and, seeing as january is almost over, i decided to actually START on the closet overhaul last weekend, thinking it would be a two-hour project.
HA! my closet laughed in the face of two hours.
i mean, every time i took a box of things out of my closet, another box would sprout in its place. "stuff" seemed to fiendishly multiply until it looked like my closet had thrown up on my livingroom:

yeah no, not so much two hours.
anyway! while i am not QUITE done** putting everything back into some semblance of order, the point is that i have stumbled upon a lot of...things.
things from my past, like pictures and letters and stories and tokens, that (frankly) i would like to share.
and so i have decided that, um, i will!
because i figure we all have these sorts of memories (and memory triggers) -- funny things, sad things, plain things, special things, things that remind us of where we've been and how we've changed and how parts of us will always be the same -- so why not share 'em?
perhaps you'll consider doing the same.
*i almost said "REorganizing" but realized that would imply that my closets were, at least once, actually organized. and we all know perfectly well that the day i moved in i threw tons of crap into my closet and pretended it was "organized" because boxes -- the contents of which i'd be hard-pressed to identify -- were "stacked."
**i anticipate being "done" with the complete apartment overhaul by 2009. unless i move first.
