My jeans are covered in specks of mud, along with my bag (which is filled with socks). I’m on the third floor of a building in the middle of campus, waiting for a presentation or something. I actually ended up getting here two hours earlier, and I’ve sat around, doing homework ever since. So long as I am indoors, I am still safe.
We’ve passed the forty eight hour mark, now, and it’s stressful.
Going out into the dark rain is treacherous. It’s easy to slip in the mud and puddles, visibility is very low, and there are zombies everywhere. Now that we’ve passed the half way mark in how many humans have been turned into zombies, it’s a much more difficult game. In fact, out of the ten of my friends who decided to play HvZ, only two are left.
Honestly, I’m just happy to still be alive right now. More than half of the players are now zombies (167 are zombies, and 164 are humans). Being in the winning half is feeling pretty nice at the moment, and it would be enormously cool to get into the top 25th percentile instead of the 49th or so that I’m at now. Still, all is well.
Tomorrow will be more difficult. I don’t know how I will get to my 9.30 class without dying. It will be terribly difficult with the day-light and large amounts of zombies around Baldwin Hall. And I don’t even plan on leaving from that class, not even for lunch. My other class is so close and only two hours later, so I’ll bring something with me from breakfast so that I can eat before religions. After religions, I’m not quite sure how I’ll get back to Missouri Hall, but I’ll try my damnedest. And once I get back there, I only have to leave for one other thing–a screening of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince around seven. It’s on the complete other side of campus, so I’m not quite sure how I’ll get there, but hopefully it will work out.
Really, though, I should be trying to think of a way to get out of this building for right now. After the presentation that I’m seeing ends around nine or ten, I’ll probably stay a little while longer before venturing out of the basement to another building, going into its basement, then cutting to Mo hall. The only thing that I can hope for is that the rain and the dark help me on my late night journeys.
Tomorrow will probably be the end of my human life and the start of my life as one of the undead. But even getting this far is an accomplishment, and I keep telling myself that. After all, I’ve fended off plenty of zombies so far, and I’ve been logical, rational, and quick with my escapes and walking to and from classes. I’m proud that I’ve used my brain in finding the best ways around campus and in avoiding zombies.
Anyway, that’s about it for today. Should I become a zombie while heading back to Missouri Hall, I will inform you.
