Ok ok ok, I know I haven’t been around…

Yes, I know that I haven’t posted to my blog in a REALLY long time. Sorry about that. I’ve been so incredibly busy with school and family stuff lately that, to be completely honest, I kind of forgot about my blog. Well, let me catch you up on what I have been up to.

1. I’m going back to Santa Cruz! I attended UCSC in 2006-2008 and then decided to come home for a while (When I say that, what I really mean is that I got terribly homesick and ended up coming home every weekend so it wasn’t a far cry from being at home full time anyway).  After being at Canada college for the last 3 years, I have finally realized what I want to major in (This is a BIG step for me, I went from being pre-med, to environmental studies, to literature, to nursing and finally to my actual major). I plan on getting an anthropology degree, which is very exciting. I took a lot of classes with the anthropology professor at Canada and I found that I truly loved the subject. It’s like combining the best things about history and science all into one discipline! I have no clue what I’m going to do with an anthro degree, but I am very excited about my future! As for going back to UCSC, I am really excited. I will be going back in the winter as a full time student and I fully intend on staying there this time! 2013 graduation here I come!

2. I’ve been working a LOT! Even though this weather has been less than desirable for biking lately (it’s raining right now), we have been selling a lot of great bikes to some really nice people. Just recently I sold 2 Madone 5.2 WSDs to 2 women who I’m sure are going to ride them a ton and have lots o’ fun! Also, I’ve seen that a fair amount of women (and even guys in some cases) come into the shop feeling like it’s not possible to look and feel good in cycling clothes. Yes, I know all of the guys at the shop feel more comfortable in spandex than cotton but cycling clothes can really be unattractive sometimes! I love it when I can pick out clothes for people to ride in that they come out of the fitting room smiling because they do look awesome! I spend a lot of time picking out the apparel that we sell and it makes me really glad to see people happy with the way they look in it. :)

3. In my digital imaging class our final project has been to create a webpage or redesign an already existing one. Can you guess which one I chose to redesign? Here is the almost finished product. My dad probably won’t be going over to my new design, but I’d love to here what you think! :)

The new CR website?

    I think the sample site for Chain Reaction looks great! I have tired to call you a couple times to get your feed back on the P1 space, hope you like it. We are coming back out in a couple of weeks to help again.

    Hi Becky,

    Just so you know, I’ve worked at a couple of local research institutes that love anthropologists! In education research we need people who can watch what’s going on in a classroom and see the dynamics through multiple lenses. I’ve also known anthropologists who do their work inside corporations – one doesn’t need to travel to the other side of the world to try to understand cultures! UC Santa Cruz’s education school, in fact, is heavily tilted toward cultural/anthropological approaches to studying education – you might want to check them out.
