phone cleanse

ALERT: I cleaned out my phone!

This mainly just involved deleting old pictures, old text conversations and old voicemails. It involved a little nostalgia, a little 'wow I forgot about that' and mostly just a letting go of the past.

Honestly throughout my old pictures there were a TON of screenshots. Why do I screeshot so many things to text my friends? Screenshots of Facebook pictures, random text conversations, etc. Those got deleted. For the pictures I love but couldn't store on my phone, those have been loaded onto the computer. Nothing lost there.

My text messages started back in 2012. And wow. Basically the deleted conversations consisted of the below:
  • Random numbers 
  • Too many group chats
  • Old Friends
  • Old Boyfriends
And the voicemails. So many voicemails from my mom. So, so many. Mostly just a few seconds long. "Hi, it's me, call me back when you get this. Okay, love you. Bye." The generational misunderstanding of the use of a voicemail is too much.

I highly recommend doing this. Not only is it sort of fun to get a blast from the past but most importantly, it clears up storage space on your phone. I know I'm not the only one who gets those pesky alerts that your storage is almost full. And I know I'm not the only one who has been at a concert, or out with friends or had a perfect moment where you needed to snap a pic and couldn't.

A huge tip: deleting old text conversations frees up a lot of space. So you can leave those pics, for a little longer at least. :)
