Under Way

I don't teach Wednesdays, but I needed to be on campus for a meeting, and I have a ton of prep for tomorrow morning already (why do I do that to myself?).

But I started cleaning up some of the clutter... and then I could see my desk!  And I cleaned up some more clutter, and then I could see the top of my file cabinet.  So I cleaned some more clutter, and now I can also see the top of my window ledge.

I'm not quite sure why, but having redded up my office makes me feel more ready for the semester.  I dumped a bunch of old committee and advising paperwork (much of it in the shredder thingy).  I got rid of a class file from 8 years ago. (That was the oldest.  I kept stuff from this decade, for now.)

Now I feel like I can really prep.

Here's to a momentarily cleaned up office!


  1. Looks beautiful! I love the long desk with all that space. Mine is from the 1950s, steel--the kind made for duck 'n cover in case of an atomic blast.

  2. I love the fact that you used the term "redded up." A useful phrase but not one that I hear much.

  3. I red up my house all the time! (And then I get it messy again.) We should use it more!
