Despite your unforgivable behavior this past month, I have decided to forgive you simply because you are a convenience. Sure, your hard drive failed, and sure, it failed again after we had it replaced not even two weeks later and made it impossible for the tech support to save anything, but at least I have the first draft of my novel on this USB, right? Oh yes, I was one step ahead you there. Even though you absolutely ate what little I had of the rewrite, the character sheets, and all my references, at least I have what I started with. If not, Lappy, you would have had to die a third time... by my own hands.
My dearest laptop, we have braved the past six months together well. But you are falling apart on me too soon. Let it be known that as much as I love you, if such an error occurs a third time, a replacement must be found. Parting will be difficult... but I'm not sure if I can bear the hurt of destroyed data three times in a row.
yeah, it's kind of ridiculous that my laptop died twice in a row due to the same reasons, and i'm pissed off because this time i didn't have any backup, so a lot of old writings, art, and pictures have been obliterated. not a lot of them were even good but i'm sentimental and hang on to old things, okay? on the bright side, i'll be a bit more active now... hopefully.
