- AP Chemistry tests. These are tests from a class I was failing and dropped out of in high school. Needless to say, most of these tests read something to the effect of 43/80 or D+ at the top; why I had wanted to ever be reminded of this class is beyond me.
- Mostly illegible french notes, as if one day I'd want to relearn french from some smeary, scribbled pages ripped from a notebook.
- Acceptance/rejection letters from colleges I didn't go to.
- Pretty much every worksheet I ever filled out in elementary school. I mean, I enjoy seeing some of my original art projects, but I don't think I need to keep proof I could do basic addition or connect-the-dots in grade school.
I also kept a myriad of notes and handouts from various classes, vocab workbooks, spelling tests, scrap paper I drew smiley faces all over, and this list I entitled "Rocks" and wrote on May 27 of an unknown year (I left in my spelling errors):
- Everything came from rocks
- 3,000 (a little over) minirals 14,000 names
- 9 classafacations witch minirals are grouped in
- 3 groups: Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic
- 9 common Elements: O, Si, Al, Fe, CA, NA, K, Mg, Ti
- 250 named rocks
- Eat rocks for breakfeast, lunch, and dinner
- Glass comes from quarts
- pencil lead = carbon
- kitty litter is made of a rock called Vesicular Tuff because it was absurbant.
As far as I can tell in the context where I found this list, it wasn't actually for a class. I guess there was a little geologist in me as a kid and Geo in the Field wasn't my first introduction to the subject. Also, I like that eating rocks for every meal made it on my list.
