I haven't disappeared since my not-so-exciting "I'm back!" post.
However, technology has not been my friend recently...first my personal laptop freaked out - my OS is apparently shot (fuck you, Microsoft), and while my father (IBM employee for almost 30 years and all around great guy) has been working tirelessly to fix the problem, it appears that my poor Lenovo T61 may never work again. Luckily, we had the foresight to copy all the important files on my hard drive before it died completely.
I wasn't particularly upset, since they let us take our work computers home over the summer...of course, mine somehow managed to download a virus within days, prompting me to go to school in search of our head IT guy. I found him, he installed a new hard drive (I don't save anything on my school computer), and all was right with the world. Until the virus reared its ugly head again.
And since I don't own a smartphone, I haven't been able to post for a little while. The last I heard, he was still working on it. I'm currently writing this on another school laptop he was kind enough to lend me (another teacher apparently turned it in when he found a job elsewhere during the summer).
