What's up, y'all? My name is Jason Hewitt, and I'm a 3rd-year English major at Oberlin College.

If you catch a football game at Knowlton Stadium in the fall, look for #50 on the field. That's me.

When I'm not busy with football or my studies, I'm usually chilling. There are many activities I do while I'm "chilling." These activities include the following: Writing about topics that interest me, playing guitar until my fingers get exhausted, yelling at my television because I'm playing either Madden or 2K, and blasting Kendrick Lamar songs while reciting most of the lyrics.

I write for three platforms here at Oberlin: The Blogs (What you're reading now, haha), The Oberlin Review (https://oberlinreview.org/tag/jason-hewitt/), and The Oberlin Grape.

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.” That’s the phrase that best describes my experience in Obieland. I have been challenged by this place, y'all. There were times when I wanted to give up, but then I remembered that I'm the man I am today because of each and every challenge life has thrown at me.

Despite all the complaints I have about this place, I believe that Oberlin has a very special place in my heart. THANK YOU for taking the time to read my work. I appreciate you.

Oberlin embraced "Black Panther" with a TON of hype, just as the rest of the world did.

When I boarded an airplane to Ohio in August, I did not know what to expect. I came into the 2017-18 school year with an optimistic perspective, but I had no idea what the year would consist of.
