lost memories

I hate misplacing things.

These past few months have been one big transition back from Japan life to Seattle life. Besides the various material items (clothes, books, CDs, etc.), a lot of things I still have to sort through are of the digital variety - photos, writings, and other files. And despite all my best efforts, something still got lost. I should have known something would happen.

A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Japan from the non-profit Spanish/Japanese organization whose bookmark design contest I had won. They were finally heading into full physical production of the bookmarks and asked if I still had the original Photoshop file I used to make the bookmark. I of course obliged by trying to find the file.

So I looked. And I looked. And I looked. I couldn't find the file anywhere.

At first, I wasn't bothered. Then I noticed that a lot of other things were missing. Somewhere between the transition from moving my files off Shiv's laptop to my new computer, a large portion of things I did on the laptop in Japan are gone - PSD files, some photos, writings, rough drafts of some chapters from my book. It's not like losing my cellphone, but it still hurts. All gone...


I hate losing stuff.


In happier news, Shiv got in Seattle U too. School buddies!


i hate losing things too. :o(
