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.

What color is YOUR parachute?

I still don't know what my color is. I am learning as I go and one of the tools I am using to learn more about what job/career fit is right for me. A book (10 million copies sold over the years mind you!) titled 'What Color is Your Parachute?' by Richard Bolles. My father, a retired recruiter and resume writer/career counselor has been recommending this to all his clients to have as a handy dandy reference. I decided to buy the 2009 edition the other day so I can do the work required to figure myself out and what I would be good at. I need to make a decent salary considering I will be the (virtually) only bread winner in this marriage. That is a whole other post in itself that I may, if I am up to it actually speak about.

Anyhow, get this book if your having job hunting issues or career issues. Its fabulous!
