02:10 am - Regaining the path is never easy...
...but it must be done or else you will stay forgotten in the ditch.
Just spent the last couple of hours finally going through five or six varied-size boxes, sorting things and mostly throwing out older crap.
Properly 'flattened' instead of simply 'crumpled' the trash took up so much less space that the second-largest box of the lot (the one in the best condition more-or-less) is currently holding all
the rubbish, and the smallest box (amusingly the only one competing with the second-largest for best-shape) is currently holding everything I'm keeping. The second-largest box, I might add, is holding the folded-and-flattened remains of all the other boxes in addition to the actual rubbish.
The only exception to those two boxes are a stack of 'documents to be shredded in the morning to avoid waking anyone up' which'll take about 5-10 minutes to shred.
But just clearing (literally) a car-load of useless crap from my life is a huge load off my mind. Now I just have to sort and trash all the rubble taking up a largish shelving unit, most of which is organizing all the CD cases I have to ditch dead or missing cases, strip usable cases to hold caseless CD's, etc, etc. Then I can head by the PS, and load up the couple of boxes I have in storage there, and go through them similairly. And maybe after all that, scan all the 'salvaged' artwork I've collected over the years, mostly napkin-doodles (literally) that I sneak out of restraunts. :-)3 comments
