23 Thoughts I Had While Staying In The Oldest Dorm On My Campus

Sometimes old isn't always better.

23 Thoughts I Had While Staying In The Oldest Dorm On My Campus
Sam Chase

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.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
