@BethroTull I am in Costa Rica for the summer! Manuel Antonio National Park (Puntarenas) is a little crowded and tourist-y, but is surrounded by restaurants and hostels and hotels. The park has lots of trails, iguanas, capuchin monkeys, raccoons (unfortunately), and four beaches within it. While I am not a beach expert, I have rarely felt so blissed out as I did when bobbing in the waves on Manuel Antonio's main beach - very swimmer friendly.

I have yet to get to Guanacaste but I have heard that you really can't go wrong with any of the beaches there. Nosara is known for its yoga teacher training center and general beauty.

Be prepared for the humidity and torrential rain! It doesn't rain constantly during the wet season, but when it rains (in the afternoons) it certainly does pour.

On Let's Talk a Bit About the Woman Who Regrets Her Kids

@Alli525 also worth noting that she didn't write this, it's been processed by the daily mail article generator, so anything we think we can glean about her from its robotic tone is probably not that illuminating. i'd be surprised if she had any editorial input, really.

the simple fact that she chose to put her name and face, her kids' names and faces, to this publication, though, probably speaks volumes about her character.

@Shayna I'm not sure where you're looking but my first advice is to not pay too much attention to the work commitment requirements. If an employer is requesting 90 days, and you're only available for 80, or 60, apply anyway. Just don't mention it in your cover letter. Scheduling is usually the last thing to address in internship/employment situations. THAT SAID, I actually DO know of a nonprofit in Boston (my former employer) that hires interns for short- or long-term, and PAYS them (such a rarity in nonprofit world). Tasks vary from the administrative, to the marketing/publicity-skewed, to writing/drafting, and social media. Email me if you'd be interested: claire [dot] gunner [at] gmail.
