{ Hello }

I’m Charlotte! I’m a creative writing major here at Oberlin, and an illustrative blogger here on the blogs. I come from midtown Manhattan, where I am still mildly frightened to stand on the terrace of my 36th floor apartment.

When I’m shirking my writing and illustrating duties, I enjoy co-op meals, making ambitious travel plans, and sacrificing my every waking moment to Oberlin’s wonderful theater community. I was raised primarily backstage, camped out in dressing rooms and prop closets with a book or a sketchpad. As a result, I have grown into a compulsively doodling Shakespeare-snob with a poor grasp of stable career choices, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. You can usually find me forgetting my lines in Warner Studios, drawing cartoons of my beloved peers during class in King, or writing the next Great American Novel in Slow Train.

I’m happy to be back for another semester surrounded by homemade tofu, flat terrain, and some of the best people I know!
