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.

Book sale

For all those who know me, know I love books. So much that I will use my last dollar on a book. Today, my DH (dear husband) and I went to a Friends of the Library Book Sale. They were my friend today! :) I did not find too many novels but found an awesome dictionary, a writers guide, some cookbooks and books for the kids (my nephew and my brand new niece). My husband found some sci-fi. Not my cup-o-tea! :) I found a book called The Cultural Literacy Guide (or something like that). I didn't buy it though. Good thing we managed a run to the car after the sale. There was a art festival (where we bought nothing!) next door. We hung out, and I made myself sick on funnel cake. Goodness, I ate almost the whole thing. Do NOT send me nutritional info on that. I am not interested. :) It's a tradition after the book sale.

School is going well. I am still an 'A' student. I still have one class I am not liking but that is par for the course at some point in school.......

I wikll write some more posts that have some depth to them. I am really busy these days (like the rest of the world huh??).
peace out, anthrogeek10
