RIP Laptop (2005-2011)

Hello dear blog readers,

I'm just stopping in to let you know I haven't abandoned you. I am back from my trip, but my laptop has sadly reached the end of his life. It happened while I was in the process of backing up recent files, so thankfully the majority of my data is secure (I know I will probably wake up in the middle of the night and remember certain things that are now lost... but what can I do?). It could have been a lot worse (I keep reminding myself).

I am in the process of figuring out what to do next (read: how much of my money is going to Apple this week...), but until I get set up with a new machine, I will likely be absent from the blog. Thanks for bearing with me for awhile. I do plan to be back in action, and I hope you will continue to check back.

Thanks for the support.

xo, Emily

That's miserable, Emily. My laptop is just about the same age. It's had many computer equivalents of heart attacks / strokes, but it has always been able to be resuscitated (although I lost some data a few times - so I know how groan-worthy that is - I still get upset if I think of some of the things I lost).

I know that it's going to actually die sometime very soon, so I've been backing everything up every other day. I don't relish the idea of having to buy another laptop, but once I DO have to do that, I know I'll be psyched at the... luxuriousness of breaking in a new computer, haha.
