So, at this very moment I’m re-installing about every goddamn game I own. No, it’s not that bad, but almost. Yesterday my biggest hard drive, the one that carries all my games (a 2TB HDD), decided that enough was enough and promptly crashed. Luckily I anticipated this a few weeks ago when the HDD was acting up and had therefore moved all the important files to other, more stable locations as a precaution. But once it happened yesterday I fell into a extremely bad mood and was sulking through the night. But a friend of mine, caught the brief Facebook-update I made (but later deleted) and told me she could help me out.
Said and done, we met for a fika today and I was gifted a 1TB SSD to replace the HDD that had died yesterday. A one terrabyte solid state drive!! They are quite expensive at those volumes but she and her husband insisted that I was given one as a big “thank you” for all the help and support I’ve given her with her studies and also an early “happy birthday” since that day is coming up soon as well.
I’m a bit bad at showing instant reactions like happiness and gratitude since I work hard to keep a neutral and composed front, but I hope I managed to convey just how much this means to me. I’ve been going around since yesterday with a sinking feeling in my stomach and heart and as usual, I painted the situation pitch black from the very beginning. We really couldn’t afford another expense like this so close to having bought so many other new computer parts. But with this I don’t have to worry, I can both eat the cake and still have it.
So if you’re reading this, you know who you are, thank you again!
