As this is also my first blog post, I would like to start by introducing myself! :) My name is Samuelu (I go by Sammy) and I am a first year Psychology major. I was born in 2001 (the Year of the Snake) and raised in the beautiful city of Oceanside, California (the northern area of San Diego County).

Hello! Like others, I wanted to take some time to introduce myself but also share an anecdote and touch upon previous discussions in class.
It has been great meeting everyone and hearing all of your perspectives on the current situation and how it relates to food. I wanted to introduce myself as this is my first post! I'm Justine and I am a 3rd year Chemical Engineering major with a Biomolecular concentration. I have grown up in the Los Angeles county, but my family is originally from the Philippines. I joined this class because I have a passion for food and I really love cooking as a hobby. I hope to continue to learn more about you all and talk more about food in this class!
In discussing the Rabbit further, I would like to dive into a few different aspects discussed in class, including a rabbit’s relation to food, the pandemic, and the tiger that got tested for COVID-19, and how this communicates our relation to animals.
During our class on the 14th, two main topics stood out to me. First, was the discussion surrounding how westerners have biases about what is “normal” both in terms of food and medicine. I also found the discussion about the Tiger to be very interesting.
