I *HATE* COMPUTERS!!!

I take it back. I *was* finished my papers. I came to the Bodleian this afternoon to edit the papers and email them off to the proper destinations, and I'm now sitting at this computer about to cry. I had to write two Wodehouse papers for my ISU, both of which have been finished for a little while, I left them to sit so I could write my other papers and come back and edit them after. Well, let me tell you my story. The first paper is 14 pages, the second 13. I finished 3/4 of my first paper and then moved on to my second paper, and wrote the whole of that. After I wrote that paper, I went back to my first, and upon finishing it, I saved it as the file "w 2 paper", because in my mind it was the second paper that I was finishing. Little did I know that I was saving it over top of my actual 2nd paper. And I just found this out. I know, I should have backed up the paper somewhere else, I don't know why I didn't, because I did for every other paper. So, with only the quotes that I have recorded, and a couple notes, I have to sit down and write this paper for the second time. 13 pages!! I can't believe I did that. If anyone wants to pray for me, now would be a really good time to do it, cause I have to get ready for traveling too. I'm going to go cry.
