It's been almost 6 years since I graduated from college. Yet, I still have boxes and a file cabinet drawer FULL of college papers, projects, tests, notes, etc. Why do I have it? I ask that myself now that I remember I still have it. It's yet another pile of stuff that I haven't gone through to weed. But, they're not just completed projects, they're memories. Does anyone care now, however, that we did a fake audit of Starbucks, or did a marketing profile on a little company called Xypoint (which turns out, got bought by a larger company)? I doubt it. I put a lot of work into college. Perhaps not as much if I were not working or not in a serious relationship, but I did the best I could considering the circumstances. (I didn't graduate cum laude, but I came pretty close. Right now, however, I see that unless I expect to be some corporate big shot, it really doesn't matter. It's more about the people you know and talking a good game. Really.)
Anyone out there with tons of school day stuff? I don't know what to do with it. I'm thinking of taking the stuff out of the file cabinet and put them in boxes. But other than that, I'm not sure if I can part with them. I'd like to someday think I'll have to go through them for one reason or another. The same reason I still have a lot of my texts, though my Intermediate Accounting text has a firm place in my work office. And I could throw away my GAAP Guide, it's woefully out of date. Along with my tax book...
How easily it is to accumulate, how difficult it is to let go.
