I have spent a lot of time praising the internet but only participating in half measures. I have been a lurker, a youtube addict, and occasionally an anonymous commentor. So today I have decided to take the full measure and create a real presence digitally (or as real as the internet can be).
I’ve applied to graduate school for anthropology twice and been rejected twice, which hurt. But I had my cry, and then I decided if I couldn’t go to school to learn how to be an applied anthropologist, I’d learn how to do it myself. Right now I’m fighting for the Huaorani to maintain their territorial rights. I am going to use my skills as an anthropologist to do it.
