During my 5 week stay in Costa Rica I spent one weekend doing completely nothing. I didn’t have an excursion to go on and all of my house mates were out on various trips. From Saturday to Sunday I planned to study for my upcoming exam and quiz. I can confidently say that this barely happened. I found myself studying on and off out of complete boredum. However I did get some benefit out of this experience. I was able to clean up my computer and walk to the plaza near my house to get food and ice cream. My mama Tica also treated me to a wonderful Chinese restaurant.
Lesson learned: using a weekend to relax and study isn’t a bad idea necessarily.
