A Map for the Road
Dear future reader! Hello! Welcome to the archives of my blog. What you see here is a representation of four years of my Oberlin. As I've lived and written, several threads have developed that you can trace in my writing, if you like; this post contains a set of flowcharts to help you follow those arcs.
The extracurriculars are the simplest to categorize:
Of course, I've written about classes, too. I took a lot (way too many) of them, so there's a lot to talk about. (If I took more classes than necessary, does that make them extracurriculars too?)
Careful readers will note that there are some recurring characters in this archive: Sarah, my roommate, appears in It's a Beautiful Day in the Roommatehood and A Room With A View, and also wrote the guest post From Yarn to Garment X. My friend Clay visited me and was featured in Mr. Riley Comes A-Callin, and then hosted me and was featured in Fall Break, Take Two: Boston Edition. A smattering of other friends also show up in the slice-of-life type posts, of which there are many.
A few of my posts are very introspective; I talk a little about my difficulties in Oberlin, how I function, and so forth. If you want a small introduction to me directly, that's what I wrote Hello Goodbye for, but I do try to be pretty explicit about the way Oberlin filters through my lens, so any one of my posts is bound to talk a lot about my mindset.
(Fact about me: I adore organizing.)
Not that my posts have to be read according to the structures I've sketched out here - chronological order is perfectly fine, since that's how I wrote them and that's how my life went. Nothing wrong with picking at random, either! Basically, do whatever floats your boat, but if you're interested in something specific, now you know where to find it.
(Unless you can't read my handwriting. In which case you're SOL. Sorry.)
My Oberlin is yours to peruse! Do enjoy. I certainly did.
