Remembering the Dorm....

I found this OLD picture of a college dorm on shorpy.com. It's from 1911. Not too much different from my Texas State University Arnold Hall dorm circa May 2005.


I was packing my things up to return home for the summer and I took this picture thinking, "I might want to remember this for some reason.."

It wasn't to remember how much space I didn't have. If you look closely you can see that I'm on instant messenger-- Does anyone use that anymore? I find it ironic that my room is decorated with Eiffel Towers and I'm going to Paris (for the first time) in nine days. I'm hoping to visit a fabulous flea market and bring home some authentic Parisian decor to replace the fake fake fake stuff that I've gotten rid of over the past few years.



And here's a picture of a beautiful, modern dorm from Swathmore College:

I remember the long nights on IM where you'd have a million and one messages going all at the same time. How funny! Is blogging the new IMing?

I also like your colorful exam schedule up on the wall.
