Tests and Earthquakes

May 17th, 2009 (08:53 pm)

*Crawls from the depth of... somewhere dark and depressing* Freeeedom! School stuff finally feels to be winding down even though week 8 starts on Monday.

Took Subtests II and III of the CSET on Saturday. Been cramming all week. Had to wake up at 5:45am, left the house by 6:20, arrived by 6:50... Test was supposed to start at 7:15 but they weren't even ready for us until past 7:30. Not cool! And then I went to a skating rink and a Belgium pub. Ah, if I hadn't needed to drive back to my Mom's house (cause she was in SD and the cat needed pampering.) I would have drunk something. They had a very extensive beer and wine list! Even though I have yet to taste a beer I like.

But in bigger news:

8:39pm, 4.7 Earthquake hits practically right next door. Lasted 10-15 second. Was freaking scary! A few seconds before it hit it felt like a helicopter or something was landing on top of the house and then everything started shaking. A several things from on top of the fireplace fell. The large portrait above the fireplace fell on top of my laptop!! What are the odds? But my laptop is a survivor and came out unscathed--the portrait glass shattered a bit. Besides that, wasn't too eventful, just terribly unexpected. The cat seemed to sense something though |: Traitor. I still remember the 1994 earthquake from when I was a kid--now that was terrifying!

Edit: Lol, it's now being reported as 5.0 magnitude. ^^;
Edit Edit: It's now 4.7 again... Swt. XD
