  • Mood:

I'm feeling so productive today!

I'm such a packrat. There's so much clutter in our house.. and I know I don't need it all. I have all this sentimental crap I've hung on to throughout the years, and I generally have no idea why this stuff tends to gravitate together.
Today, I'm throwing away a lot of my old college class notes, and TONS of magazines. I kept notes from a lot of classes I liked. I mean.. why??? I threw away a lot of my old school stuff, but I hung on to a lot of my school notes like I was going to go back and look at them again.. or STUDY. Yes, I enjoyed college. But why am I keeping 2 years of Japanese notes? I'm BAD at Japanese, and I'm not exactly going to go back and study.

I am, however, keeping a draft of the VERY large research/essay on the history of homosexuality in Japan, and the different levels of acceptance in contrast to western culture. It was pretty much a wank-fest of pretentious garbage, but everytime I think about how it upset my Japanese history teacher, I giggle a little bit. And it really was well-written XD

I am also keeping a few essays I wrote for my east asian philosophy course. I dont' remember paying a lot of attention in those classes, but I feel some of these papers that I wrote were genius. So I'm keeping them. And I do read them occassionally when I'm cleaning and I find them. So yeah.

I'm throwing away all my Mixx magazines and Tokyopop mags.. lawl. I don't know why I held onto these. I mean.. it was REALLY cool being able to pick up a mag with sailormoon/rayearth in it.. but I have both the japanese and english tankouban collections for sailor moon.. and I have some rayearth. So whatever XD
Goodbye! Into the trash you go. (I double checked ebay to make sure there wern't some sentimental tards collecting them. someone's trying to offload a huge stack like me and can't even get 6 bucks for them. They're so heavy.. they cost more than that to ship XD )

I also have a stack of textbooks the university wouldn't buy back at the end of the semester. By definition, this makes them kind of worthless. But they were so expensive, so I feel bad just trashing them. But you think about it... no one is EVER going to use them. They no longer serve a purpose other than to keep me from tossing more clutter on various shelves. I won't make any money trying to get rid of them, etc. So it really just feels like throwing money down the tube... but technically I did that years ago when I bought them for classes, right? I guess I should trash these too.
Edit: Out of curiosity, I checked like 4 different textbook buyback sites, and they wouldn't take ANY of them except for 1 paperback study guide book. The site that would take the study guide wanted to give me 5 bucks for it, but have me pay shipping. Whatever XD

Still need to go through the old VHS fansubs.
But hey!! I found a peice of paper with my dad's recipie for BBQ sauce. His is the only BBQ sauce I really like D:

Edit: That interests collage that's been going around. Some of this stuff was like WTF


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
