The previous post stating the sudden demise of my cell phone was just the tip of the iceberg. The button did not last the expected one month, and came completely off that night. Verizon is being great about it, so I shouldn't really argue.

My brothers cell phone—double the price of mine, was stolen the next day. I thought for sure that was worse than mine being a little difficult to use.

Today, I spent the day out with my grandparents. I was charging my laptop when I left, as I frequently do. I didn't think anything of it, like the electricity-loving-humanity-believing-moron that I am. When I came home, all of the clocks were blinking. I assumed the rain was a little more problematic here, no big deal. Sat down at my computer and could only connect to other networks. Strike one. I was still connected though, as were all of the home computers, so how bad could it be? Well, I decided to take my laptop upstairs with me to play with the router. Strikes two, three, and death. My computer will only stay on while it is on the charger. I should mention that my charger broke approximately one month ago, in the finest of fashions. I went to remove the plug from the wall, when it broke into two pieces leaving the wires exposed. I have been using the extension cord style charger since. Maybe that was my problem.

Either way, the semester is over and I need to get to an Apple store. It is approximately 3 hours away. I assume I will need to leave my laptop there, which I am not ready to do.

Hopefully tomorrow my outlet life support will still be functioning.

P.S. The first two times I tried posting this, I received errors that it could not be processed. The apocalypse is coming. I'm supposed to send a report with my error code and what I was doing. So, if anyone ever reads this, I was eating pretzels and crying myself to sleep. -d00mxd4y5
