Introduction Post

Hello! I am a student at UAF who's kind of in a transitional phase right now, going from physics to chemistry. This course fulfills one of my GER credits and my girlfriend (a geography major) highly recommended this course from her personal experience with it. As you can probably tell I have a background in the physical sciences, so most of the stuff I'll be learning in this course is entirely new and unfamiliar to me! I watch some loosely geography-related YouTube channels such as Real Life Lore and Wendover Productions, but that's about the extent of my geography knowledge.

My three map locations are as follows:

Birthplace: Torrance, CA

Current residence: Fairbanks, AK

Place I wish to travel to: Tokyo, Japan (and also older towns away from the big city)
