Not Studying

Now I am Not Studying. I had lunch at the MOA today. Yummmm... cheesecake...

So, I've been casually packing when I have a spare minute. I realized that some of my heavy textbooks are not going to be able to go in a flimsy cardboard box. Should I just use my suitcase? Distribute said textbooks among other boxes containing lighter things?

Oh, and I want to add that I think it is amazing how much stuff I have accumulated. I started out with 2 suitcases, a backpack, and 2 boxes of stuff. Now I have like... 10 boxes of stuff. Where did it all come from? Have I really been buying that much stuff? It's true that there are many books I never sold back... and a bunch of books I brought along after various visits home... but this is ridiculous. Why do I need the short stories of Guy de Maupassant? Goethe's Faust? I am such a sucker for pretty old books (another reason to keep me away from book sales and used book stores). Hopefully I can find a cheap bookshelf (or... I could just keep them in boxes).

I just answered some Board questions! They weren't the best answers... but someone needed to give some lame answers to cut down on the inbox.

I just wrote some lamish answers too. And sent some questions out to Brit Boy too.

Here's to not studying! I think I'll do the same tomorrow.

As a pack rat and one who moves a lot I can help with this answer, believe me, Boxes can definitely handle whatever you throw at it, just get some good tape and you're peachy keen. I had a box full of textbooks it weighed so much that it was hard to move but it didn't break. But yeah, I'd dispurse them equally, but if you find you don't have room, use the box. I currently don't have any shelves in my apartment so all my books stay in boxes. *le sigh*

Don't feel bad. I'm a sucker for those books, too.

Everyone needs a collection of short stories by Guy de Maupassant! How can you even question such a thing?
