I have been wonderfully spoiled by all the places I have lived. There are little facets in each of the different countries that I wholly adore, and I always wonder if I can find a single place in the world that has all of these benefits.
Why did I feel disconnected from the collective American experience? Why wasn’t I forging stronger ties with my American peers? It wasn’t until I watched “Neither Here Nor There” that I was able to make better sense of this strange quarter-life cultural crisis.
In the last two years of teaching, I’ve often found myself wondering what could I possibly offer in the realm of education, to a classroom, to one student. How do I speak to each unique experience when I am only one person living one life?
