We had a campus lockdown tonight.
I got evacuated from work mid phone conversation. I had no idea what was going on, aside from being told I needed to wrap up the conversation, so I was going to give the girl my info--and then I ended up rambling something about danger and needing to leave the building before hanging up and booking it out of there with my bag. I guess I should call the kid back, but when I do, should I tell her that I was evacuated from Mills Hall because of a double homicide and hostage situation, or should I bullshit something about a fire drill and talk about how safe campus is? Decisions, decisions, decisions....
There was a shooting just outside the back gate on Sunday as well, across the street from the elementary school that I work at on campus--I'm guessing, given that this was the general area we weren't supposed to go in tonight, that it's where all this shit went down.
Oakland...why did I think you'd be an ideal setting for an education?
At least I get to see a lot of helicopters, right? Right?
