Sorting Stuff Out


I have some storage cupboards which I use for all my books, dvds, cds, and miscellaneous items which have piled up over the years. Whenever I finish ripping a few CDs to my hard drive I take those CDs to the cupboards, and whenever I finish a few books, I shift a couple of books upstairs as well. That cupboard is also housing all the books, DVDs, CDs, and items from my college days.


There are also a few notebooks that I wrote in before going to college which have information about all the upgrades and technical work I wanted to do on a truck I would get during college. I’m happy I have all these items to look at every once in a while, I forget that I have them and when I do read through them I remember what I was thinking during that time and how things have progressed and changed, it also has notes of things I wanted to do and places I wanted to go. Always keeping the good things in mind while learning from the bad. There are a lot of books up there that I haven’t read yet which I’m anxious to read as well, I even remember why I bought every book that I bought, I’m happy that I do remember the reason behind each book and what I had in mind at the time.


There is a bunch of martial arts books that I was reading through in 2001 when I was taking Akido, and Kung Fu classes, it was a really good time and I got the hell beaten out of me. Did my fighting skills improve after those classes for 6 months, I think slightly, and I had one hell of a bruised ego. This was just one of the reasons for those books, and I laugh at what I was doing at the time and I don’t regret anything that I did do.


Its always good to remember all this, I need to go through all the books and sort them out but that would take a couple of days to go through them. I also have to digitize some of the good CDs that I have since I have a lot of good music which I don’t have access to at my finger tips.
