Sad Day

16 Feb

My laptop is broken. No- it’s dead. Its time has come. I suppose it was bound to happen, I’ve had it for over 5 1/2 years. I just never thought the day would actually come. On Monday, right as I was pinning something to Pinterest, everything went blank and a hard drive error appeared on the screen. I showed Jordan yesterday, and all he could tell me was, “that’s not good.” Great. He talked to the IT guys at his work, and they said that there’s a 90% chance that they’ll be able to recover my files (I have nothing backed up- smart, I know), but after that, it’ll be time to move on.

Needless to say, my heart hasn’t really been in blogging this week. I like to multitask from the comfort of my couch or bed, and sitting at a desktop computer just doesn’t give me the same kind of motivation I need to write a post or comment on other blogs. Is that weird? I know I’m lucky to still have the convenience of my parents’ desktop computer, but I need to figure out what I want to do next. If you can suggest an affordable, but durable, laptop, please do! I had a lot of problems with my Dell over the years, so I’m not sure I want to go in that direction again :/.

On a happier note…who’s glad that the weekend is almost here? I know I am :). This weekend, my sisters are going to Alfred Angelo to order their bridesmaids’ dresses, and since the tuxedo store just happens to be located next door, Jordan and I are going to go pick out the guys’ tuxes. I know I haven’t talked about wedding planning on the blog in awhile, but the good news is, everything seems to be coming together nicely! I’ll dedicate a couple of posts to wedding-related things in the future- I have a lot to talk about!

Before I go, I want to leave you with this post from Ashley at My Food N’ Fitness Diaries. If you’ve ever felt self-conscious about your body (and who hasn’t?), then it’s definitely worth a read!


I think we can all agree with that?

Have a great one :)!

    Cane across your blog on a comment section of another blog…. I totally agree about not being able to blog at a desktop computer. I need my laptop and my comfortable chair, couch, or bed to sit in! I read that post from Ashley, too…can def related. Accepting that I can’t keep my high school thin as a rail body for ever is something that I still struggle to accept.

    Wahh-my laptop died last year and I feel your pain. I didn’t back anything up and it was not optimal by any means. I hope they recover your files and be here when you get your blogging mojo. I can agree though-the only time I have a blogging mojo is on my laptop. 😉

    Ughh I hate technology and gadgets. I never get along with it.
    Thanks for sharing the post from Ashley!

    Ohhhh MAJOR bummer about the laptop 😦 I really hope they can recover your files! I don’t back my computer up as often as I should…probably should change that.

    I’m guessing since you’re looking for an “affordable” laptop there’s no use in my suggesting a MacBook, even though I could sing the praises of Macs all the live long day. My family gets Consumers Reports and when I was home for the weekend I was looking at one of the recent issues, and I believe Asus had their laptops rated very highly? Consumers Reports is super reliable, so if you’re looking for some really good, unbiased recommendations, I’d check out their latest issue. I imagine you can find it at a bookstore/library if you don’t subscribe.

    Sorry about your laptop, girl. I feel your pain. I had my harddrive crash a few years ago, and it was a very very sad day.

    I’ve been blogging from my iPad and am desperately wanting to replace it with a lap top. Sitting on the couch (or lying in bed!) and surfing the web is the way to go. Plus, my kids hog the desktop all day and I can’t get on it until after they’re in bed!

    Think hard about a Mac; they last forever and are so intuitive to use!
