[Lynn] What's the birthday you remember most?
00:03
The birthday I remember most, um...
00:15
I think probably when I turned 18.
00:18
I think we were in Peru at that point,
00:22
I had graduated high school early and I was traveling
00:25
with this group of girls in this little school.
00:28
And we were staying at this little youth hostel
00:30
and I was kind of homesick, we'd been away
00:32
for two months at that point.
00:34
And I was also kind of sad about turning 18.
00:37
I don't know why, it's so young, but I felt like it
00:40
was, you know, it's a significant birthday to turn 18.
00:43
And so we were at this youth hostel with all these girls
00:45
that I had become really close friends with,
00:47
and they got me a pinata.
00:50
It was silly, but I just remember that birthday.
