First, an apology for not posting original content more often. (Because I'm sure you all miss it!) It's odd because this semester is so much less stressful than last semester, but I seem to be busier!
Anyway, I have always hated when someone tells you they will call you later or email you something and then they don't. Sure, I will probably miss their call anyway, but it's the thought that they didn't keep "their word." (I'm making it sound like a bigger deal than it actually is.) Well, I've become one of those people- but only when it comes to emailing. I've found in the last couple weeks I've told several people I will email them- and then I forget. Then there's the clearing out of my inbox. This is usually something I try to do weekly. I only keep things in my inbox if it is something I have to do or respond to. Then once I've done them, I get to delete them... well, I have some things that have been in there since the beginning of February and I just keep putting them off and putting them off. And don't get me started on my lack of blogging! I'd like to say I don't have time, but that is not true. I just haven't been inspired.
So I guess this could be seen as a little bit of a confessional or a self scolding blog, but I just had to get it off my chest.
Have any of you become one of THOSE people or do you know one? How do you deal with it?
I thought that that was the new norm..ReplyDelete
