- Back up my computer
- Clean my room
I asked for an external hard drive for my birthday after hearing one too many stories of people's computers dying on them after 3 or 4 years of use right after they had finished a huge paper. Having bought my computer right after graduation from high school I'm nearing my third year of use and I don't want to take any chances - especially with the 5000 plus photos I currently have on it. Today I went to set it up and it took over 2 hours or so to figure out how to do it after the box advertised easy, straight-forward installation. I probably used up many minutes on my phone talking to my dad trying to figure out what I did wrong. It turns out it would have been much simpler if I had done things in the correct order and hadn't skipped steps (something I didn't realize I was doing as I thought it had already done it automatically when I plugged it in... I never claimed to be computer savvy), but once things were straightened out it was in fact quite easy.
Now almost 5 hours later I have a backed up computer... but an equally messy room - though most things did move location. I guess you can't do everything in one day. The room will have to wait until tomorrow.
