Thank you, Borders! You'll never know...

So the end is near for good old Borders.  It's a sad time for book lovers everywhere.  I was a big fan of Borders.  I feel a special connection to one particular store 1,100 miles away from where I'm sitting.  It plays a huge role in a certain chapter of my life.  I remember when it was set to open in Baton Rouge.  Now it's set to close.

How can you say no to a babbling brook?

So the apartment hunt is not going as well as I'd hoped.  I am shocked at the number of apartments that haven't been updated in nearly 20 years.  I'm even more shocked that I just made that statement!  20 years ago, I was starting high school, begging my parents for an answering machine (all because I missed a phone call from Alex, my first boyfriend), and trying not to break out.  All of which were crucial to satisfying teenage angst.  Did it work?  Meh, I'm okay now, I think.  Although I can't find Alex on Facebook.  Annoying.
