One Does Not Simply…Write About Anthropology

My Time as a Graduate Student

About Tina

DSC_0396I am a recently graduated graduate student at the University of West Florida studying Cultural Anthropology. I do consider myself as an independent lover and hater of anthropology, or at times an anthro-theory-snob. But eh, who isn’t.

When it comes down to it, all anthropology is just wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.

I began writing this blog as a way of allowing my friends and family to see what I was doing, working on, and a tool to educate a broader audience through my experiences of graduate school. It just so happens that the beginning of the 2013 Spring Semester that one of my classes focuses on how to present anthropology to the general public through the uses of various social media. So I am designing the blog to reflect upon not only my research, but use it as an education tool to reach out to a broader audience and educate on various subjects on anthropology to anyone who is interested. My goal will be to help educated those who do not know much about anthropology, correct any myths about it, or just find the information I provide either helpful or innovative.

I really don’t know what else to say other than I love traveling and photography, and it is great when both coincide with each other. I am consistently every day trying to work on my photography skills.

My goal after my graduating is to hopefully teach. I am American Red Cross Instructor and I teach Lifeguard Training, CPR, First-Aid, AED, Babysitting Training,  and Water Safety. I am also an Instructor Trainer for Water Safety, meaning I teach individuals how to teach swim lessons of various ages and skill levels. So I have been getting some practice in teaching at some sort of  level, but would like to get more experience teaching in an academia setting.
