Welcome. :)

Welcome to my blog. Here I share my successes and failures along my journey to becoming an anthropologist. My most prominent interest anthropologically are the new approaches to handing food security/healthy eating in the US, particularly in urban "food deserts". I enjoy the Anthropology of Tourism as well; combining food and tourism has scholarly promise. My other interests which have converted into anthropological hobbies of sorts include converts to Islam, diaspora of Muslims, and MENA in general. I also have some interest in historical archaeology.

I welcome comments, discussion and even respectful debating. I will however keep discussions to a respectable level. I reserve the right to ban anyone from this forum.

Started once again!!

I have started once again blogging. I have jettisoned all my old ones and will use this one as a way to vent, talk about my college career. Speaking of careers, can college be a career? :) Not very lucrative I know. Actually a few of my goals are to buy a home somewhere UNincorporated AND is zoned for a reptile sanctuary. Yup folks. I love them all with scales.

There have been some women who have inspired this blog renaissance. of mine. They are all bloggers.


and last but not least....


Alright, those are my only 5 regular blogs I read. I am sure there are more than that with value.

About school...I graduated from http://www.valencia.edu/ with my A.A this past year. I am now at http://www.ucf.edu/। I like it and I don't. My focus is culture with a minor in MidEast Studies. I am not keen on one of my classes. His classes are umm....non inspiring. I love my other classes however. Taking People's of the World, Cultural Anthropology, Sex, Gender and Culture and The Human Species. I was signed up for Islamic Thought and Culture but dropped it. The Professor said he was from heaven. That is true but seriously, I had no time for it. Parking is a BEAR at my school so a 1:30 pm class is just not going to happen unless I get down there by 7:00 am. lol

Well, that's all for now folks. I am back to the study grindstone. I may complain about my apartment complex tomorrow. lol I have current issues!!

Peace out...
