Graduate, get a job, continue travelling and meeting new people
I'm a student at Temple University in Philadelphia, originally from Lancaster. I really want to see as much of the world as I can while I'm still young and able to sleep anywhere and eat anything.
I think that Couchsurfing gives travelers a much more authentic and interesting experience than simply going to a city and buying a hotel room and a guide book. People are the origin of culture, and so I believe that people are far more important than any place could be.
To quote Gene Wilder, "Anything you want to, do it..."
Pensive inaction may lead to a great decision eventually, but fortune favors the bold! Learn from your mistakes and from those around you, and learn as you go.
