So I still have not leaned my lesson about backing up all my files to multiple places. For Christmas, I bought/was gifted a very new, very fancy, very EXPENSIVE Lenovo Yoga 710 laptop. I’ve had it for maybe two months, and ya know what happened… THE MOTHERBOARD FREAKING DIED!!!!!!! It died over break, a few short days before I had to go back to school. After a extremely long and not super pleasant conversation (which mostly consisted of being on hold) I took it in to Best Buy to get it looked at and see what my options were. They are not great. And, I still haven’t been able to even try to get the information off of it because it has a stupid special tiny hard drive that not even Best Buy’s own Geek Squad has the compatible hardware for. So that’s great. But probably what is most upsetting is that I put a bunch of cool stickers on my laptop which have now gone to waste.
Oh, how was my break, you ask? My break was splendid. Visited some old friends. Hung out with my lovely family before they all left for New Zealand after Christmas (with out ME I might add, since I had to go back to school before they planned to return but I’m not bitter or anything). Luckily, I didn’t have to spend New Year’s alone! The family of my charming boyfriend (yep… I have a boyfriend) let me stay with them for the week before school started! They were so nice and fed me a TON of food! And we went hiking on New Year’s day!
Also, before Christmas, I painted a table and chairs set for someone and they gave me money!!! You can look at it on my website: www.creativewakeart.wordpress.com (Also follow me on facebook hahaha. But I’m kinda serious. I even put a link). https://www.facebook.com/creativewakeart/
Unfortunately, I am now back at school. Sigh… Tomorrow is the first day of classes. Yaaaaaaay.
