In an effort to get ready for the previously-mentioned Baby...part of the day has been dedicated to going through the guest bedroom closet since the little girl due on June 24th will certainly need some space for her clothes, etc.
This process involved listing multiple items on ebay (2 items), amazon.com (3 items), and craig's list (4 items), and throwing away Boxes (multiple, multiple boxes of papers, old college stuff, very old financial information, and things belonging to the class of VHS tapes and breadmakeres).
One of the hardest things to contend with are the journals. When I was in college some diffrent people really encouraged the discipline of journaling. A discipling I tried to pick up again and again with different successful times, and other less successful times.
People always said I'd enjoy reflecting on who I was, what I learned, etc.
Despite the personal and day-to-day keepsake value of these journals, I really just want to throw them away...what value will they continue to have. I long thought someday I would be famous and they'd use these journal post-mortum to construct autobiogrophies and tv specials, but really again...are these so keepable.
They don't really take up space, but I just feel like there's no real value of keeping them.
In the flurry of listing and photographing items for online sale I've thought...I wonder if I could sell these journals online for some wierd voyeristic nature of people that are simply just endlessly courious.
Who know's...I think I will make a final conclusion soon on the issue of "too keep or not too keep" but I have a feeling they're trash bound. (Unless someone wants to make an offer.)
