Definitely not insomnia caused by stress!

I was soundly asleep last night when a loud pop aroused me. A pungent smell then ensued. My survival instinct sprung me out from the bed. Adrenaline then surged when I realized that flame and sparks were coming out from my heater! I did not have time to even wear my glasses and I rushed straight out from my room. I banged on Ryan’s door but it was an exercise in futility. I did not want to wake others up since I have no idea about the time. The corridor was deserted. However, the fire alarm was shrieking and the heater producing sparks relentlessly! So, I called him using the public interphone and thank god, he responded after my second banging on the door!



I was so relieved. He remained composed and assessed the situation urgently, then decided to act. After switching off the heater, he also turned off the fire alarm. Curious hallmates then came by to check out the incidence. I was stunned beyond description. After the security personnel came by and took the heater off the wall, there was a charred part of the wall serving as a permanent reminder as to what had happened in that brief 5minutes.






However, as you can probably imagine, I spent the rest of the night worrying about the heater so sleep did not come easily after that. I was scared out of my wits. The hilarious side of it was I was actually more determined to save my notes above the all important IDs and valuables seeing that exam is looming over my head like a dark cloud.


My room is still in disarray and there is an ominous black coating of ash on almost all of my belongings.

Exactly the last thing I need before the exam!
