oh, i believe in yesterday

i wake up this morning tired, which seems to be the new theme of my life. i have a gazillion things to do today and after spending half an hour checking my mail and basically wasting my time on the internet, i decided to get my writing finished first. i plug the thumb drive i've been storing my novel on into my computer and for some strange reason i see that it is installing the driver for the device, though the driver has been installed for a while now. and then, because things like to go wrong when i don't have time for them, windows tells me that it cannot recognize the drive and wants to format it. uhh... no. that is my novel on there and i refuse to delete it. i try the usb in joe, hoping that junior was just being stupid, but the same error popped up. and now i'm about ready to just go into a corner and cry about everything. (lack of good sleep will do that to a person, you know.)

okay, so before i go getting you all feeling too sorry for me, i did have a backup of it saved onto my computer. the other day i thought to myself, it would really suck if my usb stopped working and so i backed it up. i think now that that was tempting fate a bit too much. but that copy is missing the last two thousand or so words, and the last two thousand words are where i wrote all the exciting-ish things that i don't want to rewrite for several reasons that i will not list here. since i refuse to rewrite it, i have to try and recover it which will take time and stuff, and i just wanted to write, and now i can't, and this sucks.

plus it's gloomy outside and cold and wet. and i have to make the t-shirts for my brother's birthday on sunday which i know are going to turn out awful because, as i learned last night, i can't draw food to save my life. and i'm just tired and annoyed and not liking today at all.

and the title doesn't really fit. whatever.

    do you click safely remove drive before disconnecting your usb? if not then that could be why it got messed up.

  3. *sends huggles* Try using it in Safe Mode.. worked for me when that happened. If it still has a problem, then my only suggestion is going to a computer shop for data recovery...

  4. I think this girl may be plagiarizing a lot of you work, I couldn't find the exact posts on your blog, but give hers a look; she's been mooching off mine, lujy's razan's, and yours.

  5. Hannah: thanks, i'll try it in safe mode tomorrow. too tired to do it tonight. and i tried using all the recovery software i've collected through my classes, but they only find word documents (i think cause they're the freeware ones) and i write in openoffice. i guess i'll have to go pay someone to do it.

    tooly: could you send me the name of the blog? or a link? i saw one blog that had yours, razan's, and lujain's, but i dunno if it's the one you're talking about.

  9. i'm a fan of the lynch mob idea. it'll get our point across better, and give us a story to blog about. and when i find out which blog it is, i'll be sure to show you.
