Two Sticks of Butter Went Into the Turkey
November 25, 2011
Here's to Thanksgiving exploits and a belated summary of fall break adventures.
Snatches of a Conversation, I
October 18, 2011
A rather broken transcript of the open conversation portion of Salman Rushdie's visit.

October 18, 2011
The continuation of the transcript, covering the convocation.

My schedule in summary - which is more or less tacit apology for not blogging sooner, or more often.

To the Class of 2015: a list of minor and not-so-minor regrets I have that I hope you won't. (It's really not that bad, and you'll survive perfectly well even if you completely ignore this list.) Love, Christine.
Oberlin Summer Research Institute

Why am I back in Oberlin? Because it's fun to feed leftover tater tots to the albino squirrels.

There was an impressively multilingual pool of students, faculty, and visitors in King 106 last Thursday, for those who missed the amazing translation symposium. And if you did, come next year!
What Is Apparently the Buckeye State?
April 4, 2011
I tried on the chocolatier's life for size over break, and decided the scholar's life suited me better. Not that it wasn't fun.
Lost In Translation
February 27, 2011
There are themed residence halls and themed special meals...now introducing themed semesters!
The Heart Collector

"When did you come home?" she asked. "When I say home I mean back to Oberlin." And I thought, yes, it is in fact home.

Looking back on a winter filled with books and histories, I think the award for creepiest anecdote goes to Charles de Lint, and his story of a creature who lived in refrigerators and sucked the yolk out of eggs. If the human in residence then refused to buy any more eggs, the creature would move out of the fridge and on to the vitreous fluid in said human's eyeballs. Good times.
Winter Term Check-in

新年快樂！ [Happy New Year!]
Oh my god finals.
December 12, 2010
I come to a brief interlude in my studying frenzy to wish you all the best of luck on finals and winter term exploits. Study well, eat well, sleep well, and be merry. Or try.

For the past 14 hours, this post has consisted of: "Tumblr needs to load so I can access my post and actually post it. How long is this site maintenance going to go on?" and Ma'ayan's reply: "I don't know but Tumblr is part of my job so this is terrible :( <3M." But now there is actual content!

A non-exhaustive compilation of rules unique to various professors I've had.

An abbreviated list of Oberlin eccentricities...I'm sure there are many more, though.

Why to pay attention to M.M. Bakhtin readings (turns out he has quite a following in several classes), and why to take Korean ExCo (for sheer awesomeness).
Those Industrious Chipmunks
November 4, 2010
Life after fall recess is that puzzling combination of stress and happiness at being stressed. I don't know how that's possible. Also: some unsolicited advice on why not to panic over course registration.

It smells like baklava and/or cinnamon swirl glaze in my room which, although odd because there is no one in the kitchen to make either, reminds me of my pre-midterms diet and all the other things I miss about Oberlin.
