It was really late at night and I was watching tv past my bedtime, no one knew I was awake. I was about to get ready for bed and then continue with homework until I fall asleep. Soon after I got ready an earthquake hits. I feel the room shaking and I'm still very tired and delirious, I felt like I was losing my mind. I've never felt an earthquake as strong as that one. My brother and mom both walk out of their rooms asking if everyone was okay, we were and of course my sister slept through the whole thing. It's the next morning and as we drive to school I see a sign that fell from a little shop owned by a somber shoemaker. We get to school and everybody there was talking about what happend and asked each other if they felt the earthquake. Other than that school was just a normal boring day. Our dad picked us up from school after because it was a Wednesday. We get to the house and there are fallen spice bottles everywhere. Our dad told us that they were out of the cabinets that night because he was re-organizing them. After that I needed to do some laundry and went to the basement, but I heard a strange noise.
