Single Status Update
Well, that just happened.
My laptop was stolen. I live in a neighborhood that experienced a string of robberies, and according to the landlord... this wasn't the first time.
They actually visited this house I'm staying at before, but the first time around, they only stole $200, and only because the landlord forgot to set the home security alarm.
Second time around, they found my laptop inside my backpack. This was a repeat visit that allowed them to turn the place upside down, and apparently they found my fourth most-valuable possession.
Both times, they entered when no one was in the house. I'm certain the house is being watched by the criminals. Looking back, after the first break-in, I should've seen the red flag and take my laptop with me wherever I went.
I'm dissapointed, but not devastated. My friends are offering me options right now that I'll take time to consider.
Good news: My PC was spared. I think the criminals must've underestimated its value. I'm still fortunate enough have a decent enough job that I should be able to replace my laptop within 2 months of my disposable income. My Doom project is secure in the cloud, so yeah.
Note to self: $400 a month in rent always comes with some kind of catch. Fuck.
First thing tomorrow: move my PC back to my parent's place.
