I found a new job in London and while emailing with my soon-to-be boss, I noticed something that drove me off: the constant repetition of the pronoun I. This is very different from my native language (Italian) and most of the time, sounds and reads awful to me. So I started to check online for explanations, but all I could find was people saying that using it or omitting it is up to me. But I'm still not satisfied enough.
In Italian, for example, one would say:
Ho scritto del codice, sono andato a pranzo e poi ho fatto la doccia.
where there is not a single occurrence the first-person singular pronoun.
The English translation is straightforward (and omitting the pronoun is easy to undestand), being this just a sequence of operations:
I wrote some code, had lunch, then took a shower
The problem starts when I'm trying to be formal or technical (I'm a computer programmer): I'm not sure if I'm using the pronoun too much or not. This whole question is a nice example: I could have written this in italian without using the pronoun once.
The following bit is from an email I sent to London:
I should be able to tell you (I hope) on Friday or Monday (both bosses are still out of office) and I'm trying to push this as fast as I can.
I had to use the pronoun I four times in a single sentence. Is this happening because my knowledge of the language is limited, or just because I'm not yet completely used to it in my daily life?
