I kinda killed my computer, not with fire but with boiling water. Tea. Whatever.
It's kind of annoying (especially because I was cut twenty minutes into a movie I mean COME ON), and I really thought it was going to make it at first (I mean, it did take more than fifteen minutes to react to the water thing)
Good new is, it's not really that bad ! we had to hand over all our work of the year the morning it happened, so I had all my school work on an USB key. I have a disk with most of my stuff copied on it, and anyway, when I called my dad to tell him about that accident, he basically laughed at my face and said he has a case like this a week and he really wasn't worried about the data.
So, my files are fine, probably. The completed novel I had is on the cloud, so I didn't lose that, though I lost all the work i did on my current late-night writing until my dad can save it.
Also, Smogs will keep updating as usual because my sister has aaaall the files (yep. look at that. security.)
Since I didn't have much internet service ANYWAY (yes three months later and internet still isn't working), it won't change much about my internet presence which was already low (I'll have to check messages at school tho), so the really annoying thing is DAMN, it's going to be boring as ever at my place, I can't even watch movies anymore.
On the upside, I live near a library so they're going to see even more of me.
The real problem is... if it can't be repaired, i'll have to buy a new laptop. Gosh. I don't even know how much it's going to cost. (that's when I'd like to be commissioned a bit, but well.) It's probably going to wait a little, actually... We barely work on computer this year (read : not at all, at least not at home) so it's not a necessity like it would have been last year.
So I'm a bit annoyed, but not really upset. At least if I have to buy a new laptop (which I hope I won't have to do but so far it doesn't look good), I'll maybe be able to dodge the dreaded windows 8 !
goddamnit I was looking forward to the holidays and my parent's connexion
