I use Open Office software on my work computer for word processing. I wrote an article that is supposed to be published in a magazine and is due today. I had it perfect and the only reason I didn't send it on was to re-read it a few times over the course of the evening and to look for a photo to accompany it.
My laptop battery is dead and somehow the cord got knocked loose, shutting my computer off. I hadn't saved (I know, I'm an idiot) but wasn't too freaked out since Open Office does an awesome job recovering whatever was left up.
It recovered everything...but the freaking article. I could cry. I even turned my computer off 3 more times hoping this was some April Fools' joke from my computer, but the article is nowhere.
It has to be somewhere, right? WHERE? Please tell me so that I won't have to kill myself today. I am too tired to re-write and I really, and I mean REALLY, need to pack.
