Anthropology & me

Anthropology has eaten my brain. Today I was sitting in urgent care, absolutely miserable, and I started to wonder about the gender/power dynamics at the office. The doctor was male, but all the nurses and reception staff were female. The same thing struck me the last time I was in urgent care. This might happen to other people, too, but I imagine most people don't start constructing a plan for fieldwork while they're waiting to hear back on their urine sample.
