Saddest Day Ever

Due to a series of unfortunate events, today I lost three year's worth of files. I no longer have a computer record of the past three years of my life and I am sad, perhaps depressed. Can you say a prayer for me? I know that I cannot recover the files (this is not really miracle-material . . . they are gone for good!) but I would sure like to have some sort of piece of mind and be able to sleep tonight. I have been crying nonstop because we are talking COUNTLESS hours that are lost. Beautiful worksheets, stunning rubrics, assignment guides galore. Gone. All of the assignments I have submitted and still needed to submit for my Masters degree. No longer. Letters of recommendation I have written. Vanished. The homework that is due at midnight. Hmmm. That would be nice to find. Sadly, nope.

I have hard copies of many things, and I am going to put my TAs to work re-typing the big stuff. My mom called this afternoon and I started sobbing; she left work to come to comfort me. I love that woman, who understands my stress and pain. I know, I am crying over files, but, man. It's like I've lost the record of my life.

I feel your pain (to an extent)! A couple of years ago, my brother asked to borrow my computer for a big computer game night his brothers-in-law were planning. He and one of the brothers-in-law were trying to make my computer run faster, and deleted everything. I lost many things, including my entire journal from college and beyond. I was a mess for days. I can't imagine losing all of your teaching and school stuff! I'm sorry! I'm a pretty fast typer, so if you need help retyping anything, let me know. :)

I am sending you a big virtual hug!
I know you are super organised and have hard copies of nearly everything, but I know how you feel. I lost three years worth of pictures a while ago. Thank goodness for my blog, where I had posted a LOT of my favorites. Chin up, madame. Look on the bright side. You won't run out of things to do any time soon.

Do you feel like Jo from Little Women?

OH, Krys! This happened to me last year! I lost my journal (which thankfully I had a hard copy), and I lost all my school files because of a flash drive malfunction. That is SAD SAD! :(
