I am furious. Someone came into our house, selectively bashed my laptop, and left. Didn’t take anything else (as far as we could see). Didn’t wreck any other piece of furniture or appliance. Just had a vendetta for my ASUS. I could scream. Cry. Eat nails….or in this case, gnaw hopelessly on a dead computer screen. I am hopelessly lost and pathetic without it. Usually I am pretty good about backing up data, but there were a few files that I had yet to back up, and so far the news is not good for retrieving data from the deceased. I went out immediately and bought a replacement- same brand. The new computer is gravely disappointing. Windows 8.1 is making me suicidal. I can’t get to the ASUS applications- it won’t let me adjust my webcam. The list goes on. I feel like I am 3 years old, having the major meltdowns that I was never allowed to have as a child. I want to climb onto some cosmic maternal lap and bawl my eyes out.
