Today I have been at work and there’s been a lot of waiting, which means a lot of time to work on other things – namely sorting out ALL of my emails in my general inbox. This is something I do pretty much every time I come to work, and then allow the emails to build up and then have to repeat the process.
However, today was different. I began my day with over a thousand unread emails. It’s coming up to 1pm and I have none. Granted, I have 166 emails in my action folder that need to be dealt with eventually, but nothing new clogging up my actual inbox. I can’t actually recall the last time I had this few emails.
Looking back over my inbox has been pretty interesting too. I have found emails from people I forgot I knew and had some nostalgic moments too. It’s nice to be able to look back on memories in email form but it’s also good to be able to let go of some of the useless nonsense that I archived in my inbox.
So, my tip of the day: have a clear out! You may not be able to physically tidy things, but sorting out your virtual space is also highly valuable and rewarding.
I spent the last week on work experience at Create Productions, where I did everything from organise my supervisor’s life to audio editing (and many other tasks in between!) – it really was a great week and a wonderful placement. One of the first tasks I had to do was edit the audio of the entries for a competition on DAB radio station, Fun Kids, called Wildverse. With a collection of poetry books gathering dust all over my family home and what some would see as my own odd passion for audio editing, this was almost a perfect task for me!
Even though I only edited the audio, I am very excited to hear the poems being broadcast on national DAB radio and know that I helped create something which loads of people will hear and hopefully enjoy. The poems are really great too and I would definitely recommend listening in to hear them, even if you aren’t interested in my audio editing.
The winners will be announced from tomorrow (Wednesday 20th July) during The Club with Bex, which is on Fun Kids from 4pm every weekday. You can find out more on the Fun Kids website and listen on DAB, online, via their app (Apple and Android) or on a Smart TV! If you want to know more about Create, where I did my placement, their website is here.
