Third Culture Kid

I recently became aware that there is a label for people like me.  In fact they say it is a whole culture that I belong to.  I grew up as the son of an expatriate.  And although I haven’t met many other people in this category, it turns out that my views on the world and life in general are indeed pretty normal, given the circumstances under which I was raised.  Read this Wikipedia article for the full story.  It’s like both the expatriate and the third culture kid articles have read my mind.  Notice, also, that both articles mention that people under these circumstances are more likely to keep social blogs

Damn dude you are so social 😉 It’s kind of cool that now you have found an excuse for all sorts of crazy things you might plan to do: “I can’t help it, I am a third culture kid!”

Wanna go get beer soon? I believe third culture kids are allowed to do that even in the US 😉

Yeah, I seriously love this. I use it daily now:
“Sorry I’m late to class/work… I’m a third culture kid…”

Sure, beer sounds good right about now. It’s definitely approaching Beer:30.
