What I'm Thankful For Redux

Three years ago, I wrote/drew this post about Thanksgiving. I know I already posted once this week, but I wanted my last semester to echo my first one.

I hope the text is all readable. I'm uploading photos of cartoons again, and this time it's a cell phone camera.

See the previous Thanksgiving post for True Things about family, "I have found my people," and public libraries. Especially public libraries. And, of course, I'm thankful for a good education, for good friends, good books, good food, warm socks (don't laugh, these are very important in Ohio), research opportunities, everyone who's helping me with grad school applications . . . These were just the things that were easiest to draw.

I have come to understand that there is a space and a place for everyone at Oberlin, even for those who straddle different cultural/social identities, like me.
