I could still, but have decided not to keep the promise. I’ll consider it a sacrafice, “giving up something good for something better”. A few weeks ago in a random study session I came across the field of Cultural Anthropology

“Cultural anthropology is the study of peoples, their beliefs, practices, values, ideas, languages, technologies, economies and other domains of social and cognitive organization. Anthropology comes from the Greek, literally the study of the human. As such, we overlap with history, sociology, psychology, political science, literature, documentary studies, and other fields.” 

It sparked my interest and I read and read, read and read some more and then peeked into a university studies in Amsterdam.

It’s there, next enrollment in September, takes 3 years and it’s primarily in English. I wasn’t so much planning to go back to school, but this field seems to bring together all my interests. I could study all regional and subcultures, Hip Hop culture, symbolism, ancient history, language, religion and lifestyle, Asian art and peace and so much more.

I want this! To get in though, I have to succeed in written tests on Math, History, Dutch and English. The tests are simply to prove your IQ basically, ensure University level and the material is extensive and honestly, dead boring. Now arrived safe and sound in Edmonton, I got started, I’m on this. Meaning I might actually get back to class in 2014?

So that, studying for my University application, webdesigning on the side and a lot of Tika grind and progress and enjoyable exploring in the caNadian lands. A change of direction. New year, new moon, new missions.

Bless you, to a prosperous and happy 2014! Whether in school or self study, always push yourself to gain new knowledge, allowing you everytime to see the world through new eyes.

Om Shanti
