Apparently dA inserts this giant empty space in my journal if you get here from your message center. Just refresh and it'll load properly. Not sure what causes that. . . [EDIT]
: Hi all! I wanted to update this journal to tell everyone that the person who found my Surface gave it back to me! Luckily, she found it within 30 minutes of me having left it accidentally in the bathroom last night. She said she had left a note on the mirror with her phone number for the owner to call her but I suppose the cleaning crew may have removed it. After receiving no telephone call by mid-afternoon, she took it to security who told her my name. She was really nice and the story she told me about it was really pretty funny. I'm glad that the person who found my tablet was a good person. I have everything back in my possession now.
The excitement was so intense that I had to resist the urge to spike my tablet like a football.
I want to thank everyone for your support. I posted this journal just because I was moping around and I really didn't expect to get some of the reactions I did. Some people offered to assist me financially in replacing my device and I want you to know that really, truly warms my heart. I really appreciate all of you and I may sound like a broken record now, but you guys are the reason I stay here. Thank you for being so sweet, caring, and supportive of me even if I don't get to post very often. ;o; It means the world to me.
Hello, everyone. I am depressed today. I am pleased that everyone seems very excited to receive a holiday card from me. One person even asked me to draw one of my own characters in the card instead of theirs ;o;. I have created a very specific timeline to draw my ass off and try to as many people as I can a card with a drawing in it. Yesterday, I brought my Surface
to work so that I could carry my art supplies in the case and draw during lunch. When I got home, I realized I didn't have it, so I did some sketches instead and decided to come to work an hour early today to ink them. And then I realized that I left my Surface in the women's bathroom yesterday on the way out.
It's not in the bathroom anymore. I talked to the receptionist in both buildings. No one has turned it into reception or security.
I'm depressed about this not only because it's a $500 tablet, but also because all of my colored inking pens were with it and I can't do these drawings without them. Some of the drawings were in there too.
My coworker thinks she has a set of the pens I was using for these and may be able to save my life and let me borrow them to get these inked, but I'm still upset about it. I hope someone turns in my tablet soon . . . I don't expect you guys to do anything about it but I suppose I just really needed to tell someone.
