I just need everyone to know that I had finished typing up the bulk of the page about the food we cooked and then closed it without saving as WordPress saves drafts as you go. Being a paranoid, stressed out college student, I decided to check and make sure the information had actually saved on the page even though I had not officially updated the public version. The answer to that question is no, no it did not. I could stay up and re-type it but I think that is going to have to wait till tomorrow when there is more chocolate and sleep in my life. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my written complaint about a mistake thoroughly my own.
P.S.S Professors, you wanted to know if there is a downside to composing in WordPress. This is it.
