I'm safely in America, my computer not so much

Well, I've made it in one piece to America. The reason I haven't posted for the past few days was thankfully not because I was dead.

It was, however, unfortunately because my computer is completely dead. If you remember, I've been having computer issues since last October, at which time my logic board died and I had it replaced. It turned out what my computer has is part of a recurring issue with MacBooks that were made at that time, and it continued to have problems with the graphics card any time I did anything heavy-duty visual-oriented, causing the computer to crash if I used Photoshop, Tumblr, or any sort of DVD player, among other things. It was totally frustrating, and I've been waiting to get to America to get my computer in to an Apple Store so I can make icons and desktops again, among other things.

But the whole process was expedited a bit when I got back from the airport and tried to boot up my computer again and it wouldn't boot. I took it in on Friday, and found out that not only is the graphics card dead, but so is the hard drive. Thank god I backed up before I left Japan, but I left my backup in Japan, because I was afraid of losing it in transit... So of course then it turns out my hard drive is dead OTL But I'm getting it all fixed for free even thou I'm out of warrantee, thank god, so I'm just waiting right now to hear back from the Apple Store.

So for the time being, I don't really have regular access to posting, commenting, etc, in LJ. I'm using my iPad to update right now, but it's pretty difficult. I'm really sorry to everyone waiting on replies to comments, but I'll definitely get back to everyone after I get my computer back. If you need me urgently, if you send me a PM, I'll get an email notification, and I can get back to you as soon as possible.

I'm sorry for going MIA >___< but for now I'm safely in America and I'll be back in action as soon as I get my computer back!
