I deleted my Instagram account

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Today I finally deleted my Instagram account, or rather initiated a deletion for 30 days. Yesterday evening I started a data export, today I was able to download a ZIP file with all my data from Instagram, including all photos, likes, comments and stuff like that. So if I think of something important, I can still pull the data from the archive.

One or maybe two years ago, you could have been looking at my life and you probably would have noticed that I spent a lot of my time with social media.

The Unconscious Influence of Social Media - What I Realized

Published on in ✍️ Posts

For the last two weeks I had holidays. Actually, but not really, because I didn’t really notice much of the holidays. Christmas and New Year’s Eve were, and most people spent their time at this time of the year, with their eating and sitting around.
