Day 13 of 25 days of blogposts celebrating The Best Of The Year 2018 #2018BOTY

2018 has been quite a year, it begun as all years do with me saying this as I say at the beginning of every year; “This is it! This my year” as I said the year before that and the year before that and the year before that……

Sometimes life is just like that tough loving teacher who teaches you lessons you need learning and is not particularly concerned with being nice or fun about it.

I like to think I have a good head above my shoulders and a decent brain between my ears with a fairly good memory to remember all the genius ideas I have.

If I have learnt anything, its that I am not elephant. I need to start writing down my thoughts more and backing up everything.

One of my lowest points of the year, coming back from my uncle’s funeral to find out that while I was away;  my laptop grew legs

The laptop thief keep your work backed up

Its so hard to say goodbye; to all the unbacked up drafts which only existed on my laptop, all the thousands and thousands of words and memories which I can never get back.

grief and loss

Keep your valuables backed up, and not just to a local backup hard drive but also sign up for a cloud backup service; in the event of disaster you can get back the important bits and it wont quite feel like the end of the world.

So remember; you are not an elephant; back up your work and Jesus saves

    1. I almost went to someone called Sekuru Banda in Queensdale there but then I decided I didnt want anyone worrying about their vanishing manhoods on my account.
      I use drop box too but I wasnt very diligent in my backup routine an seeing as I had an external hard drive I thought I was somewhat safe,besides uploading some of these files to the interwebs internet access is not quite our thing

    Quick question…where do you get your pictures from? The dude stealing the laptop is everything!

    1. I used to back-up irregularly like when I remembered to, oh yeah let me back this stuff, and backup…. Now yeah I back up on the regular and f internet allowing I let scheduled auto backups run.

      Hahaha a magician never tells …. ok on the real I am not sure where I got that one it was on my drive then I edited it, but I usually find it easy to deal with royalty free clip arts and vectors will send you my bookmarked sites for those.
