out at the end of the summer, and then her girlfriend is moving in until the end of Fall semester when she graduates, and then I can move in in January. The great part too is that I have been leaving my bed and dresser there for them to use, as it was left to me from the person before me, so I don't have to move any big items in. Anyway, that makes one less thing to figure out. It's funny that the one thing I have not bothered to stress over and make preparations for is the one thing that has just come to me and been obvious. One should learn something from that.(one=me)
I am working on Cool Beans stuff.....yay for stealing merchandise companies from other coffee shops. Yay for finding good ones in ATHENS. Yay for maybe ordering shirts that are the same style as some in Jittery Joe's. Yay for making progress on this whole marketing thing.
I am me. And I am trying.

I am The Lovers
The Lovers often refers to a relationship that is based on deep love - the strongest force of all. The relationship may not be sexual, although it often is or could be. More generally, the Lovers can represent the attractive force that draws any two entities together in a relationship - whether people, ideas, events, movements or groups.

Okay, enough quizzes. Time to work. I have some Cool Beans stuff to call around for and such. And I need to work on the marketing plan and then maybe some of finding out what goes into a press/media packet.....
Athens was so great last night. More on that later. this weekend will be really fun too -- hopefully at the lake with Squeesha's family. My family is out of town, and it makes me happy to be invited with them. Anyway....bye for now!

Welll, damn it. I was just typing an entry, and I somehow closed the window. It wasn't really even a complete accident because I closed all the boxes on purpose....oops. Oh well. Let me try again. So I am at Cool Beans about to work with that whole marketing thing. I really haven't work that much on it, but i have done just enough to make it seem like I have spent enough time. But really, I just got a lot accomplished and only spent 4 hours so far. I don't want to report my hours until I have more to write down....so, I need to do more. I am trying, but I really just don't know much about what I am doing. But i have made today a productive day so far - work first and then laundry. Now, doing this work, and when I go home I am going to clean the kitchen. (It is really gross...no exageration.)
I had a good night last night meeting up with old high school friends I haven't seen in a long time. We had a good time talking, and we didn't just reminisce either (although we did do a lot of that), we talked about new things and other things. It really told me something about who I surrounded myself with at that time that we can still hang out and have things to say to each other. We may all be in different places doing different things with completely different views than in high school, but there is still an underlying connection that is still there now. True, in 5 more years that may not be the case, but I am enjoying it at the moment. I hope I get to see more of them and maybe reconnect with some others sometime.
Tomorrow is my last day at the Health Department. My temp agency is going to try to get me to be able to stay there, but I don't know if they really need me past tomorrow. It has been a great job though really. Boring at times, but everyone is so freakin' nice. And they are all really appreciative. And, the program is so important that I work for. (I work for the WIC program, if I haven't told you.....it provides food vouchers for pregnant women, infants, and yound children for low income families.) But I was thinking how glad I am that I am a liberal who believes in the public paying taxes to provide these somewhat Socialist programs. But these babies would be terribly malnourished if it weren't for WIC, and I am glad to be involved in any capacity. I went to lunch today at this little Mexican place by my house. It is the only restaurant anywhere near, and I have been wanting to stop there for years. (It started as a little shack you coudl only walk up to for tacos or something, and now it is a real restaurant...very cool.) But 2 of my Spanish-speaking coworkers were there, so instead of taking food home, I ate with them. And it turned out to be lucky that they were there, because no one there spoke English at all....so they had to order for me. Hehehe. I think I coudl handle it next time though -- and it was really good, so we shoudl all go sometime, okay? It was a good experience. :) And cheap and authentic. (Beto's.....hehehehehehehe)
This working during the day thing is great, but it makes me sad that I can't stay up late sometimes. I hate being tired just when everyone else gets their energy. It makes me sad to have to go home to sleep instead of hanging out. But I like having evenings to get things done, and I do still get to hang out with people...just not as late as I would like. And I am realizing that driving to work from far away is not that bad, so I am more willing to do it now. But anyway....hanging out with friends=good.
So, since my last day is Thursday, I am off to Athens on Thursday after work to stay the night. Hopefully Kayesha is coming too. Don't know yet. But there is an AIDS Athens benefit at The Ritz (next to Tasty World), and my trapezey people are performing. I am not, but my friends there are. But I am excited cuz I have not been back there since the end of school. There is still some of my stuff at my apartment that I thought I woudl get back within a few weeks. Clearly, that didn't happen. But I need to see people too. And that whole Athens vibe that we all love....cravin' it a little. Anyone is more than welcome to come - it is not exclusive. You might end up sleeping on a floor if you come, but it will be fun. And as long as you're willing to kind of come with me to get coffee with friends or whatever....but they are nice. Call me to talk about it, okay? I can promise some Taco Stand. And a cool tree or two.
Okay, it is seriously time to work. But I thought it was about that time to update......bye for now. Miss you people/person.....

You are funky, outdoorsy, and down to earth.
While you may not be a total hippie...
You're definitely one of the most free spirited people around.
You are very impulsive - every day is a new adventure.
However, you do put some thought behind all your actions.
Still, you do tend to shock and offend people from time to time!
I saw this icon on someone's journal on a list I am on and thought I woudl set it as mine in case anyone liked it. O wasn't sure how I felt about it though. It is sort of creepy. It looks more like he is trying to lick food off his mouth or something instead of being a cool movement. But I thought I would at least expose you people (such as Kayesha, Sara, Adam, Sarah/Thuerk) to the little image. I will change it tomorrow or something though -- since it is a desication LJ icon to others. :)
Tired and hot right now. Shower = good. Nappy = good. Working for Cool Beans marketing stuff later = good. Chilling = good.
