I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!! It's for a fairly stupid reason, but I am so freaking excited. You have no idea. Let me explain.
Back in December, I lost my flash drive. This ordinarily wouldn't be a huge deal. I've gone through a few flash drives in the past year or two. Except, this one has everything I've ever written saved on it. All of my creative writing ventures, all of my stories for my high school newspaper, everything I'd written for college thus far. And it just disappeared.
My theory is that I went to the computer lab in my dorm basement or the basement of the dorm next door and left it there after printing something. Either way, my flash drive was gone and I was devastated.
So I made it through my winter break trying to figure out what happened to my flash drive. I have a writing class this semester, so I really wanted to track it down or at least buy a new one so it wouldn't be such a pain in the ass to print things. Yesterday, I went to the front desk of my dorm to see if anyone had maybe returned it to the Lost & Found, but the guy who was working the front desk didn't see it anywhere in there.
By this point, I'd given up. I'd resigned myself to buying a new flash drive and moving on. Most of my favorite things I've written are online, so it wasn't too terrible.
But then, today, a miracle happened. I came back from work and checked my mail box. Inside was a small object wrapped in a purple post-it note. Excitedly, I opened the mail box and took it out.
IT WAS MY FLASH DRIVE!!! Someone found it and somehow got it back to me! I am so so so so happy!!! The timing is insane, since I asked about it yesterday.
I am a very happy girl.
So far, this semester is looking good. I have two radio shows (one of which I'm co-hosting with Brad), a position with the newspaper, more hours for my job, and a Lunch Buddy through Big Brothers, Big Sisters. My classes are going pretty well and so far I don't entirely hate any of them.
How is everything going for you guys? Anything exciting happen recently? I want to hear your stories!! Share them in the comments and have a great weekend!
