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.

I am ....

...the new VP of the Central Florida Anthropological Society...

I really do accomplish things being on the board. This is not just something to put on my resume. :)

Feeling better about my school...so relaxed now regarding my studies. Spring is my time to finish. On to explore grad school opportunities and be free from academia for a while (one year).
