I live in the oldest dorm on campus, Frazer. It is over 45 years old and has been home to many young men and women here at Logwood. I originally wanted to live here because my sister told me I wouldn't fit in in the other dorms, little did I know how wrong she was. With its age, Frazer has begun to look worse and worse and I almost regret not living in the newer buildings. If it wasn't for the people, I probably would have transferred.
When you live in a building as old as ours, some thoughts start to cross your mind. Some are positive, but others are just about what you expect about a building as torn as this one. I'll give a few for example.
1. At least our light switches aren’t on timers.
2. Is that mold?
3. Yep, that’s mold.
4. Why is my ceiling bleeding?
5. Why can nothing stick to my walls?
6. I wonder what kind of people have been in here before me?
7. I don’t care about the mass amounts of bleach I used, I’m not going in that shower barefoot.
8. Is that stain made by age or by people?
9. I bet this bed has been vomited in at least 18 times.
10. Sometimes I wonder if I should be worried about how many times I've touched this desk.
11. We have the best water pressure out of anyone, I can't live without this.
12. Why does the sixth floor have hot water and the third floor doesn’t?
13. If I squint, I can see the layers of vomit over the years in this elevator.
14. This place is old enough that it probably has ghosts.
15. This is the third time this week toilet water has leaked from above on someone in this hall.
16. I wonder if anyone secretly left behind treasure?
17. I wonder if they’re going to pin these damages on me?
18. I’ve seen the words “ALEX,” “SAM,” and “GAY,” all carved into the wood and I’m not sure if it’s new or old.
19. This place hasn’t burned down yet.
20. I set my food down for five seconds and suddenly I have 73 generations of fruit flies in my room.
21. Why is the elevator making that sound?
22. The elevator hasn’t killed anyone yet as far as I know.
23. “Welcome to Frazer.”
Lucky for all of the new freshman coming in, this place is being torn down and left nothing but a skeleton. In two years, it will look brand new, and really cool.
