based on what i keep finding in different corners, drawers, old purses, these are the things i apparently have a hard time letting go of:
friend’s music, regardless of quality
pens or any other sort of writing mechanism
conference name tags
items related to september 11 including publications from the days/weeks after, a shot glass with the twin towers on it, and a framed photo of my sister and i with the towers in the background
things to smoke from
fantastic purses, each with a toothbrush, nail file, tissues and quarters
gifts purchased for others including chopsticks, sake sets, tea, wallets, and postcards
matches from restaurants i love
pay stubs and receipts faded past any usefulness.
french language course dvds. merde.
shoes i don’t really like or feel comfortable in
images i think are beautiful. i have boxes of pictures i have cut out of magazines, pictures, art postcards
journals and paper, notebooks, construction paper, post-its, random scrap paper i have written “genius” ideas on, thank you cards
old business cards with my name on them that i have no intention of using, and the business cards of people i likely won’t follow up with.
this week i am letting 90% of these things go.
shed, shed, shed!
