BEST day on campus EVER

So, if I ever complain that school is boring, please remind me of this post. So this weekend I did not get as much homework done as I needed to and I was dreading going to class today. My STUPID alarm is about to die, I have been so exhausted lately and my alarm is just not cutting it anymore. So I set it to go off at 5:45am to get a shower and get ready for class at 8am, and when it went off I quickly decided that that was WAY to early to wake up. I reset my alarm for 6:30am and I would just take a really quick shower. Well, somehow my alarm just got all jacked up. I rolled over and looked at my alarm clock and it said that the time was 7:31am and I freaked. I looked at my cell phone and thankfully it said 6:50, so I rushed to the shower and got ready. After running to the bank I barely made it to my American Revolution class. I was DREADING this class because it was discussion day and I hadn't done the reading AND I remembered that I had a map quiz at 11am. Super fun!!!

I made it through my first two classes and started my 3rd class at 11am. We got started and did our quiz, naturally I made a 100, mainly because I am awesome and I am better at memorizing things. So 30 minutes into our class some student comes pounding on the door and said "did you know you have to evacuate the building?" and naturally we had no idea, so in a split second our professor went into protective mode and told us to grab our stuff and get out now! We all scrambled out and NO ONE would tell us what was going on. After about 30 minutes of standing outside they told us that the building would not be opened up again for a couple of hours. We finally found out that some old Civil War Era ammunition had been gifted to the Social Science building and someone had (magically it seems) discovered that the ammunition was still live. Needless to say most people just left, like myself.

So yeah, if I ever say that being on campus is boring just remind me of this day. It was just so funny, everyone thought that it was just a drill because no one was telling us anything. We figured if it was a gunmen then they wouldn't be sending us out into the open...hopefully not. I kept saying that if it was legit then helicopters would be flying around....well 20 minutes after being outside the helicopters finally showed up! As exciting as it was, hopefully this will not be that regular occurrence!!
