The Walls

I can see the walls of my room, and boy is it ever depressing. 4 more days I must spend in this grey and red box. Okay, so I'm sure I wont spend all that time in here, but I'll spend a portion. They have definitely served me well over the past almost-year [sadly I moved in on September 10, 2006, and I'll be moving on the 1st of this year, so I will have lived here 9 days short of a year when all is said and done]. Last night I took down all of my random stuff, but today I took down all of my photos from my awesome photo wall: 184 pictures documenting the past 12 months beautifully. Its secondary use was to quickly point out people while I was talking about them. It was a wonderful wall, and I could easily locate everyone on it.

A run through of all the good times that The Wall had to offer:

> Summer 2006 fun with Mando and MegH
> Geography Field Camp 1
> Adam Gregory concert at the Renfrew Fair with Michelle
> The 'Welcome Michael to 39 Stewart' Party
> My first Rush mixer with Omega Theta Alpha Fraternity
> Thanksgiving in Renfrew

[A rare glimpse of Tabitha in her natural habitat.]

> Greek Olympics
