9/11

Where were you when you found out? I was in my dorm room, eating cottage cheese and raspberries, and I put on the news. I remember calling my mom, and she was hysterical. I went to one class that morning, and then I met up with a friend and hung out at their apartment for the rest of the day.

    I watched it on the news in my dorm room.  Went to class, class was canceled.  Went back to the dorm, it was evacuated due to a bomb threat.  Of course I had no clue, and wandered out after 10 minutes alone.  Duh.

    Driving a Uhaul to DH's house so we could move in together. At first we thought Howard Stern was playing a joke but after the second plane hit we realized it was no joke. It took us all day to move because we kept stopping to watch the news and try to call my BFF, whose father worked in the building next to the Trade Center and whose brother worked in the Pentagon.

    I had just taken out the trash.  Then I found out my mom was in the city and lost it to.  I had to supervise 3p-11p that night.  It was the most surreal night ever.

    My roommates and I went to a vball game that night, the gas was outrageously expensive and I popped a banana on the ground.  That's all I remember.

    I woke up in the still-dark-early and checked my AOL and it was reporting the first plane strike. Wasband/then-husband wandered past the den (where I was living by then) and I said something to him and he doubled back and turn on the TV - just in time to watch the second plane hit. We argued about taking the children to school. He won, but I sat outside almost the entire time waiting to take them back home with me. Later that evening I had to go to a class and drove past Sky Harbor at rush hour - only there was no rush. The road, the sky, all eerily quiet. Only huge black Suburbans with deeply tinted windows drove past, making their way to the airport.

    My senior year in college.  I stopped by a friend's room on the way to breakfast.  At first I thought they were watching a movie, until the first tower started to fall.  I remember just wanting to go home, but VA to DE wasn't a route that seemed wise to take.

    I was in grad school and was finishing up breakfast and coffee.  I never watched those morning shows, but started flipping around and hit GMA after the first plane strike.  The second plane stuck while I was cleaning up.I was a very surreal day because my part of campus had basically no TVs and every news website was down.  My parents were on vacation and couldn't get through to us because the cell phone lines were so clogged.

    I took my 7th grade Reading class to check out books from the library, and they had on the tv. We watched in shock, and I kept trying to call my cousin that was at NYU at the time. I could never get through.

    I was riding the school bus and the bus driver had the radio on. When I got to school I used my donut money to call my Dad on the payphone to tell him to turn on the news.
