I've been pulling a "Monica" for the past week or so.

Geller (from Friends). Not Lewinsky. :|

It started off casually, but given my OCD tendency, it soon took on a life of its own and became one of my mini pet projects.

I was practically glued to my laptop everyday, obsessed with arranging all my pictures into different folders and sub-folders according to the date, venue, and event.

There is something about "organising" that is just so soothing and calming, not to mention satisfying. It's almost therapeutic.

Or is it just me? :p

Now some of these pictures go as far back to year 2005 or even earlier. They were all over the place! So it does take some time and patience to slowly go through, then organise and categorise them.

I have a folder called "Bee-ing Silly" for the pictures of Bee and I just goofing around or some photos that I simply do not know which category or sub-category they belong to.

In the past, I've had a bad experience of losing most, if not all, of my pictures when my previous computer gave up on me. So yes, this time, I'm backing them up too!

Girl's learned her lesson. *Grins*

Both Bee and I are not much of a picture-taking person, which is something that we are starting to re-evaluate these days.

It's true when they say a picture says a thousand words.

And as we age, we slowly come to realise just how unreliable human's memory can be. Therefore, pictures become a very useful tool to capture those important (or not so important) moments in our lives and immortalise them.

I was shocked as I was flipping through old pictures when I was back home in Swan City this time, some of them I have absolutely no recollection of.

I don't remember taking those pictures, I don't remember where or when they were taken, I don't even remember or recognise some of the people in those pictures!

And we are not talking about childhood photos here. These are the pictures as recent as my teenage or uni years. ><

(No, people, it hasn't been THAT long!)

Anyhoo, I'm close to finishing this little mini project of mine, and I already have something else in mind.

And I say this next sentence in the full spirit of Monica Geller -

"Isn't being organised fun?!"
