Like most, I am ecstatic about the coming of spring. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and it’s time for me to do my spring-cleaning. This isn’t the typical spring-cleaning one would associate with this time of year, which is done regularly. The specific type of cleaning I am referring to is in regards to my computer.
I don’t know about you, but at the end of each school year, I find my computer in disarray. I have countless Word documents, folders, music and programs thrown about my computer as if my computer was attempting to make a mess. It seems every year; my computer succeeds at just that.
I find something soothing in organizing my computer’s chaos. I organize folders that specify past classes, current classes and generally overhaul my organizing methods. Someone important once told me that you should never delete something you worked hard on. This mantra has made me an electronic pack rat of sorts, allowing me to possess documents I worked on from when I was in high school.
There is something to be said about cleaning up your computer system. It may seem like a daunting task at first, but once you get to work, time flies. Now understand, I am by no means a type A personality yet I still find some joy out of taming the wild that is my desktop. Use this time of year to get your computer organized and it will make the transition into next year much easier to handle.
