Fire

My apartment burned down today.

Plugged in a lamp in my bedroom and the electricity in my room went out. I flipped the breaker and heard a pop from my room. When I got in there the cord to the lamp was in flames and melted to the carpet and my bed had caught on fire.

Everyone is safe. I cut my wrist because the glass on the fire extinguisher wouldn't break, but I'm fine.

But all of our things are gone.
It's so surreal. We go tomorrow to see if anything was salvageable. The fire dept. says there might be a photo album or something. But we'll see.

I'm going to stay with Alex for now. Still have to hear from Jake and Andrea if this is going to be a permanent thing.

I'm not looking forward to seeing my burnt bedroom- or at least what is left of it. I had just bought myself a pretty dress for my birthday too.

Things are things and I'm so happy no one was hurt... but, it' not easy losing everything.

Just wanted to update.
