What were 5 things you wish you knew as a senior in high school?
There are quite a few things that I wish I had done in high school, but had I really done those things then I would not have been the person that I am today. Our minds should have clarity, and we must be realistic and yet compassionate towards life in general. One of the foremost things that comes to my mind is - I wish I had concentrated more on being an outdoor person back then. I should have played more outdoor games, gone on trekking and hiking etc. Secondly, I wish I could fare better in mathematics. I just did not give enough time to the subject. Third, I wish I knew the value of time better. Fourth, I wish I knew the beauty of poetry while still in school! And last but not the least, I wish I knew what was going on in the mind of the guy I had a crush on!!!

Are people really more narcissistic than ever before? If so, are social networks and other new media to blame?
I was really drawn by the question raised by Lena..And the inputs by the esteemed members have been enlightening too.. Though technology may not be able to alter human behaviour, it does open up opportunities hitherto unexplored. Not long before our entire leisure time was spent in networking sites and e-mails, etc, people used to have a more outdoor life. Children played outside, made more friends, and in general, behave as they should, ie, appropriate for their age. Now things are altered. People are busier. There is not time to enjoy the finer pleasures of life. And since we lack time to explore, or we think we lack time, we remain content with what comes easy to us. And what else can be better that sites which brings the world to us without we having to move a muscle? We end up talking of ourselves. What we do, what we like, what we want...and so on..And amazingly, we find people who listen to us! We get encouraged, we want to say more..At at some point, we may forget that we are doing nothing else but I, ME , MYSELF in everything we post ! Yes, the social media are designed to lure us. And it is really upto us how much we dive in into it...We are bullied to sell dreams, killing our conscience at times, and we just tend to ignore how much is too much.. And if we are narcissistic , it is not only these portals which are responsible..The will, the intention, the capacity to judge, these all lie within us...And really, it is upto us to decide how we shape ourselves up as human beings...
