This week the faculty of my program have the unenviable task of packing up almost 40 years of history in preparation for our big move in August to a new facility. The challenge is we only have until June 1 to get it done because the space we currently occupy will need to undergo some renovation. I think the time crunch will be a good thing for me personally, as I have a tendency to talk myself into keeping everything that has some sustainable use. Yes, I admit I can be somewhat of a pack rat. The only consolation I have is a lot of stuff will be signed over to other departments on campus or retired to capital surplus property. I’m really doubting that anyone will find use for six carriage slide projectors and a dissolve unit, but if you do you’ll have to be a state employee to score it.

What say you?
