Why are subject lines so stressful to write??? Moreso than the actual email??

@laughwhilecrying it’s weird isn’t it?

So maybe not everyone does this, but I write the email first, then take like 3 or 4 fundamental words from the email, and use synonyms/abbreviations/acronyms of those in the subject line. That way, if they’re searching for it later, they don’t have to remember my exact wording.

@nthaleph that's what I try to do and usually it works, but I'm requesting to meet with a professor about a specific topic, a prof that my PI pointed me toward, and she wants to be cc'd on the email so I think I'm just stressing because she'll see whatever I write lol
