Oh, Feck...

This is really unnecessary to post I know, but my external hard disk went all wrong and couldn’t function properly anymore or in other words I can no longer access my other stash of files that I keep in there.

You’re probably thinking this is absolutely not a big deal at all. Well, of course it isn’t when I’ve only lost almost 20GB WORTH OF DATA! There’s a lot of stuff in there; including music and mp3s that I no longer usually listen to, videos that I no longer usually watch, pictures and photos of friends and my family (mostly during our stay in Taiwan), lecture notes from my previous courses, C++ and lab projects’ assignments, the whole Skylark Productions archive (that will not be missed though) and some other paraphernalia that I couldn’t really recall. Think of all those files, unable to be retrieved, lost in space forever. I get really down whenever I think about it.

I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking, there’s absolutely no reason to feel down. But, the part where I think about the files being lost forever is just so depressing. It’s like a part of me will be lost forever, that was how attached I was to those files. Especially the music I listen to, those pop-ish, cheesy tunes are now gone. It’s like I’ve never listened to cheesy pop music before in my entire life. Okay, so I’m being a tad bit of a drama queen, but this thing will definitely take time to get over.

Now, they’ve replaced the disk with a brand new one, and I still haven’t really used it; fear of the same thing repeating itself.
