Hello, readers! My name is Ruth (she/her/hers) and I’m a 3rd year Psychology/German double major and Linguistics concentrator here at Oberlin College. I hail from Albuquerque, NM, home of the largest hot air balloon festival in the world.

Besides blogging, I wear many other hats on campus! When I’m not reading, note-taking, and lovingly putting color-coded events into my Google Calendar, you can find me working shifts in my co-op or hanging out “studying” with friends in Slow Train. I’ve been a mentor both for Oberlin students and for girls in the Oberlin Middle School. I’m also heavily involved in the  psychology department, working as a TA and doing supervised lab research.

When I have a (rare) moment of free time, I enjoy dancing, spending time with friends, rock climbing, and attending as many concerts and shows as is physically possible. If anyone has contacts in the Ministry of Magic, please put in a good word for me. I would love a time turner.

This coming semester I’ll be studying abroad in Berlin! Stay tuned to hear all about my European adventures.

I love writing about my experience at Oberlin! I hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to ask me any questions. I can’t guarantee I’ll know the answer, but I’ll give it my best shot. Happy reading!

I had an amazing month making art that I can use, connecting with people and my landscape, and learning to trust both myself and the clay I shaped.
