Do you know how HARD it is to throw away papers from your high school years? I've kept these things for more than 15 years and today I finally threw most of the stuff out. (Yes, I still kept some of the stuff.) What's more is that I know there's a bunch of things in my filing cabinet that I should also throw away. Perhaps I shall do that a bit later today. Or next year. Or sometime before I die. *sigh*
I admire people who aren't packrats. I mean, I *know* that I'll probably never need my notes from high school physics again. But to throw them away???? I must be strong, however. I must throw things away. Well, not everything, of course. But most of it - yes!
I suppose I should go back into the Reading Room and work on another box. And then go through my bookshelves and get rid of the science books that I no longer need. (A trip to the used bookstore is in the cards.) Wish me luck! Hell, wish me strength!
