My First EARTHQUAKE!!!

I am typing up blog entries at the hostel trying to get caught up. At around 11:30 pm I hear a loud crashing noise. My first thought was who just broke what? Then an even louder crashing noise. Did something just hit the building? Then I realized everything was shaking. OH MY GOD! IT'S AN EARTHQUAKE!

I looked over at one of my hostel mates, he just smiled and said "Hell yeah."

It was a very minor quake, but it was my first time experiencing one. It was awesome! I love seismology/geology/volcanology so I've always wanted to experience an earthquake.

Very freaking cool.
