I’ve been carving out a bit of time every week to do file away a lot of papers (receipts, statements, work files, pay stubs etc…) that have been stuffed into boxes. I think I’ve thrown away about 2 feet of paper today. I found some important papers that I have to carefully store. There were old pay stubs, pictures, letters, pens, pencils, decayed rubber bands, old batteries, tube of lube which hasn’t dried up yet, old condoms (why did I store that with my old paystubs?) and annual reports. There were also notes from my dad attached to various clippings he thought would be useful for me. There were some Chinese writings from my mom on scraps of paper (order for food) – I can’t throw that out. It’s like an archaeological dig. So once I get these organized, I can figure out what I really need to keep and what to throw out.
Other than that, I’ve been busy booking appointments for dentist, optometrist etc… I want to use up as much of my benefits as possible. My mood swings regularly from high anxiety to a zen like calm.
