Getting paper from the storage room is the bane of my existence. The colored paper and card stock has all been lumped together and shoved in a corner next to a bowl of rat poison, and every time I need more paper I have to ask someone for the storage room key and go rifle through reams of paper. More often than not, what I need isn’t there and I have to settle for whatever I can find. I look forward to the day I can order what I need instead of searching through moldering papers that are bursting out of their protective wrappers and curling in the humidity. It seems like half the paper there is a bright orange shade that nobody will ever want to use. It’s been sitting in there for over a year in the damp and mildew, (not to mention rats), and at some point soon I think we should cut our losses and start ordering paper instead of poking around a pile that Scott bought on eBay in an online bidding frenzy. We could donate the remaining stash to the Montessori school or some other organization. I foresee a day in the not too distant future where I’m lugging misshapen reams of paper from the storage room through the snow and wind; it’s not something I look forward to doing.

September challenge - a post a day
My friend Angelica is doing a challenge this month - write every day, even if it's just a sentence.

At the very bottom of the self-review sheet is a section titled "Employee Comments and Feedback". This will be a true test of my supervisor's sense of humor, among other things. Here's today's entry for the September challenge:
