Midnight Waking

Okay so I usually wake up at some random horrible time in the morning on my own accord but all I do is roll over look at the time and go back to sleep, no big deal no time wasted and yes this happens almost every night. Well last at 2am the fire alarm went off in my dorm waking the entire building, at least those sleeping probably just shocking the people who were still awake. This does not necessarily mean that there is a fire or a problem at all, they like to work on our building and the alarm will go off but usually at like 2pm we all go to the hall if we are even in the building and figure that no we don't have to leave nothing is wrong they are just messing with the alarm as they fix things. One this had not happened in awhile and two it was the middle of the night so we all let the building having no clue what was going on. I myself climbed down 12 stories worth of stairs. Then we all sat outside for a good twenty minutes until they told us that someone had just pulled the fire alarm and nothing was wrong we could all go back to bed. But you see our elevators don't go to the first floor after midnight for safety reasons so we all had to walk up at least 11 stories of stairs and those on the 12th, 13th, and probably so on the 14th floor just walked the rest of the way thinking no point in using the elevator after what they just walked it was not that much farther. So once back in my room thing are quite again and starting to settle back down when the alarm tells us it is now safe to return to our normal activities very loudly and twice. Of course I was thinking I can't till you shut up. It was an interesting night that I hope never happens again.
