After a VERY Long Hiatus...

Hello All!

I am SOOOOOO sorry that I have not blogged since the ice age. Oberlin can get a bit hectic sometimes and this has been my busiest semester yet. Freshman year was a challenge, but sophomore year is a whole different ball game. There have been some high and some low points, but overall, I am happy about how everything has turned out. I've solidified my majors (African American Studies and Gender/Sexuality/Feminist Studies), gotten my summer plans together, and chopped off ALL of my hair!

I will be in Oberlin this summer working on my Mellon-Mays undergraduate research project. I will be focusing on African American women in film. It's a bit different from my original path to law school, but you can never go wrong with a research fellowship! Also, I was recently hired as an RA in Baldwin (the women and transgender collective on campus) and I am having a great time. I love the house, the residents and I was just offered a position for next year (so if there are any first years who plan to live here, I will be your RA in the fall).

So...I'm back! Feel free to stop by more often and say hi!
