My flashdrive has found a new home...the trash.
I realized this afternoon I lost more than my thesis and TWP scrapbook, although those two were enough. I also lost the list of quickwrites I wrote for my other grad class. (Thankfully, I found my rough drafts in the trash can up in the loft.) I lost the pre-survey I created to give to my students at the beginning of the year before I start collecting data. At this point, I have washed my hands of the flashdrive.
