Why is my technology turning against me?

A day or two after my hard drive crash I tried using my mp3 player because I hadn't listened to any music since my computer died.  And of course it's dead now too.

I exhausted my recovery options for the hard drive, nothing worked.  So this morning I gave it to Tom, and he erased it.  I actually teared up, it was really hard.  However, after the erase, it still didn't work.

So I am either buying a new hard drive or selling the parts of my laptop to buy a new one.

Either way, it monetarily hurts.

My hard drive crashed on Wednesday night.

I haven't backed up since I got to school.

...I really wish I cared less about what people thought.

This is what I did this morning.  :)

I am still excited about Greek, not so excited about the grammar part of it.  It's brought me to tears more than once, but today's class helped a lot.

I am surviving another Monday, probably not as gracefully as one might hope, but I am surviving.

Define: Crap Timing

I am currently working at the Help Desk in the library.  My computer wasn't loading Etsy when I tried to look at it yesterday or the day before, but I wasn't really concerned.  It was sad, but not a huge problem.

This morning, MSN messenger kept telling me my username didn't exist or my password was wrong.  Which made no sense, because I have it set so that it saves my username and password and automatically logs me on.  After I tried it manually a time or three, I gave up, it wasn't that big of a deal.  So I tried to check my hotmail from  That didn't load.  At all.  Which was also really strange.  So I tried it on the computer next to me.  Which also wouldn't load it.  As I was trying to figure it out, someone else in the lab was having the same problem.  I told her I was working on it.

And I did, for a long time, but I can't figure it out.  I called someone off campus, theirs is fine.  I tried, which also didn't work.  I called my roommate, she couldn't get it to work either.  So MSN/Hotmail/Microsoft things that are online/Etsy are not able to be accessed from campus at this time.

And none of the faculty techs will be back in until Monday morning.

This would happen while I was working.


Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta...

I'm really excited about Greek.  We learned the alphabet yesterday, and then in my next class my teacher pulled up the Great Commission, in Greek, and I knew what some of the letters were!

I felt sweet.

I got my work schedule.

On Monday, Biology starts at 9:00 and goes until 10:00.  Right after that is Chapel until a little after 11:00.  At 11:00 I am scheduled to work at the Help Desk in the Library until 1:00, which is when Greek starts.  It ends at 2:30, but I stay there for Introduction to Missions at 2:40 (Did I mention that all of my classes are in the same two rooms except for my Biology Lab?  I think that one is next door.).  That gets over at 3:40, just in time for me to go to the computer lab in the Student Center to work the 4:00-8:00 shift.

My plan is to go back to my room, set the alarm for 11:45 pm, pass out, and then sleep until 11:45 so I can make it to the library to work from midnight to 2 am.

Then I'll go pass out again until about 7:30 am so I can be on time to my 7:45 class Tuesday morning.

Mondays are gonna be extra rough this semester.
