It turns out they don't have the helpful cart for moving things this year, so instead of loading things on the cart and taking the elevator, I had to carry them down three flights of stairs. I think my arms fell off, during the third load of clothes.
Discussion Question: Why do I have over sixty pairs of socks? On average, I only go through three pairs of socks a week. I don't need fifty-seven backup pairs. But somehow, despite the fact that I have not purchased a single sock in over a decade, I still have enough socks to supply a small army.
I went back home to my parents' house, and surprise, surprise! They were having a garage sale on Saturday, and they wanted donations from me. So I went through all of my clothes and got rid of the ones I am probably never going to wear again. It was a really interesting experience for me to see all of my clothes at once, because I was immediately able to determine a trend when it comes to what clothes I buy. Specifically, all of my shirts can be divided into three general categories.
- Joke/novelty shirts
- Shirt with the logo of a local sports team on it
- Free T-shirts I got from random places
The only clothes that made it through the garage sale purge was, of course, the mountain of socks. My sock drawer is now filled with socks, and the overflow socks form a small pile, which is about a foot tall, on top of the dresser. These socks will not go away. Whenever I try to get rid of one sock, they sing the Sock Musical song from Pajama Sam 4:
I also went through various other things I own that I don't need, such as my Nintendo 64. I felt bad getting rid of it, but I don't think I'll play those games ever again. I still have to go through all of my books, but I'll save that for another day.
