Heya, I’m Lior! I come from the Philadelphia greater area, I’m probably shorter than most people you’ll ever meet in your life, and no matter when you’re reading this, I’m probably wearing floral. I arrived at Oberlin intending to study Latin and History, but while on leave, I lived on a farm and also moved to Oregon, and I came back an Environmental Studies and Politics major. It was certainly a big shift, but getting to the point of being certain in what you want often means things take very unexpected turns along the way. That’s something I plan to write about, and I hope that blogging about my experiences of being a very confused, very passionate person can shed some light on the many, many places Oberlin can take you.

When I’m not studying the environment for school, I love to be out in it. I love dense woods and mountains, and some of the best days of my life were spent underground in lava caves. When I can’t get away to places that are more dirt than concrete, I can be found practicing Norwegian, playing video games, chatting very emotively with my friends (or with strangers, if we’re being honest), writing prose I’ll never finish, nerding out over constitutional law, singing whatever song won’t leave me alone, and/or listening to music at much too high a volume for my ears to handle.
