Biggest time-suck app: ifunny

How many unread emails: None! I’m just a little OCD when it comes to my emails. They aren’t all answered, but they are all opened and organized.

Number of contacts: 122. I just recently moved to Kansas City, and I took the opportunity during the drive to cull my contacts.

Craziest place you’ve ever lost your phone: Inside a couch cushion, at a friend’s apartment. There was a hole in the cushion and somehow my phone found its way in.

Favorite entertainment app: I don’t have an entertainment app, but I habitually check my Google news feed, which I’ve customized with my favorite topics from fitness to celebrity gossip to politics.

Cities on Weather app: Gardner, Kansas; St. Charles, Illinois; Munich, Germany; Washington, D.C.
