Yesterday I finally got around to doing something that I was planning to do for the past year and a half but never got around to: I finally unpacked the boxes that have been holding my CDs and DVDs since we moved out of our rented house 2 years ago. Before getting to that I had to clear out closet space for them which entailed going through some stuff that had been accumulating dust for close to 18 years. For example: piles of Sultan's School yellow math notebooks and pink English and other subjects' notes, a Canon Bubble Jet printer which I bought when I was in uni 12 years ago, stacks and stacks of floppy discs, a Yamaha acoustic guitar which I had made my dad buy for me when I was in 5th grade afterwhich I took about 3 or 4 afterschool guitar lessons with Ms Barbara before abandoning my musical dreams (God, that was in 1983!!) and most pleasantly, my 20 year-old Sinclair ZX Spectrum+ computer preserved for history in its original box in its full 64K glory. All except the guitar went straight to the trash.
I liberated all my DVDs and my favorite CDs, but there's still one more huge box of CDs which I still haven't gotten around to opening.
I don't have the space to organize the DVDs so I just put them in stacks in the top part of my closet.
Stacked three deep, so i don't really have access to the ones in the back rows. Oh well.. At least they're out of their box.
