I woke up to my alarm. I pondered that I had gotten more sleep or slept for more consecutive hours than I did the past five nights. I checked the weather: cold enough to wear pants. I responded to two snapchats. After getting dressed, I got my backpack together with all the notebooks I needed, noting that today only required my laptop. In the kitchen, I started making my breakfast. I had planned to make a nice full meal for Friday morning so I did; I got out all the ingredients and went to work. The fire alarm promptly went off and I sprinted to stop it. My roommates probably woke up. I finished making my breakfast, left my apartment, locked the door, walked through the woods to my bus stop, got on the bus, started playing music in my headphones, and ignored the eye contact of a semi-friend semi-acquaintance so we wouldn’t have to deal with the small talk that came with it. I got off the bus and called my friend back who had called me while on the bus. We talked while I walked to my lab and then as I sat down in my low seat I ended the call to remain professional.

Social Exposition Paragraph
The social interactions I made in a day consisted of different forms of interacting with people: in person, over the phone, avoiding interaction, and shared experiences and cause and effect without direct contact either physical or verbal. I am the first to wake up in my apartment, and today I accidentally set off the fire alarm twice while preparing my breakfast. While my roommates remained in their rooms silently, I include this as an interaction because my activities impacted their day, likely waking them up earlier than they wanted, disturbing their sleep and effecting the rest of their day. Then I consider phone calls, text, and social media messages to be interacting too. I called my friend from highschool back on the phone after I had to decline her call on the bus. We conversed as I walked to my lab in the morning from the bus stop. I also avoided saying hello to a person on the bus whom I only know in glacing passes.
