“I’m sorry, the page you’re trying to reach is unavailable . . . ” followed by frantic refreshing of the website and panic starting to rise. What do you mean it’s not there?! Of course it’s there!!!! There’s a little red circle telling me I have messages!!! I grabbed my laptop and ran to my other computer. Surely this was a browser issue or maybe I just needed to delete cookies – honestly, what are cookies anyway?!
No such luck. I wasn’t able to use my Facebook page. On the brink of the busiest time of year for portraits and my Facebook page portrays me. DAMN IT!
Then it got better. I tried to still be productive yesterday and get a little school work done – SURPRISE! – my MUN login would work. It was met with an error message also. I had a brief moment of anger, followed by a little hysterical laughter. What karmic god was playing with me? Honestly, I felt crippled professionally and now academically. Thankfully MUN fixed their issue a whole lot faster – my guess is my panic was shared with so many with midterms on their way. And thank GOD today I awoke to a full functioning Facebook page again – HALLELUJAH!!
So I’ve spent the early morning hours replying to any and all messages that I’ve missed and issuing heart felt apologies. I was a little heart broken to see my little green icon on Facebook was no longer lit up green for ‘very responsive’. Thank you Facebook; for getting too big, too quick and making us rely on you so much for business purposes – see the sarcasm there – I’m very thankful to be back online!
