Q: “I tend to either act as a data hoarder, but most of the time end up being overwhelmed with anxiety about having so much data. Even when I just look at my personal photos, I just feel impeding doom knowing it can only grow and grow, it will never get smaller.

“I was wondering if this had a term.”

A: An ephemerist, someone who enjoys things that are fleeting, temporary, out of sight and out of mind once they’re used.
