I think it’s safe to say my transition to my new role has been slightly bumpy. In the simplest terms, I’m currently trying to figure out how to work without access to any work email. It’s going great.

It got me thinking about people in other fields who don’t rely on email as much. My calendars, contacts, work files, all shared through email. And meeting invites. Which I didn’t get. So fun times.

I’d like to say I wish I could unplug and not rely on email so much, but I honestly don’t think it would help me any. I use a paper planner and like writing things down, but with things shared online, I can access it anywhere. If I lost planner and didn’t have the info saved elsewhere, I’d be screwed. I’m all out of sorts without it. I don’t like that I rely so heavily on it, but what’s a media person to do about it? Someone has to get work done.

But until then, I’m just going to continue to ramble on about unimportant things.
