The worst single thing that could possibly happen to me from a materialistic view point [just happened]

Last night the hardrive on my Mac died. I lost everything. My parents took it to an Apple store today and they put a new hardrive in it but they hardly recovered any of my data. Worse than that, it now doesn't even have most of the programs that it came with, so I'm actually worse off than a clean slate. So now, I'm slowly, failingly, trying to pick of the pieces of my life, which if you knew me, you would know tends to revolve around the digital world. I think I'm on the verge of having a nervouse break down at this point.

aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh! That would make me so mad.

Do you have any idea why it did that?

nope... I was just typing the other night and it started getting really slow, and then it crashed, so I shut it down and it never turned back on.

My parents took it to an Apple store and since it's still under warranty they put a new hard drive in it. They were able to get the old one running long enough to copy off my documents, and I had my music backed up so those things were saved, but I lost almost all of my pictures, which was sad.

I think I'm starting to get back on my feet now though.
