Me again, posting this from my phone via 3G.
Tomorrow’s the 14th day of not having my laptop around. I can’t believe all my visual novel and academic-related plans went down the drain because of a simple issue.
Ha. I say simple even though I’m seriously worried now. Dad asked for a follow-up on the repair, but we just got some bad news. Apparently, it still won’t power on. I can’t believe it. One moment, I was using it, then I got the battery low notification and it hibernated. The next thing I knew, it wouldn’t turn on anymore, and it wouldn’t even charge. I thought it was just a (delayed) short-circuit due to a recent blackout, but according to the repairman, nothing’s fried. They opened it up, and everything’s supposedly A-OK. What could be the problem?
And now I’m depressed. I’m worried about the contents. Even if I buy a new laptop, it’s futile. Like a good ‘ol person, what makes my laptop valuable to me is not what’s on the outside, but what’s on the inside. The files. The ideas. The memories.
Like I said in a previous post, I don’t have backups of my most recent files. That includes my visual novel projects, visual novel ideas, school projects, course requirements, random poems and stories, and worse, pictures and videos from a recent trip I took with a couple of friends from high school.
I can’t imagine working so hard on my visual novels and then just losing them like that. Waaaaah! I hope with all my heart that my laptop turns out okay, files and all.
Man. I have something to add to my New Year’s Resolutions, I guess. Keep a backup of every single thing, every single time!
Anyway, sorry for the rant-y post. Hahaha. I’m just feeling really really sad because of this, and… well, writing it out makes me feel a lot better.
I wish you guys are all having an awesome (definitely more than mine) holiday! 💕 And I do pray that my 2016 will be a lot better than this. *sigh*
Wish me luck!
