Don’t Close Borders!

This is not just a blog post. This is a call to arms. Approximately 30 percent of Borders stores will close nationwide, a result of the company’s recent bankruptcy. The one at Carousel Center will close sometime in March.  As a child, I learned to love books among Border’s shelves. I remember analyzing my dreams in the self-help section and giggling at the Kama Sutra with pre-teen friends. (more…)

Recently, I decided to make a giant leap forward and do something I had been avoiding for at least five years: I decided to friend my mom on Facebook. Why? Maybe I could no longer ignore the fact that she also knew how to use a computer. Or maybe I just don’t care if she sees that I Like “Lower the Drinking Age,” or that I occasionally enjoy dropping the f-bomb in my statuses.

Anyway, this has been making me think, how do I adapt to a world where my parents, and every other person I’ve ever known in my life, are on Facebook? Easy, just follow this helpful guide I found today on how not to fail on Facebook. These fails must be seen because in a world where Facebook is not just a trend, but a part of daily life, it is important you use it properly:

If you go to Syracuse, you likely have an extremely bad case of the Mondays this week. That may be because we are one of the only schools not to get off for President’s Day; so here is a picture of a cat made to look like Pikachu. I don’t really have much more to add to this, except if you can’t even crack a smile at this then, well, you’re just a heartless member of Team Rocket.
