DISCOVERIES WHILE THOROUGHLY CLEANING MY ROOM
Context: I'm entering my senior year at Vanderbilt this fall and am 21 years old.
- •Memorabilia and souvenirs from a summer exchange program I did when I was 11
- •Textbooks dating back as far as 7th grade
- •A Pink Floyd CD in a Taylor Swift CD caseHey Dad, I found the CD you were looking for that one time 7 years ago!!
- •The black plastic necklace from Forever 21 that I wore to a dance in 6th grade
- •Multiple iPhone 4 cases and cords(have not owned an iPhone 4 in three years)
- •An entire drawer full of t-shirts that are too smallUnclear why they were put in a drawer instead of donated as soon as I realized I owned so many tiny t-shirts.
- •An uncountable amount of "started never finished" craft projects from when I was a camper(camper = ages 14 and under)
- •A plastic bag from Vanderbilt filled with admissions brochures from when I visited as a prospective student
- •Middle school yearbooksIf you want to endure extreme torture, I *highly* recommend looking through photos of your ugly, awkward phase!
- •Over/under 100 burnt CDsSome mixed, some full albums because I wasn't ballsy enough to pirate music in 6th grade
- •A laundry basket full of t-shirts from elementary and middle school sports
- •Around 200-300 medals and ribbons from swim meets(At least ten ribbons were from when I swam in the 8 & under age group)
- •Multiple sketchbooks dating from early elementary school to senior year of high schoolI kept all of these because it's always nice to be able to look back on art you've done in the past and see how you've grown and improved
