Sorry to barge in unannounced, What area of anthro/linguistics are you interested in?

THAT SOUNDS SUPER INTERESTING LIKE WHOA I WOULD READ THAT

And like, my university is keeping anthropology as a whole — I go to Arizona State University, and you can’t take two steps in this place without being beaten with the fact that Don Johanson works here :| so we’ve got a strong archaeology/physical anthropology program, as well as pretty well thriving cultural anthropology, but sociolinguistics is no longer a required class and there was only one section of it this semester. I’m graduating in a few weeks so it’s kinda lame that it was my last chance, but I did a semester abroad and took a linguistics class while I was there so that was kind of cool.

I think mostly my anthropology degree will supplement my creative writing degree (double major woo!) because I feel like it’s given me really interesting insight into humans and how they interact and plenty of fodder for creative nonfiction as well as fiction. I’d really like to be an LGBT writer and focus on the stories of LGBT people, both genuine and fictionalised. Right now I’ve got a pending application to graduate school at Trinity College Dublin (where I did my semester abroad) but failing that it’s work visa time. 

this is completely disregarding the fact that I picked up an anthropology degree because I was bored what even is my life

"what even is my life"? that’s hella, man.

My dad did his master’s at ASU. I was unaware they had a decent anthropology program (c’est la vi). I find it kinda funny you would say that about your career, because I used to write all the time as a kid, and would try to apply everything from the motion of a sine wave to frog dissection to Chaucer’s Canterbury style. But writing was a hobby. Anthropology will certainly help your writing career. I’ve read many articles saying that writing/editing is one of the professions anthropologists often go into.

Personally, I’m going to a small local school in PA. I hope to do my Ph.D. at University of California, San Diego in cognitive anthropology (a branch of cognitive science) studying how our language affects our culture affects our learning, memory, and thought.

Working and going to school in Dublin sounds really fun.

Barging in unannounced is always welcome! I’m particularly interested in sociolinguistics, though I don’t have much experience in it because my university decided it was a great subject to phase out. But my anthro interests are kind of all over the map — I’m really interested in physical anthropology and human evolution (Ardipithecus, Australopithecus, etc etc), as well as cultural anthropology. I’m particularly fascinated by east Asian culture and literature, as well as Mexico/borderlands anthropology and Celtic regions. I’m kind of a hodgepodge of interests, which works well because my focus is actually in creative writing, so having broad interest areas is great supplementary material for that stuff. c: I hope that’s a helpful answer!

EDIT. As an afterthought, I’ve also got a growing interest in LGBT subcultures and how applied anthropology can get involved, though it’s nothing super formal yet.

Coupled with the time you’ve already spent there, I really hope you get in ^_^

I’ve known the taste of fire
sharp and heavy in my mouth
curling through the spaces between my thoughts
until what was dark is now bright
     blinding
     sparking

and in my lungs it lives
singing strange songs in stranger tongues
burning my throat with richest ecstasy
almost cold in its piercing
     ringing
     crying

until it fills my very marrow
my incineration scattered wide
to galaxies I never knew resided here
before stardust caught me, waking
     breathing
     transcending

truly
you will never know stardust
unless it settles, coppery, on your tongue
crackling as it fades you out
so much white-noise in lieu of lightning

Can we talk about how, after Hael said they would be one, Cas said, “you’re going to posses me.”

Not “this vessel.”

Me.

Cas is the vessel, the vessel is Cas.

Cas is all alone in there.

Jimmy Novak's Pretty Supernatural Himself →

Supernatural tried to show Jimmy Novak as this normal, average, devout man, but there’s a lot of stuff that begs to differ, honestly.

For one, Jimmy can understand Enochian. And gaze upon Cas’ true form without his eyes burning into nothingness. Maybe because it’s just Cas talking to him and…

Technically it was Castiel protecting him from the boiling water (it was a test of how devout he was). However, I find the fact that he actually did it still pretty badass and I agree with this 100%.

That does make a lot of sense. I still think Jimmy’s a freaking Wonderman for being able to understand enochian and gaze at Cas’ true form without going blind. XD

Sociolinguistics, huh? I am now forming a study plan for mapping the change of LGBT terminologies over time and how that has impacted both the subculture and society as a whole, thank you.

That stinks =/ That is apparently the trend at the majority of universities - phasing out anthropological and social sciences. My school just got a new forensic/physical anthropologist. They’re going to create an actual MAJOR for it. Here’s to me who is graduating next semester <_<  If you’re interested, I could fax you my notes (and by fax I mean email…)

One of the things that drew me to anthro was their ability to be all over the board, because one cannot consider a cultural event as an isolated incident, ne? Applied anthro is so underrated, good on ya, mate. What do you think you’re gonna do with your degree when you graduate?

Story goes that this entity is the most evil known out there and it seems to seek people of all ages that do not reblog this. The name non-tumblr users have already been killed and you’re next.

That is, if you reblog this, he’ll let you live. Now, do it. My friend Katy didn’t know how to reblog and within the hour, she died. I warned her but she didn’t

ok tumblr srsly i fucking hate you but that fucking picture ok i’ll reblog this

fuckfuckfuckfuck

this is just so i can sleep alright tonight…

this looks like it’s from something but i can’t remember

It okay I have that safety cat that protects me from stuff like this.

Did you just turn Tumblr into an rpg game? XD

writing is hardman. I used to find it so easy and now it can take me weeks or even months just to motivate myself to write. It’s not that I have no ideas, it’s just that the words never flow~

It always help me to wake up and the first thing to do - every day - is to just write for one hour. Before you check your email or do your homework. Worth a try, perhaps? This shit happens to me all the time, but having an hour every morning does the trick for me!!

That’s a very good suggestion, actually! I wouldn’t be able to do it everyday when uni’s on, but on my days off it’s certainly worth a try. I usually spend the first 1-2 hours in the morning just tumblring and I always regret it ha…

Thank you!! I’ll totally try this!

Hmmm, yes I don’t do it every day either, but on free days - definitely! Also, I forgot to mention that I actually got this idea from the wonderful Felicia Day. Absolutely worth checking out! :)

I was looking up something totally unrelated and as fate would have it stumbled across something relevant from a book called The Owner’s Manual for the Brain on Writer’s Block.

"The principle of focused attention applies to the common problem of "writer’s block" - the  experience of wanting to write but failing to come up with the requisite words.

Albert Joseph…advises the would-be writer that this inability to get words to flow can be attributed to the attempt to do two things at once - namely, to determine both the how and the what [simultaneously]. The whatis the content - facts, concepts, and stories - while the howis the style - word choice, sentence structure, and point of view. Joseph argues that the brain is trying to do two things at once, similar to listening to the radio and trying to read a book. Joseph suggests that first establishing the whatwill remedy the problem.”

                                                   - p. 585, second edition

Some suggestions they give are: (p. 585)

  1. make a list of all the subjects you want to cover
  2. sequence the items (using outline techniques such as mind mapping)

The following may improve mood, which will release positive endorphins to the area of your brain associated with writing: (p. 586)

  • try writing letters, a journal, biographies, etc
  • try talking to a friend, family, child, stranger, etc

Good luck queernatural =D
