Quick update: where the heck have I been?

So where the heck have I been the past 3 months?! Not online, obviously.

I’ve been breaking up with the boyfriend, moving (three times), and starting a new job. BUSY. I’ve been too busy and emotionally exhausted, but now I’m settled, feeling good, and back online.

I’m still in Costa Rica – I love it here!

I will be writing about my moving experiences. I am now very familiar with several different areas in the Central Valley in terms of living advantages / disadvantages. I had to move around a few times before I found my perfect situation. I’m now extremely happy with my new home and so is Mocha!

New job. I’ll be writing about that, too. I decided to try my hand at teaching English in Costa Rica for 3 reasons: 1. for a new experience, 2. to see what all the hype was about, and 3. to meet some new people.

That’s my quick update. Here’s a photo of another beautiful sunset, this time it’s from the balcony of my new home in Costa Rica :)

    What? No drama? And you call yourself a blogger? Give us the drama and all the TMI.
    Or not. We faithful are standing by.
    (I’m sorry you had the drama, but glad you are still in CR and taking new challenges.)

    • Erin Morris says

      I’d have to start a new blog with all the drama. There is that much material believe it or not.
      hmmm maybe I will…

    Sorry to hear that Erin, that’s rough.
    But good to see you’re back. English teaching is fun! I did that in Prague a few years ago.
    Btw, my ship will be in Puerto Limon on 17th Dec. Is that anywhere close to you??

    Hi Erin,
    I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your blog. We’re planning a trip to CR for the very first time in January, and your blog really has been the best (and most trustworthy!) source for information out there. I really appreciate your frank approach, tips, and your positivity! :)
    I’m sorry to hear about the break-up. Just wanted to let you know that your blog has positively impacted our lives, and we really appreciate what you do! You seem a very nice person, and a strong and adventurous one, too! I hope 2012 brings you many happy new adventures!
    All the best to you, Erin-in-Costa-Rica!
    Hayley from Canada :)

      Thank you so much for your kind words Hayley! I’m really looking forward to 2012, I think it’s going to be a great year. I hope you enjoy your trip to Costa Rica!

    Love the photo and excited to hear about your new job in CR- teaching abroad is always something I’ve considered, so I can’t wait to hear how your experience goes.

    • Erin Morris says

      Thanks :) I really can’t imagine leaving Costa Rica right now. It’s just too beautiful and I’m having too much fun!!

    So sorry to hear about the break up- that’s always tough to go through. It sounds as though it was for the best, as it usually is in those situations! I’m interested to hear how you made the transition to teaching English so quickly and obtain a job so fast? That’s great! It’s my dream to teach in Costa Rica. Did you take a course first? I look forward to your upcoming posts!


    • Erin Morris says

      I got a job teaching English at an institute (without any experience). I liked it so I took a TESOL course, then transferred to teaching at a University. I definitely recommend taking a course!

    It would be very helpful to hear your views of the three areas in the Central Valley you’ve experienced in depth.

    • Erin Morris says

      I’ve experienced more than 3 now… what type of information are you looking for? I could write books about each area of the Central Valley. They all seem similar at first, but are very different after you get to know them.
