I'm two weeks into summer school: Spanish 101 every night of the week, and an internet course on Urban Politics. It seems that all I do is get up, go to work, go to class, go home, go to bed.
I'm taking Spanish 102 in the second 5-week session, so I will complete 11 total credit hours before the beginning of the Fall semester.
Once the Fall comes, I'll be busier than ever:
- Spanish 201 at Rio Salado college (it's an Internet course)
- Graduate course in Anthropology at the University of Arizona in Tucson
I'm going to be taking a Mesoamerican Archaeology course from Dr. Takeshi Inomata. He is a Mayanist (he's currently doing fieldwork in Guatemala), and I think I would enjoy working with him.
Before the Fall semester is over, I will need to submit all application materials to the various graduate schools in which I'm interested. I plan to apply to the following (presented in alphabetical order, NOT the order of preference):
- Arizona State University (Ph.D. program in Anthropology)
- Northern Arizona University (M.A. program in Anthropology)
- University of Arizona (M.A. program in Anthropology)
- University of North Texas (Online M.A. program in Applied Anthropology)
I still need to finish up my B.A., and I'll need to take the following courses to make this happen:
- Spanish 202 (at ASU)
- One more Physical Anthropology course
The big mystery, of course, is where will I be in the Fall of 2009?
