My Car is Parked in Front of My Apartment

The Chabad Telethon billboards are up for the third time here, it has been almost a week shy of two years here, my landlord raised my rent for the second time starting in September marking the beginning of my third year here, I spent 21 hours of my first birthday here awake and hopefully my last here, I burst quietly into sobs on the phone with a history professor from my school here, on my birthday, there was reflective plastic confetti on the floor of my apartment here, I cried in my lap when I hung up, my company left at six in the morning from here, on my birthday, l’ chaim to life!
