We were discussing cultural differences today and I asked a friend today if they had high school reunions in Greece (they do, but only after they started seeing them in American TV shows and movies.) I couldn't help but reminisce about my teenage years and how smart I thought I was, I really thought I had things figured out. I had a plan for my life - and boy am I glad I was wrong. I didn't know enough then to even imagine some of the experiences I've had since.

Bono and the guys got it right:

The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now

City of Blinding Lights

Here I am, 15 years out of high school and my life plan extends to the end of May when I leave Delhi and have no idea where I'll go next. My 18 year old self couldn't handle the uncertainty, it's a good thing I don't know enough anymore to worry.
