New favorite line from student writing:
"For these two reasons being a college students and a fool time worker is not always a wonderful thing."
And I'll round out the post with another gym story. This morning, I had a great workout. Some killer squats, lots of lunges, and ran really hard. Then I jumped in the shower (of course not literally, that would be weird), and when I had just put up my hand to shut the water off, the fire alarm started to ring.
It was 28 degrees this morning, and I was soaking wet. I immediately hit my target heart rate again, and thought "What do I do?"
I decided there was no way I was going outside. So I grabbed my towel.
Fortunately, the fire alarm stopped ringing after four rings, so I wasn't in danger of being consumed by an actual fire.
Once my heart slowed back down, I started thinking of all those times in college when the fire alarm would ring in the dorm. All those most inconvenient times, like at 2 in the morning, or 7 when you were just getting in the shower, and how everyone did actually have to leave the building.
