Beginning of an Era

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.
