... for bed. The girls from the loud room came over and told us to be quiet even though we weren't being loud. Like what???? Cariah was BEYOND angry, like the rest of us. It was so annoying! Now it's storming outside and it's actually really freaky.. It's honestly a horror movie outside. The wind is howling, the door is creaking, and I'm crying on the inside.
