I'm sitting here, in the brand-spanking new addition to our beloved Zach S. Henderson Library.
(If everything is so bright and shiny and new, then why is the mouse I'm using freaking out? Oh, right... nobody thinks about cleaning the ball except for crazy people. Way to go, Katie.)
So, the library. It's very shiny. Very modern. The walls are a strange color of teal. And the carpet is Georgia Southern Blue. The windows are huge. And clean. I'm sitting here, right now, and I can see out of the window behind the monitor. I see a big hole where they've dug up all around the addition, and a blue port-a-potty that's kind of leaning to one side. I'm sitting where the Blue Building used to be. Does anybody even remember that building? Will anybody remember what the old part of the library looked like in a week? I will. I loved going there. This building, this foreign body on our lovely campus, is new and pretty, but I still loved the old part. I loved going up to the third floor and sitting in the oversized section with the photography books and getting lost in them. I loved the bathroom on the third floor. I took pictures of Callie in there last year. I'm going to miss the crazy hot pink bathroom. I loved the fourth floor this summer. It was deserted and empty except for this guy that always came up at the same time each day in his shirt and tie and with an old green hardback and a can of diet coke.
The bottom line is that the new part of the library is pretty. It's great. Really, it is. But I'd kind of gotted attached to the old part. I'm gonna miss it. Poor old Zach.
My Holga came yesterday. I don't have film for it. I didn't even think about film, I was so excited about the camera. I ordered 10 rolls of film for it last night. So, that's exciting. I also ordered some other stuff that I don't even need. But I wanted it and that's truly what matters.
Speaking of last night. There was more roommate fun at the Marvin house. We pulled my mattress into Kristen's room and the four of us (Me, Callie, Kristen and Christie) all slept in Kristen's room. Me and Callie on my bed, Kristen in hers, and Christie on the futon. It was like a sleepover, except we all actually live there. Great fun was had, nonetheless.
Okay, that's all. I'm tired of typing. And I'm sure the girl at the computer next to me is tired of it, too.
PS.... Everybody on the planet needs to know this song. It's just so freaking good.And all I do is miss you, and the way we used to be
All do is keep the beat and bad company
All I do is kiss you, through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet I’d do the stars with you any time
Juliet when we made love you used to cry
You said I love you like the stars above, I’ll love you till I die
There’s a place for us, you know the movie song
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet ?
