Maybe I should’ve titled this post “What Not To Do When You Lose Your Work”.
If you’re new around here, (though you probably aren’t) the Herminia Chow blogging style book states: every word is capitalized in a title because she’s too lazy to follow any other rule.
It also states: punctuation comes after the quotation mark when part of a sentence, again because she’s too lazy to observe any other rule.
Maybe one day I’ll publish a post with all my rules. So you can laugh at how incorrect and lazy I am. But at least I’m consistent in being incorrect and lazy.
I’ve digressed because I rather not think about how careless I was.
And surprise, how lazy I am.
I’m usually good with saving my work anywhere and everywhere. I don’t believe you can ever save a draft too many times or have the same draft in too many places.
But this time I had one draft saved in one place. The application froze and when I went back on it, I lost all the work I did for an assignment due this Thursday. Safe to say I had over half of it done. All those hours of work gone in a few seconds.
Life’s fun and funny like that.
So naturally I panicked. And in my state of panic, I told the whole world. My mom. My dad. My best friend. My professor. That’s pretty much my world.
Could I have spent all that time redoing my assignment? Of course. Did I? Of course not.
Let this be a lesson to always save your work many times and in multiple places.
Don’t be like me. Don’t be lazy. It comes back to haunt you.
