Freaking Out

Hey guys–I’m going to skip the full post tonight because I’m recovering from a pretty scary night. Someone broke into our house! Don’t worry—everyone is fine, just very shaken up.

One of the girls living on the 1st floor had just gotten home, dropped her stuff off in her room, cracked open her window a bit to get some air and went to use the bathroom. When she got out of the bathroom she saw a man in her room with her laptop, wallet, and purse. She started screaming and grabbed her purse and he dropped everything and ran to a truck with his friend waiting for him and they drove away.

There were about 6 cops in our house and is was very SVU. We think he was waiting outsider her window with a cinderblock in place to prop himself up and as soon as she left the room he broke the screen, opened the window and climbed it. Who knows how long he was waiting there for. Thank goodness he wasn’t armed or hurt anyone. It’s just so scary to think that someone was waiting outside our house and could have really hurt someone. I’m so glad that I live on the top floor, and even gladder that I only have 2 more months here.

Anyway, not to leave you totally image-less, here is the BEST SNACK EVER:


Trader Joe’s Flaxseed Tortilla Chips and Salsa. Beyond amazing—after our drunken escapades last night with my friends, the bag is halfway gone!

Stay safe everyone!

    So sorry to hear your place was broken into! 😦 That’s horrible!! This happened to some friends of mine too. It must be SO scary to catch your intruder red handed like that, I would be so scared and not know what to do as I would assume he’d possibly have some kind of weapon and might hurt me.

    A friend of mine had her dorm room broken into, she was on the top floor of her building but they had these poles and planks going up all along the building for workers because they were repairing the outside of the building. She was away on vacation and when she got back from her trip someone had broken in to her room and stolen a bunch of her jewelry and her laptop! Ugh, so horrible.

    Oh my God that is so scary! I’m so glad everyone is safe though. Stuff like this is such a wake up call. I always have this totally fake sense of safety and control here at school, and I forget that I live in a scary city where bad stuff happens.

    Those chips are the best drunk good ever! I hope you have a good Sunday!

    Oh my gosh– that’s so scary!! I’m so glad you and everyone is okay and that he didn’t take her stuff! That’s so freaky, I’m always scared of stuff like that happening. Glad you’ll be out of there soon too!
