It’s been two years since I regained access to this blog, and I still remember that OMG feeling clearly, the day I could publish on my own website again.
Well, I had the opposite feeling just the other day. That sickening ‘dread’ that makes your stomach sink because it feels like you’ve swallowed a massive boulder that’s weighing you down, but you have no idea how because your throat’s constricted tighter than… well, let’s not go there… and your brain is spinning with ‘how on Earth did this even happen’ thoughts. Yup, that was me.
Still is, truth be told.
Because I discovered that my ‘Note’ containing all my login details for every website I’ve used for the past three years,
Note, as in on the ‘Notes’ App on my iPhone 6S.
The one that keeps ALL the thoughts which overflow out through my fingers and into a space which I thought was whatever-the-opposite-of-vulnerable is.
And obviously I must have accidentally ‘deleted’ it over a month ago, because it wasn’t in the deleted notes folder either.
I cried. I argued with my phone (not that that helped). I pleaded with God.
But nope. It was gone.
Lesson learned, maybe? Just start using Evernote like I always promised that I would, even though I find its interface extremely user-unfriendly and even though I absolutely HATE the idea of storing my personal thoughts in the cloud.
Better that, that to have lost three YEARS worth of login details, yes?
Here’s hoping your week this week is a good one, dear Reader!
