My 2nd gen Nexus 7 fell off from the top of my bunk bed sideways a couple of weeks ago and it didn't break (I fell asleep while watching youtube videos and I found it leaning on the wall the next morning). Then I accidentally dropped it again yesterday morning twice (I was carrying it under my arm and it slipped off before I cross the street and the second one fell off my lap when I'm about to get off the bus.) but still it didn't break, cracked the screen or had problems with the device itself. So far, It still works like nothing happened. The good thing is I had this cheap $8 tri-fold casing on my tablet. Yes it's cheap but it really did a good job protecting my device or I guess I just had a little bit of luck.
"Art takes a lot of energy to make. It’s hard to make art when you are constantly hung over, coming down and partying it up. Artists and creatives take great pride in what they do. You should. Being an artist is one of the hardest jobs there is."
