Lighting Up The Christmas Tree

Posted on November 21, 2007 at 15:29 Down the Drain

Last night we had this activity in the dorm in which each room is to have a customized pasabit to the Christmas Tree — something that has a picture of the four residents in the room. I never thought it’d be as funny as it turned out to be. There were many “Oohs” and “Wows” for those who really put up effort in their decoration while humor has it for those who, let’s say, didn’t put any effort at all. When everyone was done, the lights were turned off and the Christmas lights on the tree were lighted. It looked really nice. Following that activity was a 1-hour Open House (an activity where everyone is gained access to all the wings of the dorm i.e. boys can go to the girls’ and vice versa). We ‘toured’ the dorm starting from Room 1. When we arrived at Room 7, Shiela was jokingly (perhaps? Lol) trying to mess its door decoration. See, for some reason, she always calls the people residing there “flirts.” But that doesn’t mean the offensive one, so to speak. It sure was funny. When we came to our room, the Room 7 girls were already there and I saw Carmen peeking at my cabinet! Then the others locked us up and when we opened the door, Carmen did very funny gestures as know. Haha. The night would’ve been perfect, until..

I clicked on the cool (yes, that’s the word) avatar I recently made which was stored in the 2GB Transcend JetFlash USB Flash Disk. But then, it said, “Preview not available.” What? The next instant my files were already being removed one by one, by some ghost inside the computer I presume. With no other option left to do, with all those freakin’ weird files around the disk, I formatted it without further hesitation. I am glad that I was able to have a backup of the files in the computer. It was before the semestral break though. And then, I just remembered the HXH mangas I downloaded!! *sigh* I had it copied to my desktop a few days ago pala. So what was lost was basically the newest chapter I mentioned in my previous post. This is the second time that it happened. I don’t know for what reason, is it the flash disk that’s becoming sick? The first time was when a classmate borrowed it to transfer some files. When she returned it, dead. Last night, before I realized it, the computer was playing music, which means that someone did it while I was away. It was strike two. Then again, could one easily do something like this? I don’t even suspect it to be a virus at all.

    don’t trust flash disks so much. kakambal na ata sila ng mga viruses eh.

    btw, nice layout and please change my link. moved to a new domain. >.<

    I’m using CDs as my backups as I don’t have a USB flash disk. The one where I stored all of the videos I got from YouTube is not working. I can’t access them. It’s a really stupid mistake. I just hope the CD would work with other computers.

    That sure is creepy. That’s the good purpose of having a back-up ~ The only problem is when you don’t update it often.. Poor HxH. ^^;

    You live in a dorm? Heehee! I didn’t know.. How is it like? o__O; We decorated my cousin’s house right after the All Saint’s Day, it must be fun living in a dormitory.. XD
