    One catastrophe after another...

    ...its like a f'ng avalanche of misery.

    My backup drive just got a virus and transfered it to my main drive. Well, thats alright ... reformatted both drives, went out and bought the latest Norton.

    After reinstalling all my software, the backup drive starts acting up. Great. Disconnect the slave, boot up, get a BSOD. Apparently I cant boot up without it. f it, I thought, I just wont touch the drive and be fine. As soon as I start transferring the backup files to my main drive ... I get a cycle redundancy error ... and in the process lose my f'ing college admission demo reel which was basically finished ... 2 months in the making. No SWF backups, nothing. AGH ****!!!

    Pulled an all nighter last night to finish some work for my boss ... just to have him tell me I have to 'fix' another aspect in it...raping me of all design leeway, telling me that I was already supposed to somehow 'know to change it'.

    ... I just went out solo to wendy's today, and as soon as I took a bite, my tooth chipped, and part of it just fell off. Perfect.

    I guess it'd be nice to just go out and drink with my best buds to lay away some stress ... but both of them are doing time. For who knows how long.

    There comes a point where you are just too depressed to be pissed off.

    What did you order at Wendy's?

    I've found that when something bad happens, EVERYTHING bad has to happen.. It's always been that way for me, too.

    don't sweat it man...you are going to f'up way worse as life goes on...just take it in stride. nothing can really knock you down...learn from your mistakes, and move on. i just don't want you doing anything crazy with all this bad stuff going on...

    I lost a 3d demo reel that was more than 2 months in the making. The next day I decided to go into web design!
