I have 2,431 pictures on my iPhone and I've only had it since this summer. I receive approximately 3 pop up alerts every day that my phone has not been backed up to the iCloud in 134 days (and counting). I'm kind of a digital mess.
Today, I decided to make a cursory glance to see A) what was taking up so much space and B) what I could delete, if anything. Notice that backing up my phone wasn't the go-to option here, making the alert go away was. Baby steps.
What I found on my camera roll... was not what I had hoped. Rather, it was a running commentary on randomness, pop culture, and my appetite. Below are some pictures that didn't make the cut, for obvious reasons. Some are pictures I took, others are screen captures. Most of them were texted and shared to family members or friends. Lucky them.
The story you are about to be told is not a flattering one, but it is a story nonetheless.
On with the show!
This picture of my Meijer shopping cart at Halloween (yes, I know it's March).
If you think this is for trick-or-treaters, well, sure, let's go with that.
These cupcake squeezie thingies I need to buy.
Imagine the possibilities here.
This Romeo statue I put a Santa hat on at my Uncle's house when visiting at Christmas.
This important info-graphic, sent as an explanation as to why I was calling dibs on the queen size bed at the lake house this year.
This picture of Bill Murray throwing a golf club, so I can respond to text messages appropriately. Such a masterpiece just screams "I'm over it."
I have no idea what this is a picture of.
This inexplicable upside down Christmas tree.
This guy knocking out my gyros platter. At the time, it felt important to group text this to my entire family because they weren't there and I wanted them to be jealous. That'll teach you to go to Five Guys without me!
This "Jesus was a Feminist" pin that I bought on Etsy.
These cupcake truffles that I offered to buy everyone in my family, but only if they texted me back before I left Aldi. I had things to do that day, ok?
This times 462.
