My relationship with my email…

I have an on-again off-again relationship with my email. I’m pretty sure this is a bad thing because, well…

And I know compared to some people (you know who you are!) I know this is just a drop in the bucket. But I get to this point and I worry that I am forgetting something important. I don’t think I am, because I do tend to look at most of the emails as they arrive. Because of this, I’m fairly certain that the majority of this is junk. Or notices that I’ve checked out or returned online from the library. (If I didn’t have the lazy happening regarding my email right now, I’d go and look to see how many library emails there are… I’m guessing close to 50.)

But I do have that nagging fear that something will slip by. Something important. Something I will miss out on.

Because that’s really what it comes down to, I’m afraid of missing out on something important. Whether it’s someone asking a favor, paying a bill (though I don’t look forward to those), or just seeing that there is an event to go to.

However, there is the flip side of the email avoidance. Sometimes I do it to avoid the junk that will just tempt me to buy stuff I don’t need. I get lots of genealogy emails and there are a number of times where I want to take advantage of a special.

Overall, it’s really not that out of control. It’s just a quirk. A julie quirk.

Maybe I should be working on cleaning out my email. {But instead, I wrote this post…hahaha) 🙂
