{ Hello }

I am Megan from Michigan. I'm a third-year in the conservatory who might also want to complete the double degree program or the MMT (Masters of Music Teaching). Who knows... in a perfect world, I would double major in piano & culinary performance, with an emphasis on ragtime and cake. Even though this is Oberlin, I'm not sure that's feasible. I am looking into it.

I'm a big fan of co-ops, the crazy amount of concerts that go on at Oberlin, all the school libraries, the Oberlin Public Library, the beautiful location of this college, living in Johnson House right next to the arb, the wardrobe choices of Oberlin students, burritos at Agave, the smallness, the space, and the large number of gingko trees on campus.

We can do it

The buzz and hum of worry and work-work-work is palpable, noticeable.

Oberlin Time

The days are long, the weeks are short.


As an upperclassman, I seem to be endowed with magical powers and abilities.

Back to school

SUMMER, where have you gone?

Summer thoughts

I have been unabashedly enjoying my time away.

Rehearsals, ensembles, and you

Oh my.

Spring things

My roommate and I vacuumed our room.

A month of one's own

A month to yourself. A WHOLE MONTH.

A lot on my plate

Luckily, as in all of my blog entries, my co-op comes to the rescue.

By the numbers

A glorious and nuanced numerical picture of my tenure at this institution.

Liquid days

Co-ops are wonderful, and the food is great. Do not worry, first years I've talked to who have expressed their doubts about this!


Yesterday, I would have laughed heartily and bitterly at the suggestion of updating my poor, neglected blog.

Chop chop

I knew that college was supposed to be full of life-changing realizations, but I'm not sure I could have prepared myself for this.

A quick yet well thought out vignette

German, food, and friends. Good times, free time, and endless hectares of vocabulary to learn. Co-oping, the present perfect, and the biting cold.

Hallo, ich hei├če Megan!

I am here to take Intensive German in an effort to shove enough grammar and vocabulary into my head to take German 102 in the coming semester.

Color theory

I don't think I'll ever be ready for winter. Each year, it seems to catch me by surprise.

Simplify, simplify.

I know that my many years of avoiding garden work at home would suggest otherwise, but I love biking out to the George Jones Farm to work on OSCA's small plot of land.
