I've been told that things like old yearbooks and the handful of journals I started and then abandoned are things I should be keeping. What about old school papers? I've got what amounts to four milk crates of old school papers, mostly from high school. Should I be keeping any of it? I thought, at one point, that hanging onto the subjects I might use again (English, history, theatre, etc.) might be useful, but then I actually looked at the stuff and I'm not so sure. Even my (in)famous history notes based on Mr. Hines' lectures don't make much sense viewed four years later.
Really, I'm just procrastinating. But I'm curious what things people kept from their childhoods, and what they threw away.
