    Don't you LOVE when your computer crashes?

    Spoiler:
    BEFORE TURNING IN AN ASSIGNMENT.

    It sounds like something that only happens in the movies, but I was literally fifteen minutes away from turning in this massive assignment and my computer crashed. No worried, right? Auto-save is my hero, right? WRONG.

    I had to search for the file and when I found it, it was corrupted to oblivion. Not a tech person, but one of my classmates tried to open it up as well and had no luck.

    I emailed so many different people, it isn't even funny. I emailed my small group professor, the head professor, and our dean of students. I then texted our actual dean of our school and asked if he could provide me with further contact information of my professors incase they didn't see the emails (with screen shots of the corrupted file WITH time stamp) and was given the phone number to the dean of academic affairs (who said she felt uncomfortable giving me that information, but calmed me down and suggested I rest...lol joke's on her I can't sleep).

    The assignment was due at 11:59pm and my professor said that she didn't know the proper protocol and to keep working diligently and keep her updated.

    TIME TO START OVER.


    Comforting thoughts are appreciated.

    At least my boyfriend is coming back from college today to make me feel better.

    I'm sorry to hear that you lost your work. It definitely sucks when that happens, which is why I tell my students to save in 1)my documents 2)usb 3)email to yourself.
    How long is it that you need to rewrite?

    2,500 words, but it's legal writing so it's incredibly tedious.

    Feel free to tell your students that computers can crash and corrupt their files so ALWAYS email them to yourself.
