starting now.

image from blog.beliefnet.comThis one was not already on the “goals + aspirations” list, but I am making the executive order to add it post-haste; mainly because it’s a massive pet peeve I have about myself… To become a kick-a email corresponder… yes, you read it correctly… I am going to reallyreallyreally work on my email correspondence with the 30+ people I speak to mainly via this medium… I am terrible at it. I adore the “starred” label in gmail… it had became my best friend over the past year. I luuuuuuurves it… but the whole process of flagging it + putting it into a folder of “I will respond to these” becomes a “whoops, 69…14 days have passed + I still need to email this folks back” folder. And its completely unintentional. Its quite pathetic actually… for the amount of time that I spend on a computer daily, I really don’t have much of an excuse other than “it slipped my mind”. Terrible. And for that I owe all of you an apology that have/are currently awaiting replies from me…

Along with this, I am going to get so much better at being a “home-away-from-home” friend with all of my buddies who have either moved away, are traveling overseas, or just are next to impossible to make schedules collide… I have so many people that I would adore to be able to have near day to day contact with… specifically my dearest L ,over in Hong Kong – her emails brighten my days + make me giggle like a 14 year old schoolgirl. And C, all the way over in Honolulu – I really have dropped the ball on responding to her email… 4 days ago… haha… As well as my dearest S, who abandoned the America’s to date some hot guy with a killer Aussie accent… ok,ok, she didn’t move over there for that… but it ended up happening… And I really miss hearing all about her adventures down under.

I can’t even remember the last time I sat down to write a letter with paper + pen…
