there's too many emails, as a concept

on a whim i decided to clean out my gmail since it's been yelling at me about running out of space.

i'm two days into it, have 80k messages moved to trash, and i still haven't touched the stuff that i'm wondering if i should like donate to a museum.

i'm not kidding, i have a 2005 welcome to gmail, a bunch of old myspace stuff, the time i joined somethingawful, the time i got banned from pokemon go, and all the “we're closing forever” messages from toys r us.

it's like finding a newspaper from the moon landing under a stack of cardboard boxes full of kmart flyers at a hoarder's house

i want to see how many gb i've deleted so far

edit: 5gb freed up. the whole internet will probably run a little faster now
