Today I backed up my computer's hard drive, then went and sold all my CDs. Before that I had gone through them and made sure they were all ripped onto iTunes, feeling odd and protective as I handled them--I chose these (I thought); why am I getting rid of them? I felt lost and panicked. But then I didn't. I don't want to say how much money I got for them, because the number is a ridiculous $.xx on the dollar, but I'm glad I got something. It was a thrill to get rid of my floppy inadequate Ikea media storage.
p.s. I kept the opera CDs.
