With going back to school in approximately 33 hours (calculations may be at fault due to sleepiness) I decided to make my summer some what productive and clean out/organize my valuables.
Today I frantically looked around to find my enormous bag full of greeting cards I have been saving since I was six. I found them, and was I ever happy I had them saved.
I found party invites, get-well soon's, birthday wishes, eid greetings, thank-you's, valentines and even little notes. These are the things which really take you round and about memory lane. The good times and the memories all preserved encriptions on paper. How I adore cards! I'll have you all know that every little note, every little paper, anything that was given to me from someone, stays with me forever (yes of course that makes my mom annoyed that it takes too much room and looks like a mess.. but oh well!). I have all those cards saved from everywhere. To all those who ever gave me one, THANK YOU once again, I have treasured it.
Two days ago I even cleaned up my drawers and a bag which was loaded with papers, items and God knows what else. It was a mess really, but everything in there was worth a fortune for me. There were pens, markers, papers, pictures, small gifts, key chains, ribbons, gift wrappings.. you name it! The thing with me is, I like to presevse memories..I like to keep things as long as I possibly can.
Anyway, I dumped it all on my floor (starting at about 6:30pm). I started sorting through, reading papers, examining and admiring the small items..and by the time I was finished and the drawer was ogranized it was 2:30am. Yeah, I had a lot of stuff. But the good news it's all organized now, did throw away two bags of old paper and things that were broken and no longer of my use. It was nice trip down memory lane. (A separate blog devoted to those fortunes soon to follow).
Now school's going to start, the final senior year. Whoa.
I look forward to collecting all the more memories.
