Saving Calamity

Years of work, gone in the blink of an eye: the thesis was saved again and again but the last time it was saved, the file became corrupted and unreadable. The PhD candidate screamed and moaned and pleaded with their machine, begged for it to be a mistake. It would take weeks to try to write the whole thing again, which became the only apparent route after contacting every tech-savvy friend they had and told that the file was irretrievable. There was only one thing left for the candidate to do, which was to get blindly drunk and figure out what to do after the weekend was done, which they did in sorrow and silence and several hazy tears.
