Cleaning my locker yields no noticeable improvement. Even now, when I straighten up my locker it only looks okay till I need to take the first thing out of it.
The most disorganized organization area is my 'correspondence.' I am currently keeping carbon copies of all my letters. The ones I type I simply save the draft so that does not waste any paper.
The handwritten letters I have been doing carbon copies of those. I will probably type them out to save space and to give me a neater archive. I do not think I will go through the expense of using the ribbon even though that would aide in the possible OCR scanning down the road.
Since I have been expecting some letters, I was obviously very bummed out at the lack of any mail, except your letter, last week. Okay I was thinking today might bring some of those promised new pen pals but....

Music and concentrating. That is where the classical station comes in handy. Long periods of music, minimal talking.
Price of gas. I hope it comes down, Mom and Dad are supposed to come up this weekend. I feel bad enough with the time, hotel cost etc. But also agree that the oil companies have done the old two steps forward, one step back price increase a number of times and I do not know what the answer is.
