So last week was an absolute nightmare for me. We had our first memo assignment for our writing class (mind you, there are only two memos written this semester) and I was making pretty good progress. I'd actually finished my first draft early and was on my way to starting my notes and readings for Civ Pro the next day. Well, long story short, my computer crashed! Like completely crashed, dead FOREVER. Nothing was backed up and literally all my notes so far were on it. Law school moves pretty quickly so I actually had 90+ pages of notes from classes and readings that were just gone. Not to mention my memo that I needed for the next day. So I was in panic mode. It was absolutely brutal trying to remember and write out my memo with no notes and research. Then to make matters worse, the morning I go to class with no computer, I get called on. So I had nothing to go off of because literally I had just lost everything. It was awful ... then my car started acting up. Because of course, while I'm in the middle of an academic breakdown, that is the perfect time for car trouble. Anyways, long story short ... I called my mommy and daddy with all the dramatics and hysterics that my life had to offer at that point ... and they got me another car and a MacBook. Thank God for my parents. I don't know what I would do without them. Other than that, things here have been alright. The workload is definitely picking up. So note to students everywhere ... don't be dumb like me. BACK UP your computer. Save yourself the very unnecessary stress.
