What have you been promising to throw out for years that you just cannot seem to part with?

I have approximately 50,000 pieces of paper - little scraps of paper with thoughts on them, as well as big sheets. It's insane. Every few months I try to purge but just get discouraged.

Books. I hardly read much any more because I have about fifty other things I'd prefer to do before cracking open a book each night, but I still have all these old books from college, high school, or earlier, dumb stuff that would draw zero bids no matter how many times I tried to auction it off. A good many of them are college textbooks that the fucking bookstore only offered a quarter to buy back because they could, and I thought the book was worth more in my collection than a quarter but I turned out to be wrong.

I remember selling books back at the end of the year senior year and being told by the kid at the register - "It'll be about $12 back?" I was like, give it to me. That's beer money. =)

Selling back books was never a good deal at Bradley. We got practically nothing, and sometimes they wouldn't even take the book back, since they tried to buy new editions every year. Jerks.

I think I had one lucky semester like that, where I got fifty bucks or something. But as the semesters went on and my schedule got filled more and more with lit classes (using many small paperbacks instead of one thick hardcover), the return got smaller and smaller. I would take twenty books to the WIU bookstore and get offered three bucks for the set. At least they offered something; Anna's right, Bradley frequently turned away books.

Computer Game Review: Zoo Tycoon

Here I am about to review the new sim game, Zoo Tycoon. I am not one who usually does reviews, but I’ve been playing this game incessantly, and while I think I like it overall, there are some things I have issue with as well, which should make for a good balanced review. Go »
