Sep '06 - Aug '08
As if the weight of the semester coming to a close wasn't enough, someone had to break into my truck and steal my laptop! What did I do to deserve this? They smashed my window and grabbed the computer. I came back to a pile of broken glass and a missing laptop. It's not as if I were careless. The laptop was in a black bag on the floor of the back seat of my Explorer, with dark tinted windows. It's not like someone just stumbled upon my laptop sitting on my front seat. It was definately concealed. Someone was looking for something to take. Oh I had insurance. Insurance doesn't cover weeks of modeling time, or a sketch book nearly filled with drawings or notes. Of course I had the files backed up. Do you think I would take a chance with the MPC craptops they offer at LTU? I had them all backed up and safe. On a flash drive. In my laptop bag. With my laptop. It's all gone. So as all the other architeceture students are looking forward to a break from the studio, a time to spend with family at the dinner table enjoying Thanksgiving and in front of the TV enjoying football and beer, I look forward to 100 hours in front of a drafting table and a laptop, drafting and CADing to my hearts content. Why me? Why now?
