- I am legitimately trying to get rid of things
- July 30th, 2013
But I have that slight tendency to think "Oh but what if I want it ~someday." And these aren't things I have even been using. They are things I brought all the way up here and have sat in boxes in my closet for the last year and a half.
And I'm not even sentimental about things, but it's more coming from a place of practicality. "Oh i'll use that again"
No. You won't. Donate it.
Like I kept all my notes from my tech program because I thought I'd reference them when I was back in school. I have not. Not even once. But still, recycling all that paper is oddly stressful. What if I neeeed those notes at some point?
And to top it off all, i'm procrastinating on LJ.
So Claire is officially coming. She arrives in Portland on the 10th, we're leaving Bandon the 12th, and we'll be home by the 19th or 20th.
We're doing: Portland, Crater Lake, San Francisco, Yosemite, Phoenix (probs), the Grand Canyon, and then heading home. If we end up going to phoenix, we'll have to loop around the top part of LA to hit I10. So maybe we'll do LA stuff. But neither of us really gaf about LA so probs not.
School starts on the 26th, and I want to be in Chicago by October.
Oh! But the hospital did find someone to fill my position! Apparently she's from the area, was working as a traveler for a few years, but is now looking to settle down again. She's older, but has lots of experience. I'm super relieved. I don't think she's starting until Sept. 1, so I won't meet her, but I'm really glad they found someone. It makes me feel a lot better about leaving.
