    I've had too many bad experiences with people

    accidentally deleting my work, my photos, and my program files. Sometimes they'll readjust my personalization settings during their one-time use, leaving me confused and wasting time to fix everything to my liking. Oh and I also had a friend drop my laptop and spill orange juice...

    I'm Not Paranoid, I'm Just

    This is why. Not gonna lie, I have some stuff that I would not want people to see. Some items include angst-ridden poems, suicidal thought snippets, short stories based on personal experiences, some experimental writing too. I feel like people would be freaked out if they should...

    I Am Very Stingy..

    when it comes to certain things. My computer is one of them. Want to borrow my clothes? Fine. Eat my food? Whatever.  Touch my computer without me there? Sure, unless you want all your fingers cut off and fed to you. If you need to do something on it, you damn well better make...

    Warning. Contents Are Toxic.

    I wish that that title was actually true for my computer so that people don't have the nerve to use it. I feel like they're violating my privacy. It's got too much of my personal stuff in it, so when anyone uses it, I watch them like a hawk so that they don't come across anything...

    And Here's Why...

    My brother was over and he wanted to find a hardware store nearby. He asked if he could use my laptop; well, "asked" is being nice, he basically said "Let me use your computer" and I felt compelled to do so. After he found the hardware store's location, he began clicking around...

    Hate It

    I hate when anyone touches my computer.  I have very private files on my computer that I am in-trusted with by my company.  I get very nervous if someone else touches my computer, much less boots it up and starts using it.

    I Guess I'm a Little Paranoid.

    I just think everyone is going to look at my website history and try to find out stuff about me there or they are going to mess with my private files or something.

    Same goes for my iPhone.

    I don't feel comfortable about anyone to use my phone or computer. If I wanted to share my music or photo, I could let them use freely.

    Guilty?

    I am paranoid to a fault about people touching my computer. For no particular reason. There's nothing particularly incriminating about its contents or what I do on here. So I look at ****, and I write stories; who gives a flying ****? But then why does my blood run cold at the...

    It's not that I have anything to hide, its just that my laptop is where I keep all of my venting diaries. And I do not want anyone using my laptop long enough to go snooping through my things, reading my stuff and then questioning me about the things I have written. There are...
