About 2 weeks ago I cleaned my desk at work. It was looking pretty impressive. But then I opened ped and then I felt horrible about myself. Why? It was a disaster!
I go from extremes- complete OCD about everything in a line, color coded, alphabetized to utter chaos. I was a kid who would write notes during class and then when I got home I would rewrite them in neat penmenship. And then I would file it in order in the class my color coded binder. This really did last until my 2nd year of college and then I realized I was losing sleep over having perfectly copied and organized notes. So now I go between neat and chaos.
-This is chaos-
I took about 30 minutes to clean it out, do an inventory, return some things to our main supply closet, and reorganizing.
Why did I have 42 packets of ketchup?
1. I like ketchup
2. I would always grab ketchup from the cafeteria downstairs when I bought something, weather I needed it or not.
3. I like ketchup.
So, no, I was not going to throw it out. That is just wasteful. This just means I need to eat more egg white omelets and stop grabbing ketchup.
