Gone

My laptop died-ed on me. Everything inside disapparated. According to the Toshiba guy, my whole operating system just disappeared. There is no way I can retrieve anything from inside. I don't even know if I can get it fixed before I leave for Germany. hai...

I fell down while getting off the bus this afternoon and sprained my ankle. I think I sat in the bus for too long that my foot went numb, and when I got off the bus my foot just gave way. I went to see the doctor at the University Health and Wellness Centre. It still hurts damn badly. hai...

Prof Gordon have sent me another reply which doesn't explain much. He told me to ask Prof Turner. Prof Turner have yet even replied the last email I've sent him, do I really want to send him another email and bug him? I don't think so... hai...

On a lighter note.

I got my visa already. It's time for me to just forget about everything here and head off to Germany, I hope. hai...

I met Prof Farrell this afternoon just after I sprained my ankle and on my way rushing to the IT service centre to catch the Toshiba guy before he goes out to lunch. Knowing that I was going to Germany, he had wanted to introduce Dr Crosswell to me, but I disappeared from his 8am lectures so he didn't have the chance. Anyway, he did introduce him to me this afternoon, but we didn't get to talk much. I had a dead laptop and a spoilt foot to keep my mind off decent academic chats with professors.

Professor Crosswell sounds like a pretty cool guy. I went to the faculty website here and it says that he teaches Military History, German History (1815-1945), Nineteenth Century Europe, Early Modern Europe. Anybody who does any one of those topics are considered cool to me, and he does all four of them. lol~

Hope after I get through this patch of bad luck things will change for the better. hope...

PS: Before my computer died-ed on me I was planning to put up some really nice stuff. I was editing and posting when it died-ed so with everything's gone, the nice things are gone too. Luckily I still have the raw pictures with me, so I can do more editing next time and do a better job out of it. cross fingers for me~

What comes down will go up eventually, that's why they say life is full of ups and downs.

Think your luck will turn for the better.

All the best in Germany!

Leg sprains suck. I remember the first time I had a sprain, I bawled like a little girl.
