She's a high-energy, hard-working, spirited fun-ball of laughter, talent, and voracious supernovas of friendship.
She's also an animator.
The pay's kinda okay I guess, better than your average burger flipper, but not close to other equally hard working people in other jobs.
A couple weeks back, her hard drive gave up the ghost.
It stopped working like a unionized chemistry teacher getting notice of a district labor dispute.
And leaving everyone else pretty darned peeved.
Trapped within her hard drive are her personal files, past projects, portfolio samples...
...And the first five years of photos of her daughter, Lily.
Just like her mom, Lily is also a high-energy fun-ball of unrelenting enchantment and delight.
Every memory, every image of this girl's upbringing contains a value beyond fiscal measure to Bunni. But unfortunately, sentimentality aside, hard drive recovery centers also have to support their own kids, too.
Backups are nice, but it is most unfortunate that sometimes little things like bills, food, and other important things in life come first. Did it occur to anyone being negative that perhaps said person that this is being done for didn't have the money to spare for a backup drive or extra media?
WARNING! SARCASM AHEAD Nooooo? Oh gee I wonder why.. SARCASM END
I make a fair decent amount, but guess where it all goes? Bills. I have little left myself to use, much less give.
That said, I have little to contribute money wise but I will be signal boosting this and wish all the luck in the world.
And as childish I suppose as this is, For all of you jackhats who have opened your little garbage filled mouths, I have only wishful thinking for you.. stuff that involves fire... or possibly being hit by a bus.
XD I'll direct you to my above statement since apparently I just have trouble replying properly XD. I however will reiterate: Kids are expensive but a worthy investment. Especially in the eyes of a parent who loves them. And they almost always come first.
Really, she needs a big hug. Gotta make this spread like wildfire. I'll let my good buddies know and see want they can do to help! ^^ I would donate right now, but *poof* Paypal= Zero. :/ Seriously though, I'll try to help if I can.
Some of these comments are disgusting me... >.> Just because she didn't back them up isn't a good reason to go beat her down and say she doesn't deserve to get it fixed. If you read the original journal, you'll see that it was the backup that was broken. :/ She dropped her external hard drive, where the photos and other files were archived (my family does that, because it takes up too much space) and cloud storage for that much stuff costs a fortune. And why does everyone have the presume the worst? Not everyone is a cold, money-grubbing prick you know. >.> Losing pictures is probably one of the worst things you can lose... if you lose your house, you can rebuild, even if you lose all of your work, you can at least try to redo it. But you can't go back in time and take those photos again. You can't go back and capture that smile you loved, that moment you'll remember all your life. It's not happening. And if you have nothing good to say, don't say it, because all you're doing is make yourself look like a selfish prick who always thinks the worst of others.
And... now to sound like the average person who can't afford to commission anything. I have barely 205 points, and don't have a Paypal. But what I can do, though it's not really anything, is wish the best of luck and hope all of those files can get recovered.
