Hello, readers! My name is Ruth (she/her/hers) and I’m a 3nd 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 (s/o to my other NM Obies!).
Besides blogging, I wear a lot of 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 making obscene quantities of granola for my co-op or hanging out “studying” with friends in Slow Train. I’m also a PAL (Peer Advising Leader), which means I help first-years adjust academically and socially to Oberlin. This semester I’m both an assistant in a psychology research lab and a TA for the Methods I course in the psych department. When I have a (rare) moment of free time, I enjoy contra dancing, taking ballet classes, seeing my friends, 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.
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!
