Prompt option one: At first when i read this weeks blog post i didn’t think that there were too many things that i do on a daily basis that are influenced or rooted in another culture. However as i sat down and thought about it i was surprised to realize that i take part in tons of activities that are culturally adopted. To begin with the most obvious cultural adoption i see in my daily life would be the type of music i listen to. I am a rap and hip-hop fan which is rooted in the African American culture, one that is different than mine. Another cultural adoption i see in my daily life would be the type of food that i eat, my most favorite foods come from the Italian culture and the southern American culture, both different from my culture. Also one of my most favorite snacks comes from the Asian culture. It is a more authentic version of ramen noodles that comes with three flavor packets and can only be bought at an Asian super market. I was introduced to this snack by my friend who is Vietnamese. Another cultural adoption that comes to mind from my own life would be style and in particular hair styles. Me (and most of American’s) get most of our hairstyle ideas and inspirations from European culture. I was informed from my cousin who is a cosmetologist that if i wanted to find the next trend in haircuts that i need to research what the Europeans are doing. Also i have recently considered getting corn rows another type of hairstyle that would be adopted from the African American culture. I think that cultures move across boarder through the media mostly the internet and T.V. However i think that it is also a by product from people who travel and experience different cultures first hand.
