Fun Fact Questions & Answers:

Q: Mainstream tech device you can’t live without? Why? 

A: My cell phone—for sure! From sending about a million photos of my cat to my husband on Snapchat, to ordering groceries on pick-up apps, to tracking my workouts, to crushing candies when I need to unwind before bed, I do pretty much everyone on it. 

Q: What was your first cell phone?

My first cell phone was a flip phone, as all first phones should be. I got a magenta and white Samsung flip phone for Christmas when I was in eighth grade, I believe. That was the best Christmas until I was allowed to use data as well and not just send texts/make calls. 

Q: What mainstream tech device is at the top of your wish list, or, what new tech can you not get enough of?  

A: I only just recently began using wireless headphones. So up until recently that would have been on my wish list, but now I can’t get enough of them. They’re nice for music or taking phone calls without having extra cords everywhere! 

Q: If you were a mainstream tech device, what would you be, and why? 

A: Probably be one of those old-school phones whose battery would fall out if you dropped it, but never actually broke or had a chipped screen, and only needed charged like twice a week. I played soccer in college, so I’m used to taking some hits but having to get back up and get the job done. I also have a very long battery life. I wake up early and go to bed late.
