I just need some support right now. I'm not really looking for advice, because frankly I can't do anything about this now and I just can't deal with it yet either.
Remember how my week was already super insane? I've been on spring break, but it's been full of interviews and papers and interview prep, so it's been pretty stressful. And I'm coming home to two midterms and two interviews. So this week was already looking stressful. And I was finally 75% of the way done with a paper that had taken me forever to start, and...my computer won't recognize my hard drive. Which means it's either dead or something came loose, but I don't know which one it is and I can't even try to back up my data until I get home and my friend can help me or I can take it to a local place, so I don't know what the damage is, but there's so much on there I stupidly never backed up. The paper. My resume in word format (because I'd only been sending it out in pdf format). The tables for a paper I'd been working on for my boss. I KNOW I should have backed it up. I used to back up my whole hard drive religiously, and then j got lazy because nothing ever ever ever happened to it and I just don't know what to do and I'm basically in shock.
And I don't have a computer right now. I'm in the middle of all these midterms and I'm supposed to contribute to a group study guide and I don't have a computer. And I can go to the school library, but it's a 20 minute drive from where I live, which isn't terrible or anything, but still. I'll have to be on campus all day and I hate that and I'm just so stressed out and I have a cold that won't fucking go away and I've had a sore throat for a week.
I'm sorry, this is like the whiniest post ever. I just needed to talk to someone.
