What have happened to me lately..

Grace @ No.21 Thursday, July 4, 2013

Last few days have been caused so much trouble for me. i spent quite unexpected $$$ over stuff that normally doesn't get messed up so easily.  

First, my DSLR memory card crashed while I was taking photos of my brother doing his martial arts demonstration outside. I assumed it got messed up from the heat so I ran to the nearest Walmart and got weather proof memory card. I was so upset because it was only like two months old at the most and not only that, I lost all my photos that were in the memory card. (Make sure you have a weather proof memory card for your DSLR if you taking it outside a lot!)

After when it happened, i came back to my mom's house and realized I need to charge my camera. Unluckily, I didn't bring my camera's battery charger from my house so i had to either buy it for a week or can't use it for blogging and stuff until I go back home. So at the end, I decided to wait a week until I go back home. -this might be a reason why you don't see much uploading on my blog..I feel terrible! 

Lastly, this just happened last night which I think it's crazy!! 
After did some designs for my clients, I was searching web looking DIY stuffs. Suddenly, the screen froze and I couldn't do anything but to reboot my laptop. By the way, i have a MacBook Air. I rebooted it, searched some more DIY and again, i had to reboot. This time I couldn't even get to the login part. It only showed me a gray screen with flashing folder with question mark on it. I tried every single solutions there's on the web (searched through my phone) and nothing seemed working. So I decided to wait a day just in case of it fixes by itself but it was still acting crazy when i woke up this morning. I decided to take it to the apple store near D.C but today is 4th July... Everyone was heading to the D.C. Which means so freaking much traffic!!! Anyway, I took it to the store and the 'genius' over there said my hard drive crashed. Oh okay..wait,WHAT? Yes, my hard drive crashed and decided to just disappear so I can't get any data out of it. Just letting you know , i never back up my stuff. So "hard drive failure" means I lost all my data, designs, codes, adobe softwares,  and some important documents plus precious photos that has my memory in. Moreover, my warranty ran out two weeks ago so I had to pay almost same amount of what I paid for my laptop. I know, insane. To be honest, I just wanted to cry right in front of everybody. I went there with my dad and he knew I need some sweets. He took me to the Cheesecake Factory and I had some fabulous Godiva chocolate mousse cheesecake. Oh yes I feel much better now.. 

Anyway, I'm getting my laptop back on Wednesday next week and thought my design processes will be on hold but I managed to download most of my stuff back ,from my files online and USB drive, on my parent's iMac ;) So, design service will run like nothing ever happened ! 

Oh by the way, if you find your MacBook's trackpad feels weird and looks like it's possessed(clicking everywhere by itself while you try to navigate the screen), you definitely want to take it to the Apple store. I had that issue before my hard drive crashed and I asked today to the 'genius' , he said bad hard drive most likely caused all these problems. + if you have important data , make sure to back up every week...or at least a month.. I learned hard way ;(

    1. Oh yes you should. I thought Mac will do automatic backup but I guess I was wrong. Nothing in my time machine ... Just all gone !

  5. Aw sweetie this is all so unfortunate! I back up everything, especially photos, those are so precious to me and there are places I will never set foot again in my life so those moments I captured with my camera would be lost forever. I loathe MAC and anything Apple makes. It doesn't make sense to me that they make computers without a DVD burner. I have many things backed up in DVDs and it's been ages and they're still working, USBs, external hard drives and whatnot have a much shorter life, I just don't trust them. Hope you feel better soon about all this Grace. Big hug and kiss for you darling : ) xx

    1. I can't manage well with all sort of PC gets and mine always got messed up so quick. That's when I decided to move on with Mac however I don't like the fact that I can't fix up at home just like PC. It just caused so much trouble for me.

      I agree, mine doesn't have CD / DVD burner. But I really don't use those so not a big problem for me.

      Thank you so so much Lau :))
