This morning I had been awake for about 20 min, when I got a text from a friend. He informed me that my gmail account had been hacked, and I needed to change my password. WHAT? That totally whomps.
Let me explain to you the worst part of this: my gmail account is my "professional" account. The one that is paily.smithsonian25 instead of warmfuzziebunnyslippers. This is the account that I use when I am applying for jobs. Not only was my account hacked, but in the hacking the not nice person decided to email everyone I have ever sent an email too. So, that lady that I sent an email to in 2008 when I was applying for a job in Texas (where I haven't lived for a full 2 years) got a hacked e-mail today. Wow. That looks professional.
So, yeah. That's pretty embarrassing. And, I find it interesting that Person Hacker chose the email account that I had for 3 years instead of the account I've had for 13. I changed the password on my old account today, so I can tell you this now, but when I was in the 7th grade and I made that account I was STUPID and made my birthday my password. I know, you're not supposed to do that. However, in my defense in 1996-1997 I was ignorant, and to my knowledge there weren't that many hackers then. I mean, really, the word "internet" wasn't considered a common knowledge word until 1996. I was totally a cutting edge 13 year old!
The fact that I got hacked really is lame. For me the strangest part is the feeling of violation I have. I know it's just e-mail, but it was personal. What did I ever do to them? You should get your nose out of my business and stop trying to hurt people.
Really, why are people mean? I know, there must needs be opposition in all things and all that, but can't we just quarantine all the mean people together? Then they can be mean, and it's their business, and whatever. The important thing is they would be leaving us all alone. That is my wish.
Stupid hackers. We are totally in a fight.
