Shit, my MacBook fell off my bike.

Shit. On my bike ride home tonight, my bag fell off my rack after I hit a really hard bump on the road. Somehow the bag (which is connected to my rear bike rack), unlocked itself, causing it to fall off while I was riding at around 20mph. When I turned around, I noticed that my bag was missing off my bike, and I road back.

Some guy, in his car was staring at my bag (as if he was going to take it). I swear, some people are assholes here. Had I left it there for another 30 seconds, I think he would have swindled it.

Anyway, the laptop was in a protective sleeve, but it didn’t provide enough protection against the asphalt. I have a huge dent on the corner of the MacBook, and part of the screen is cracked now. This totally sucks because I love this machine and it has been my work horse for the last year and a half.

*sigh*

Now I’m going to have to figure out what to do. I think I’ll have to buy a harddrive to back everything up–I’m glad that I didn’t lose everything on there. Second, I’m going to have to see if I can get it replaced, or at a minimum, sell it off and try to recoup some money to buy a new machine.

Right now I’m blogging from my old broken MacBook Air from 2010. Maybe I should sell this one off too and just put it all towards something new. Or maybe I shouldn’t buy any more computers for a while and just stick to using my iPhone. Lol.

Anyway, I’m really bummed b/c I really took care of that thing… and my stupid bag had to fall off. Thankfully, I didn’t have my camera in there as well. I think in the future, I’m going to keep anything valuable in a book bag instead. I have so little in my life (in terms of material objects)… so it really hurts when I break a tool that I use every day. *grumble*

Okay, that’s enough moping for now. I’ve gotta consult with my team and get their advice.
