I had a nice visit to Wesleyan yesterday. My talk went fine and everyone there was really friendly! After seminar we all drank beer for an hour and then some of us went out to dinner. It was fun!
Tonight I have been in a mood where all I feel like doing is throwing things away. For me this is unusual. My mother loves to throw things away -- Emilee too. But I am a keeper. I keep everything. Em used to mock me in college for keeping receipts, and dried rose petals, and wrappers from things with sentimental value. She thought I was crazy for keeping that kind of thing and I thought she was crazy for throwing it away. I am not as sentimental as I was then, but I do still keep a lot of stuff. Once in a while though, I just want to throw things away. Tonight I filled three garbage bags full of stuff to throw away, plus several bags of stuff to give to the Salvation Army (or Rosie's). It was very therapeutic. Plus, digging through old papers and stuff is always very entertaining. I spent a long time reading old journal entries, and other papers that I had saved from college. It was very pleasant.
