Okay, my laptop screen started fritzing out, but it was manageable. Then a week later it completely shat out. I couldn't take it to school, but luckily I could attach the comp to my bedroom's TV, so I've been working on moving files from there.
Next, my grandpa fell and cracked his head for the fourth time. He was in the hospital for a few days and was just moved to a care facility. While he seems to be in good health, it seems like a lot of his memories and possibly his sanity are gone, so my Dad has been upset, but he's
a dumbass a tough guy who can't talk about his feelings, so he's making all of us even more miserable.
Then, of course, my laptop stopped working all together and I'm pretty sure it's because the hard drive broke. All my data, artwork, reference shots, photos, everything gone. Luckily I made a backup hard drive a couple weeks ago. Not so luckily the last time I uploaded my backup it didn't have all the files, so right now I have no idea what's on there and have no way of knowing right away. I'm currently saving up for a new laptop, but I likely won't be able to get one 'til after Christmas.
Fuck my life.
