I have stopped checking my mail and don't bother at all with status checkers. Anyone else given up?

I couldn't quit if I wanted to.  I'm an addict.  :(

January should be an interesting month.  Penny, I'm sure you'll hear SOMETHING this month.

I am, um, hoping that my snail mail box will be filled when I go back to school.
Same here, I finally get to see my mail on wednesday, so hopefully there'll be some news there.

I'm away from my mailbox till this Saturday. The separation has been torture.
I'm just worried that my mailbox got too full and there's gonna be some problem getting all my mail. Eek!

I say this is my last time today about 50 times per day.

I get my snail mail at a PO box 25 miles from my home, which I have found nicely limits my obsessive tendencies. I can only check it when I'm in town.

Unfortunately, every time I do check it, I get excited by how full it is -- and then I pull out a handful of Cooley mailings.

Status checkers have just become part of my online routine - I even checked on Christmas day!  I've always checked my snail mail around the same time every day, so that hasn't changed, but I've become pretty hooked on the status checkers, even Fordham, whose last update was on the 13th!

I'm leaving my snail mailbox for about two weeks coming up, I think lack of access to it will be the best thing that could have happened to me.

I came back up to school to go out with friends New Years Eve, all excited to check my mail - and I had two pieces of junk mail in my mailbox. :(
