It seems like it was just yesterday when I packed two full suitcases and drove my butt up to Tempe to attend ASU (2001). I received a letter from ASU informing me that all the dorms were already booked and they asked I wait to hear where I will be staying. I said the hell with that and drove up to Tempe. When I showed up they gave me word that I would be staying at the hotel twin palms till dorms open up. I was ecstatic baby! Room service, a maid, and breakfast all at my fingertips. Remember I was only 18 and never staid in a hotel by myself. Well let’s just say it was nothing like that and at the time couldn’t wait till I had a real dorm to call home. Now that I read its changes I will forever miss this place. It was the beginning of a new chapter in my life, a chapter that turned out to be one of the important ones, and from this blog to Twin palms thanks for the memories. Some I will let everyone know about and others will stay private.
