appalling_cynicism: (Do I exist?)
So, it is no secret that technology hates me. I know that sounds ridiculous, and it did start out as a joke, but I am truly starting to believe it. How else can I explain the death of my external hard drive and my laptop within a week of each other? I'm not sure whether the files can be rescued, but I am not optimistic. There is a horribly good chance that I've lost all my music, movies, television series, and documents. I am upset about that, but not overly so. The idea that I may have lost all my photos? Driven me to hopeless sobbing in my room. I have about 5 years worth of photos on those devices. Some are printed, most have probably been copied onto other peoples' computers, but there are still a fair few that are probably gone forever.

Also, I am ridiculously and painfully sunburnt.

There are good things happening in my life...I assume. I can't think of any right now, but there must be. Nothing is horribly wrong, it's just that nothing is quite right either. Losing my photos, sunburnt beyond recognition, extended family will be gone before Christmas, people I still considered friends treating me like nothing, sister in New Zealand doing all sorts of amazing things without me.

...I am baking tomorrow. Baking will alleviate my suffering.

appalling_cynicism: (Words fail me)
I still have about 3000 words to write, and I really don't want to do it. I already did it once, dammit, I would rather bang my head against the wall than write it again.

So, instead, I am going to picspam the unspeakably stunning Gina Torres.

Why, hello, Gina Torres )

appalling_cynicism: (A house of cards)
I opened the Word document that should contain my 3300 word assignment that is due today that I finished at about 4am. The document is now completely blank. I was so exhausted and caffeinated when I wrote that I honestly have no idea what I wrote, so reproducing it is going to be a bitch.

Kill me now?
