    I threw away all my Econ notes at the start of study leave, today I discarded most of my Geog notes, and I didn't really have any English notes to start with - so throwing them away wasn't really an option. The only entire set of notes that I've got now is History, but I think I'll hang on to them until results day.

    I don't know what it is, but binning all those reams of notes just feels so good. I even got a bit overexcited and chucked a few books in too.

    Anybody else had a clean out?

    Hahah yes, I had a history exam the other day and threw all the appropriate notes away as soon as I got home, piece by piece throughout the evening to stretch out the satisfaction.

    Hmm, maybe I should bin the History stuff too. The only reason I haven't already is because they're the only notes that I put considerable time and effort into making. But then again, I'd rather go on the most horrible course clearing can offer than repeat a year of school - if things didn't go to plan. So I suppose there's no need to be hanging on to them.

    I think when I get the chance I will throw most of my notes away, but that's mainly because they're all one scattered sheets of paper, rather than in books that are easy to keep.

    I'm looking forward to making a clean start and focusing on one subject.

    My mum insisted on putting all my primary school scribblings in the attic, but apart from that (and A2 History) - I have no record of fourteen years of schooling; save for the memories, and some pretty shoddy end-of-term reports.

    I kept all my books up until recently when I was in a mood and tore up all my books from secondary school. Kind of regret it now, but at least some space has been cleared.

    My history notes were appauling. But I did feel a small underlying sadness throwing away the carefully prepared comic sans worksheets.

    All those two years, we wasted a lot of paper (bad for the environement :p: ).

    We should have an TSR A2 bonfire somewhere. It's going to be a big one!
