Well, this isn't really about pain, but here I go.
I have one more veterinary school application to finish (due Monday). Because of all my issues of late, I haven't felt well enough to complete it until now -- so, yes, I waited until the last minute. I was planning on finishing up the application Sunday & then submitting it via the internet. Well, on Thursday I accidentally knocked my laptop off my bed while reaching for something. The computer seemed fine, until yesterday. As it turns out, the fall damaged the hard drive & it has to be replaced. Of course, the apple store is out of hard drives & can't fix my computer until Tuesday.
Yes, I can use a different computer (as I'm obviously doing right now), but all my information for my application was stored on my computer. Fortunately, I have it all backed up on an external hard drive, but I had no way to access that information without another mac computer (all the other computers in the house are pc's & my external hard drive is configured for macs only). Fortunately, I brought my external hard drive with me to the apple store & they let me use one of their computers to access it & pull off the files I needed, but UGH this is all just SO FRUSTRATING.
The only good thing is that my computer is still under warranty & all the repairs will be free. I am so glad that I purchased the extended warranty when I got my computer 2 years ago. This is already the 2nd time the hard drive has had to be replaced (died the first time at 2 mo old -- due to some manufacturing flaw) & my battery charger died this spring, so that warranty has already paid for itself several times over.
ahhhhhhhh! okay, that feels a little better. Thanks.
