Ahahahaha so life was good. And then things happened and now I'm like, fml fmlfml fml.

THE GOOD THINGS FIRST.
- Yay advisor. I still need to email my old lab.. and clean out my office... and yknow.. make it official with the bio office. But it is a start.
- I am almost caught up with the Matt Smith eps of Doctor Who. I just have to catch up on s6 (have only seen the TARDIS ep)
- I WAS PEER-PRESSURED INTO STARTING TORCHWOOD. After Children of Earth (and everyone on my flist crying for like a month) I swore I would never watch it. Except then I watched the first two eps and damnit, I like it already. sigh.

OKAY NOW ALL THE TERRIBLE THING(S)

Last night I went to bed with my laptop on, as usual. I woke up to a black screen and an error message telling me that harddrive failure was imminent. AWESOME.

Step One: I cried for like fifteen minutes.
Step Two: I tried to restart and was told that there was no media and that my computer could not find the operating system.

You have to realize that I bought a 2tb external harddrive for back-up.. and then have not actually used it in months. #failure

After a lot of crying and re-setting up of old laptop (thank goodness I have kept it around) I decided that my harddrive was dead. So I just got back from best buy with a harddrive dock and a new laptop drive ($125 I definitely don't have). Fortunately, the dock is working fine and I have access to everything on my old drive, so I am backing up now. Going to try throwing the old drive back into my laptop before I open the new one, just in case. At any rate, I don't have any system disks to format my new drive (Damn you Dell) so this is going to be.. interesting.

AND TO THINK, I WAS GOING TO HAVE A RELAXING DAY TODAY.
