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.

Job woes

Well, it has been about 9 days since I was let go from my job. I feel more at peace. I hated that job. I now have another problem-the problem of finding a job with a firing behind me. Honestly, that is the truth, I just want it to be behind me. I have learned some lessons from that job that I can take with me to the future. I don't hate them or wish them ill-I just want them (as they indicated to me) to not fight the unemployment.

I will be working on looking for a job and studying for the GRE more aggressively beginning tomorrow. My days will consist of physical therapy, breakfast, job hunting for 7-8 hrs and winding down with some GRE studying for an hour. I am planning on taking the GRE studying in small "bites". Now to figure out how to pay for it!

Have a peaceful day everyone.

Good to see you are blogging again.
I got your email and replied, but every time I send it, it says your inbox is full and it can't be delivered.

Anyway, great to hear from you via email and blog.

Hang tough! :D
