Earlier this week I was informed that having over 4000 emails in my inbox was not normal.
I never delete emails, whether it be a friendly email from a friend, a blog comment notification, or an ad from Kirkland's notifying me of a sale I never delete it.
So this week I began the process of going through my inbox and taking it from 4370 to zero. It is a big job, but somebody has to do it. I have emails dating back all the way back to 2005.
I found an email dated March of 2005 from my mom asking me if I knew when I was getting engaged because she wanted to grow her hair out for the wedding. Little did we know she had plenty of time.
I also found an email that I wrote to my dad begging him to let me drop out of college. He told me to stop whining and finish school. Father's know best.
At the end of my email sorting I was down to 3939 in my inbox. I have a long road ahead of me.
It wouldn't take so long if I didn't feel the need to read every single email, I feel like it is my own personal journal (pre-blog of course).
Does anybody else have a 'junky' inbox, or are you one of those crazies that puts each email in a categorized folder and feels a great sense of accomplishment when you have an empty inbox?
