My Favorite Classes


In both high school and in university, my favorite classes were my anthropology classes. In my senior year in high school, I took an elective called Introduction to Anthropology where I learned about my hero, Margaret Mead, and began to learn about the lives of other peoples of the world. I was hooked. I could look into other’s cultures and seem how we are the same but different in how we solve our problems.

When I went to university, all my electives were anthropology courses. I took all that I could; I think I took everyone that was offered. I had a passion for understanding the cultures of other peoples and was fortunate enough to have great teachers both in high school and in university who taught these courses and made them come to life. I even enjoyed doing the papers required for the classes (anthropology requires a lot of research papers, note to students who would take these classes), but I didn;t care because they were all part of my sociology major and I learned so much from these assignments.

Because of these classes, I have developed a lift-long interest in the cultures of the world and I feel I have become a better person for learning about and trying to understand why other cultures so what they do.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
