Stuff in My Drawers Day

I regularly thin the population of my file cabinets to make room for new useless junk. On Wednesday, I came very close to trashing 2 1/2 inches of awards and certificates from elementary school through college, some of which I highlighted in this post. I ended up keeping them at the behest of Rebecca, since we figured that they would be a good way to develop complexes in our future children.

Among the things which did not make the "save for later" cut:

  • Back issues of the Boy Scout Troop 131 Newsletter, The Buffalo Chip.
  • Black and white photos showing an absence of wildlife in Huntley Meadows Park, taken for the Nature merit badge.
  • Triplicate copies of college applications for Virginia Tech, UVa, James Madison, and William and Mary.
  • Virginia Wine brochures from 2008 and 2009.
  • A collection of student evaluation forms from Florida State (called SUSSAI forms because SUSSAI sounds like SUICIDE, and the instructors can probably recognize your handwriting) which spend more time bashing the Practica Musica ear training software than discussing my teaching.
