Yea it definately sucks - specially because my boss is like, "Well what are you going to do?!", me being the editor, I'm holding everything up (does that mean I won't get paid? Yikes!).
Instead of investing and putting into savings and maybe buying some EP3 stuff here and there with art supplies, my entire paycheck (and then some) is probably going to have to go towards another laptop - if I even get another new one.
In all honesty, now that I've lost it - I'm somewhat free to do more things - I went outside and read a book for two hours, yesterday afternoon. I'm taking Spring Break early, it seems.
Anyway, it's a real bummer to be stuck like this - but hopefully things will sort themselves out sooner before later.
We'll keep in touch, folks!
