The rate he was going so I acted fast

I knew he wasn't going to last long at the rate he was going so I acted fast. I opened the window and yelled at him, he spun around and pointed the gun at me before realizing I was actually talking to him.

I told him to climb up to my window and I would hold off the creatures, he didn't have much choice so he nodded I grabbed a rifle and gave him a signal to go. He took off in a dead sprint towards the building, as he got close to each creature I would shoot the creature aiming for the head. He finally made it to the building. As he climbed up I tossed a sheet over over the window sill for him to grab on to and pulled him inside, he sat still for a minute then thanked me for helping him. As we both sat there catching our breath I realized that I had just learned something new about my self....

I'm a very good shot! We exchanged short pleasantries, considering I had little to offer. I told him what I had learned from the TV. and we decided that it would be a good idea to stick together on our trek to one of the military bases. So now we are going to try to get some sleep, and sleep with one eye open now that the creatures know we're in this building. Tomorrow we start our journey to the nearest base which is about 500 miles away and we have no idea of the state of the roads or other cities.

Right now the only thing I know about myself other than I'm quite proficient with guns, is that I want to survive and I plan to.

No one on the sidewalks in cars

Well, didn't sleep much last night. Started the day today with more questions and still no answers. Strange sounds coming out of the woods surrounding the house, loud screeching and ungodly inhuman screams and moans.

I didn't sleep much after that. I exercised extreme caution today as a explored outside the house and I still have no recollection of who I am. I found keys to the car outside, (and apparently I know how to drive a car), and drove around a little bit.

I didn't see very much at first, but soon I started seeing cars and trucks along the road empty, against my better judgement I got out and inspected a few of them and they appeared to have just been abandoned, some were even still running and I have to say that left me with quite an eerie feeling.

I drove around for quite awhile and realized that I seemed to know where I was going and I finally ended up in a small town. I needed gas so I decided to look for a station and as I drove around I started to notice that I wasn't seeing any people, no one on the sidewalks, in cars, or in any of the stores. I finally found a gas station and pulled up to the gas pump and wondered if the pump would even work and luckily it did, so I filled the car up and walked into the gas station to see if anyone was inside and of course... no one.

I at least grabbed some food, drinks, a map and a few other supplies and went back to the car. At this point I started to really worry, where the hell are all the people in this town? Why was I able to navigate this town without any recollection of it? What is going on? As I tried to figure out what was going on I noticed it was starting to get dark and with the noises I had heard the previous night I didn't want to be moving around after dark. At least not until I figure out what is going on.

I decided to try to find somewhere safe to sleep for the night and I happened upon a hotel and decided to check it out. The lights were on inside but once again there was no one there, so I helped myself to a room key and I'm hoping to get a better nights rest tonight. I'm starting to wonder if maybe I'm crazy, the only thing that convinces me that I'm not is reading the pages I have written in this journal.

My gut tells me that something is horribly wrong and that I should probably arm myself so maybe I'll look for something to defend myself with tomorrow as well.

surroundings seem familiar

I awoke today with no recollection of my identity or my past.
My surroundings seem familiar to me but I do not recognize this place, the house I'm in seems to have been ransacked.

I've tried the televisions, radios and computers... nothing, no signals. I thought for a moment I heard a faint voice on the radio but it disappeared as quickly as it came. Outside everything is eerily quiet, no dogs, nothing but the faint sounds of birds and insects.

My body aches and my mind is feeling quite fuzzy, I can only hope I regain some memory of who I am and what is going on soon. As it was already late when I awoke I feel that I should rest and recover more before I leave this house, luckily there was plenty of food here.

There is also a car parked in the driveway, I figure I'll look for keys tomorrow but right now I'm going to try to get some sleep and figure things out tomorrow.

Basically two possible situations of the party

It all starts with a detailed mental image of the party itself: the number of people you plan to invite, the location, the food and drinks, music, and any entertainment activities you might want to include. Identify the separate steps you need to do and find out how long each of them will take. Also, design a sequence for all these steps. When all this is planned in detail, you’ll know exactly how much time you’ll need for the preparations.

There are basically two possible situations: you know the date of the party, in which case you should start counting back from that day to determine when you should start the preparations; or you know when you are free to start taking care of the arrangements and you set the date according to that. party with me :D

Whichever situation may apply, you need to give yourself deadlines for each aspect of the party you need to polish off.

Be strict with your deadlines and allow two to three days lead time for each in case something goes awry. That way, you’ll not only have an enjoyable party, but also a pleasant preparation.
