The School, The School, The School is on Fiiire

So today was relatively normal.
Went to class, watched a movie, went to lunch, went to work.
Worked until about 4:30-5:00. It was a quiet day.
Spent most of that time joking around with my co-workers, having a good time.
Helped anyone that needed it, nothing too complicated.

And then I hear a yell from across the room.
At first I thought it was just someone that didn't really have great social skills and spoke too loudly.
"Listen up!"
Huh, that's odd. *turns to look* Oh... uh oh. That's a security guard.
"We're going to need to evacuate the building. Everyone grab your things and evacuate immediately!"
Oh... oh awesome.

So I grabbed my things, went in and told the testers to get out, handed out their cellphones and evacuated.
While leaving the building there was a horrible odor of burning rubber and a fine amount of smoke in the air.
I was scheduled to work until 8:00 PM and I was still on the clock, so I had to wait outside with everyone else while we waited for the building to re-open.
I took this opportunity to take pictures of our ordeal.That's Daniel, my co-worker and Tim, my supervisor.Me and Daniel. He tried a thousand times to take a picture, but my phone was being super stupid. FINALLY got it to work. And resulted in my "ghost face". Why am I so white?!Me and Kriz. Thank the frickin' lord that my face is NOT washed out for once.This is me and Richard, my "work boyfriend". Hahahaha. (Don't be threatened Drew, it's a joke!)
We weren't permitted back in the building for the rest of the night, so I got to go home early. While I waited for my mom to come get me Richard and I hung out in his car and watched videos on his in-car computer thingy.
Came home, ate dinner, blogged about my night.

Too bad tomorrow won't be as exciting... unless the school spontaneously combusts.
But I'd prefer that didn't happen.
