So I was just doing a long-belated sweep of an old work e-mail account before it gets closed down for good, deciding what to save.
I’m pretty swift with the delete key, and exactly two classes of messages survived the cut:
- E-mails from girls I had/have crushes on
- E-mails from friends or colleagues who I think might one day be famous
Both surprisingly large groups, as I am by nature optimistic.
Also, this may be revealing too much, but I had an Outlook folder titled ‘NYT stalking.’
