In a sec I will post my favorite cook books. I'm good at research, very good infact, but want to work with my body and hands. I'm not born to be an academic but love knowledge. I can cook senegalese, chinese, japanese, trinidadian, rep of georgia, Swiss nut and seed cakes, Austrian pastries, nigerian, somalian, Indonesian food. In the end I'm freaking out. Not only am I 35, but my anthropology grades are bad, I havnt been with a woman in 11 years. I was first an art student, then I became schizophrenic, then I switched to anthropology, was fascinated, purchased 500 anthropology, German philosophy, African and caribbean lit books. I absolutely dream of Caribbean and African women and secret occult societies. Mods can move this to right forum, I'm pretty lost and need help.
