Ohmygosh you guys. D: I came home from work last night and found that the cord for my tablet had been severed in half!
I’m not totally certain how it happened, but my theories are 1.) My bunny chewed through it. Seems the most likely, but I dunno, the break is like a clean cut, so maybe not? Or, 2.) The cord was tugged hard enough that it snapped somehow. O_O
My mom was doing cleaning and vacuuming, so I suppose it’s a possibility from that (I don’t blame my mom at all, she isn’t likely to do something like this even by accident, and even if she did, pulling a cord so hard that it broke would have been something that she noticed and she didn’t say anything about it to me when I got home, and was surprised when I told her about it).
It could also have been entirely my own fault, ’cause sometimes I’ll sit down at my computer or move and just tug on wires all the time accidentally. Still, it would take some serious force to pull a cord in half, and I think I would have noticed, I guess?
So anyway, I’ve already ordered a new one and it’s on its way (Amazon is actually selling them right now for cheaper than Wacom’s listed price, plus there just happens to be a deal going on with free shipping), but I’m still bummed about this because it puts a damper on my plans to get some introductory comics and doodles churned out for this place within its first week of opening.
Talk about poor timing, huh?!
BUUUUUT all is not totally lost. I’m going to be spending the next few days filling up the art and portfolio pages with older art and fan art (previously, I had not shared fan art on this site at all, so I’m going back through allllll of my old art to make thumbnails and pages for each of them). So we’ll be seeing an influx of that going on!
So, this ended up being a blessing in disguise, because catching up on all of my art that I hadn’t added here yet was probably going to be something I would have procrastinated on for weeks if this didn’t happen! XD
Let’s hope strokes of bad luck like this don’t turn out to be a regular thing!
‘Till next time, sweeties! xoxo
