Exploring the Forbidden Halls

Today, I went to class with the rest of my family. At my "school," preschool through 10th grade meets on Tuesdays, and my lonely little class of juniors meets on Wednesday. Normally, I stay home on Tuesdays, but I decided to go hang out around the school today. Sometimes my friends will drop by, and some of the "lowerclassmen" are pretty cool anyway XD

Sure enough, some of my friends showed up, and we even ended up going to Subway where our friend works for lunch. We got back from lunch at about 2 o'clock: math class time. Some kids don't take that math class, including Daniel S, so Amanda and I hung out with him until school was over.

We were bored and unsupervised, so we decided to explore. The school building is massive, and most of it's not even being used. There are lots of stairs and complicated hallways that connect and turn and end and lead to random double doors that lead to MORE hallways and stairs. It can be confusing when you're not used to it, but we mostly know our way around.

We went to the elementary school wing and reminisced for a while, went to the office and dodged the scary administration people, poked around in the vending area. On our way back, we decided to go through what I like to call the "Forbidden Hallway."

I don't know that it's actually forbidden, and I don't say that out loud, but it has a great ring to it, doesn't it? It really looks like a Forbidden Hallway.

For one thing, it's unfinished. The floor is some kind of black stuff that looks like it's been scratched up. For another thing, it's really long. You walk through the double doors and you're met with a long, dark hallway that ends in another set of doors waaaaay off in the distance. On either side of the hall, there are empty doors, offering all sorts of ghouls. It's perfectly quiet, but the echo is unbelievable. It's like you can hear every breath bounce off the walls. It's also frigid.

It's dark, lonely, long, cold, creepy, and full of echos. I pretty much love it. I wonder if they'll ever finish it?

So Amanda and Daniel S and I hung out there for a while, poking in the classrooms (the group of scarecrow children nearly gave us a heart attack), whispering, listening to our footsteps change sounds as they bounced down the hall.

After a while we explored the quiet upper floors we'd never had a chance to as kids.

It was a pretty cool afternoon. I like just chilling with my friends. Not even doing anything. Just being with them is fun.

It sounds like you had a lot of fun!!! And 'Forbidden Hallway' seems like an appropriate name for it :)! I think there might have been an error in the list, btw:
"161. I cannot stand the word “chick” when referring to a girl. It’s degrading. Unless,
162. I’m allergic to peanuts."
I totally read that as one sentence and cracked up :D lol. In all seriousness though, Hilari Bell is amazing. The Knight and Rogue novels are some of my favorites (and thanks to you, I read and seriously enjoyed the Farsala books)! And the word verification for this comment is: liess (no lie). :D lol. I shouldn't be typing when I'm this hyper...

You school sounds cool. Mine was small and . . . ordinary lol. Or maybe I lacked imagination hehe.

I can't believe you don't like ravioli! I love that stuff. Actually I love all Italian food. Okay I'm hungry so I need to avoid talking about food lol.

Oh and I very much appreciate 158. I hate when loud music scares the crap out of me and messes with my playlist that I might currently be listening to.
