The great tidy

current music: Rachel Unthank and the Wintercats: 'Twenty Long Weeks'

I was going to do some work today for the second phase of a job application process, but instead let myself be distracted by the task I'd originally put this weekend down for, rationalising my collections of books and magazines, particularly the latter in the first instance. The imperative comes from my forthcoming departure from TGW and the need to remove all my books and files from the office.

The upshot so far is that my living room is still untidy, but there is a different kind of untidiness and there is definitely a project underway. Some runs of magazines might at last be united in their own storage boxes. To my alarm, I still had some copies of Prospects Today and The Bridge, the national and Oxford student careers newsletters, from 1998. They bring back memories of long depressing months and years looking for work, and have gone on the teetering recycling pile.
