When I began blogging, I wanted this space to be a haven for people to take a little respite from their busy world. Because of this, I try not to complain too much when life takes its twists and turns.
It wasn’t that today was awful, but when you combine it with the sort of days I’ve been having lately, it was just par for the course. The icing on the cake, however, happened tonight when my external hard drive, the place where I store all of my photographs, ceased to exist.
I know it wants to start up. I can hear it wanting to and trying . . . but no.
It just dies.
I never thought I’d be writing this, that I would be among the ranks of people who lose their precious files from their hard drives, but here I am. I have a Maxtor One Touch 4 with 500GB of space, and the last time I checked, I had plenty of room. I’ve had this hard drive for just over 3 years. I’ve contacted a data retrieval company for a quote and am planning on talking to the tech geeks at work tomorrow as well.
Oddly enough, despite the fact that all of my photos are gone, I don’t feel like it’s the end of the world. This is why there are data retrieval companies. Right? So for now, I’ll share a photo I took over the weekend that I saved on my laptop. Unfortunately, all of my textures are on that hard drive too (I don’t even want to think of this) but the texture on this photo was downloaded from Shadowhouse Creations this afternoon and saved to the laptop. The brushes are from French Kiss and were a free download from their FB page.
Once I get back up and running, I plan on hosting a Giveaway. Because I plan on being happy.
Until next time, my friends . . .
(wish me luck)
