still haven’t made any progress in my quest to find a job in the anthropology
field, which is my dream. Even though I am working a part time, but hey, it’s
rewarding, and it’s a start and a job, my heart still belongs to anthropology.
I was watchingPrimer Impacto and they were showing in
Yucatan, Mexico, a cave with Mayan pictograph hand prints. They were also
animal bones and various artifacts, like a source for light. My eyes were a
little watery because I wish I was doing something like that.
Today, I also received my charm of a shovel pick and axe excavation
which I won online. It’s to remind me to keep pushing for my dream. Even
though a part of me doesn’t feel like I deserve to wear it until my goal,
another part of me is telling me to wear it because I did earn a degree in
anthropology and I took a field class while in school and I was quite good at
pedestrian surveying. Maybe me winning this charm is a sign that I am meant to
be in the anthropology community, I sure hope so!!!
was talking to one of my friends from school last week and they were telling me
how they were quitting there job that week because of boredom and that Friday
was there last day. He told me of job openings for a company that another
classmate was applying too and he told me I should apply, even though I told him
my background and qualifications in anthropology were limited.Let’s see, no field school, no internship and no volunteer experience.
L He assured me that my school reports
and field class would be fine, it’s all about how you sell yourself.This is true for any job.It is also something I think I
lack and why I would never make a good sales person.He did offer
to help me with my resume and so maybe I’ll take him up on his offer before he
goes off to grad school and look into that company he mentioned.
He’s going to grad school in Denmark in August for underwater
(maritime) archeology, which is what I wanted to do. It’s a 2 year
program, and I am really happy for him and jealous, lol, because that’s what I
want to do, except I want to go to grad school in Mexico, ideally at UNAM (go
Pumas), but U. of Guadalajara would do too.Maybe I should start
saving my money for grad school and/or scuba diving lessons, instead of salsa
lessons and stop buying things I really don’t need online, lol.I
know scuba diving lessons can be expensive, but hey, if it gets me a step closer
to my dream, then I’m all in.Maybe by the time my friend finishes
grad school, I’ll be certified in scuba diving and I can work for him.
Just checked my email and I got an email from PADI Americas, it’s a
sign! (I hope) The closes thing I ever got to scuba diving lessons was when in
the summer of when I was transferring school, there was a free scuba diving
class at a sports store.It was so much fun and I thought I was
finally doing it, you know, becoming the anthropologist that I want to be, since
I was transferring school and was starting to take more classes in anthropology
to actually become an anthropologist.Almost a year after getting
my degree and I am nowhere closer to working in the anthropology world and
leaving my mark. L
