Mac Crash 2010

Hello folks!

My computer has the grey screen of death and my hard drive is kaput. Along with all my pictures from the past 5 years, my STCW license, my ENG 1 license, my frequent flier numbers, my logins and passwords for countless crew services and web pages... basically my life is in ruins. My job sucks, the weather turned cold, my ex keeps weaseling his way into my life and my house, I don't know what I want to do with my life, I can't afford to take my captain license course, I can't afford rent, I quit drinking, I gained a ton of weight, and I need to take pictures of these fucking flat Stanley dudes but I don't have a camera or a phone with a camera on it... basically it's pretty bleak right now.

You wanted a blog? You got one.

Now you see why I don't write when I'm not happy??? Nobody wants to hear you or me bitch and moan. It's not fun is it? There ya go.

I will write when something good happens.

I do need to write about Fantasy Fest but I don't have the pictures... gee.

  1. Have you tried going to the Mac store?

  2. Jolea - if there's a Mac shop where you are, they can probably extract your data from your machine. We've had that done. Good luck with the rest of it. Anytime now the winds will pick up and you'll be flying along on a good beam reach!

  4. Jolea my Hard drive crashed on my computer too but my IT dude was able to pull all of my documents, pictures, EVERYTHING off of it. Your docs are savable. Someone can put your stuff for you on a disk and then when you're able to get to a computer...(momma) :-)
    You can put it on there to store it and then maybe put it on a new computer someday. All is not lost permantly.

  5. So is that what the Mac store told you? (Heather) can chip in and buy you a new one.

  6. I hope you've learned that you must always back up, back up, back up!!!! I have three external hard drives. My photos are on all three; my important documents are on two; one is partitioned and I back up my entire hard drive (easy to do with a MAC) a couple of times a week. Plus I have a lot of my photos on my iPhone AND my iPod. You can't be too careful when it comes to backing up. One day soon I want to burn all of my photos onto CD's.

  7. Do get an external hard drive when you buy your next laptop. Keep a copy of all that crucial data on it. But you knew that. Enjoy your visit with your mom, lucky girl.
