1-10-11 cleaning brain
I’ve been working for the University for 27 years now, and all during this time I have been required to have a home office. Years ago I would only have to spend 1 day per week in my home office, the other days I would be out collecting cancer data in hospitals and pathology offices.
Now, thanks to technology, I spend 99% of my time in my home office. This has its perks, but also has some burdens. One is trying to keep a clean well organized office. From time to time I make an effort to clean out some old stuff. Last week I decided it was time to throw more old papers out.
The oldest paper I found was from December 1983, a schedule of my orientation, when I was first hired. I also shredded several years of pay slips. It was fun to remember what I was making back in the 80’s and 90’s, but what was the most interesting was to compare the cost of Health Insurance.
Something strange seemed to happen in the first decade of the 2000's!
Well, I still have a ways to go with my cleaning, but I have made progress.
