My hard drive crashed and I lost everything I had.
All the memories I had in digital form from my first year of college (photos, essays, music, etc.) are gone.
Perhaps I'll interpret this tragedy as a symbolic slate cleaning of the past in which there is nothing left to do but to rebuild myself in a way I see fitting and move forward.
Alas I must reconstruct my music collection.
Not an easy feat.
