5.24 Pain - Technology Woes

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the twenty-fourth day of each month is "Pain."
****************************
Do you know how many times I saw THIS today?
More times than can be counted on both of my hands.  And that was all before 11:30 this morning.

Technology failures (neither my email nor the course management system were working this morning and my desktop was freaking out about something) were a standard for me this morning and even right now, as I type this, I can't get my email account to let me send attachments and it's possible that I'm gritting my teeth and just barely preventing myself from screaming. Eventually I just manually shut down my desktop at school and came home. Fuck it all.

What a pain in the ass.

It's a strange problem to have. I'm lucky to have access to this technology at all, but my job requires me to use technology and when it's not my fault I can't do my work, it just pisses me off.  I have a headache now and I'm going to take some Advil and down a gallon of water and when I come back to my computer, everything better be working appropriately or I'm going to do some physical damage.

  1. My computer kept restarting itself today, too! Weird. (If you see this twice it's because the computer keeps acting up!)
