Archive Room

My father's words, in memory : "There are few kinds of payment that one cannot owe - medical bills, education, temple and old folks home".

I dropped by the Dean's Office later in the afternoon to hand some documents. At the end of the hallway of 11th Floor, I passed by a room with its door ajar. I peeked in and guess what, it's the Archive Room!

It wasn't opened on purpose for me to sneak in, of course. The methodistka was ransacking some files by the first aisle so I just stood quietly nearby. It was pretty interesting, really.

I saw labels on the aisles, 1978, 1980, farther in, 1981 and 1986.

Hahahahaa those are like historical records of the alumni of MMA. It was amazing. The 11th Floor is solely for the foreign students, the room could easily contain thousands of faded brown-colour files and boxes (prolly in the hundreds) of zacheot books! I really wanted to go inside, damn it. I managed to snap a pic or two of the cupboard closest to the door though ;)

Boxes labeled "zacheotki" and registration slips at the bottom

After squinting really hard..
This super (100x) Senior is from Peshawar, Pakistan

The person on the registration slip was born in 1968 so that makes her 40 years old today. Hahahaha she could be a famous doctor/specialist in our field. Check out her hairstyle in that black and white photograph! Reminds me of the yearbook yourself goof LOL
