My google data is gone
January 1st, 2021 was the first day I woke up without a google account. I'd spent the prior months preparing to disconnect.
Backed up my data a few days before. Migrated emails to my own domain name over years. It took time.
I had my data on a flash drive and my laptop.
The day I flashed my laptop with a new OS was the first time the flash drive stopped working. I don't even remember when that day was.
That was it. Not with a bang or a whimper.
I'm still alive. I woke up beside myself.
