Hello everyone and welcome to my blog 20s in America. I've decided to revamp this blog, originally under the title Philly Soullounge, into something more appropriate for my current interests. I began my previous blog in 2007, but never kept with it, so it was indeed time for a change. This blog will pick off from where I left off, with my interest in music, however I plan to focus more on my interactions with various areas, societies, places, and therefore cultures. I will focus primarily on the Philadelphia region, but as I travel a good amount, I will also blog on my past and present experiences wherever I've been during my roaring 20s.
A little bit about me:
I am from Philadelphia and am embarking on my senior year at Haverford College (Haverford, PA). I am a Classical Culture and Society major and Archaeology minor (at Bryn Mawr College). I am a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow and I am working towards becoming a professor in the field of Archaeology. I have traveled extensively in the first year of my 20s, interacted with a multitude of people from various backgrounds, found little nuggets of cultural bliss, and discovered many things that have greatly impacted my overall development as a person. I therefore found it necessary to put down on paper, or I suppose the internet, my experiences as they happen, not only keeping notes for myself, but to share the many people, places, and things that I myself enjoyed.
I describe my 20s as roaring as both a play on the 1920s in America, but also as a testament to the overall versatility and craziness (whether good or bad) I expect the next decade of my life to be. I hope you have as much fun reading this as I have recounting my experiences and writing this.
I hope you all enjoy a lil' taste of my journey through adulthood.
