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.

good posts coming soon!

I have some really great ideas for future posts and I hope all of my readers will stay tuned for them after this semester is done.

On a good update note, the professor who teaches Human Origins (the only "missing" class I need to graduate aside from the one I registered for) emailed me and said she is teaching the class it just is not posted yet. Ok, cool beans. I need that one and History of Anthropological Thought. I have that one in my "cart" already.

Paper two is finished. I will make that one a blog post with pics and all. I compared two ethnographies. One was about Bulgarian tourism and one on Hawaii.

Hope to be back once my 20 page paper is done!

Tonight I made a channa curry with veggies and put it in a pie crust pocket. It was awesome!!
