Project finished

A couple months ago I was given the very unglamorous job of archiving old company files. I knew it would be hard work, but I had no idea how much work it was going to be. Here are the steps I took:

1.) Sorting boxes in the warehouse. Throwing out stuff we didn't need, keeping stuff we did.
2.) Emptying all the filing cabinets in the office. Sorting the files. Throwing out stuff we didn't need, keeping stuff we did.
3.) Moving 45 bankers boxes full of files down a flight of stairs and into the warehouse.
4.) Unpacking the boxes from upstairs and the boxes from the warehouse and alphabetizing all of the individual files.
5.) Repacking the files in alphabetical order.
6.) Entering each file into a computer program so we can find them later.
7.) Barcoding the boxes according to the storage company's specifications.

I've been working off and on on this project since spring. I've been working non-stop on this project for over a month. I finished the project yesterday. I'm feeling so proud of myself, that I just had to share.

Here's some pictures!

There are comments on the pictures so you know what you're looking at. Oh, and my dad commented on it, too. There's also some pictures of my office chair, but you can stop there if you don't want to look at it.

Oh man, I think I would've quit my job if I were you.

I hope they give you a raise, or at least some kind of thank you bonus.

I keep hoping too. No such luck so far.

They did get us all moving t-shirts (that is, t-shirts for the big move...the t-shirts don't move on their own). But all of the ladies shirts turned out to be juniors sizes so none of them fit. When we all got done trading around shirts so we could get as many of them to fit as many people as we could, a co-worker of mine and I were the only ones who had to re-order. But the printer wanted another $30 set-up fee plus $30 per shirt. I'm very disappointed. It was the first time I'd had a hand in designing the company shirt and I don't get one.

It's stressful here today. The phones are being shut off tomorrow and they're taking the copiers. We're all trying our best to get our workspaces packed up. I had most of mine done, but I have to keep unpacking to get at stuff I need. It's very frustrating.

Plus I don't think there will be room in my new workspace for my PEZ collection.

Sorry about the complaining. I'll stop now.

I hate office jobs . I used to work in an office for my co-op. Most horrible job ever! I hated answering the phones & filing. The girl even had the nerve to replace me .

Wow it looks like alot of work. Good job on finishing! Hopefully you didn't get many papercuts (ouch)! One thing about that chair though, it looks like you put paper on the bottom to make it look like a face....or am I the only one that sees this
