By now you probably know that I am a very curious person who loves gathering information. You also probably know that I’m a little nosey—because what curious person isn’t? So when I found this series on YouTube, I could hardly resist.
It’s been almost a year since we did our first deep dive into our phones, so I figured it was about time we checked back in.
Here were the results:
1) What is the last photo you took?
Rachel: Mine is of this color coordinated clothing rack:
Natalee: Mine is of this creature on my plant. Look at this creepy crawly:
Me: Mine is of this clock from our friend Taylor’s house. I just really liked it…
2) What is the last thing you Googled?
Natalee: “Hitchhiker’s to the galaxy plot.” I need to know it for work so I cheated.
Rachel: “Aladdin.” I was looking at showtimes.
*collective pause to discuss the new Aladdin movie*
Kim: “Rompers for men.” I couldn’t remember what they were called. (They are called “Romp-hims” by the way.)
3) What is your last text?
Rachel: Oh, this was funny. It was texted to me to describe the way I talk about things. It says, “I didn’t hate it, so there’s that. ‘The Rachel Liner Story.'”
Natalee: It was to the family group chat talking about all the things we are looking forward to on our trip and I said, “Amen to all of that!”
Kim: Mine is also about our trip. I said to dad, “Beer is on the agenda!”
4) How many alarms do you have set?
Rachel: I only have three but I just reset them.
Me: Oh, I have a lot. I think even more than last time. I have eight.
Natalee: I have six. They range from 5:45 a.m. to 6:20 p.m. Not sure what that 6:20 p.m. one is from but I’m guessing it was probably a nap.
5) What are your most frequently used emojis?
Rachel: These are my top used: but I also really love this one:
Me: Yeah, that’s me in a nutshell.
Natalee: This is my favorite though: It’s the best one ever made.
6) What is your last voicemail?
Me: Mine is from [my best friend] Allison. She was just calling to chat but spent a good portion of the message complimenting my voice on the voicemail so that was sweet.
Natalee: See if you can guess mine.
Me: —Kristine [Natalee’s best friend.] Not a lot of other people -are out there calling you noodlepop. (For reference, Kristine calls me “Kim-age” so it’s safe to say her nicknames are supreme.)
Rachel: Oh wait, I have a really good one. It’s from this guy offering to lower the payment on my student loans. I mean, what kind of scam does Jonathan think I’m gonna fall for?
7) What is the last selfie you took?
Me: The last picture I took with me actually holding the phone and volunteering for my photo to be taken was this one of Mel and I. Aren’t we pretty?
Natalee: Mine is with Amanda. We were a little day drunk and so we thought, “hey, let’s day a picture of us being day drunk” and, well, we look pretty day drunk.
Rachel: I’m not really in this one but I did take it and it’s when Dylan and I were with the rhinos.
8) What is the last app you downloaded?
Natalee: Mine is a little basic, but it’s Instastories because for a minute there I was considering making my Instagram stories a little fancier but I haven’t used it yet.
Rachel: The McDonald’s app. I got it to try and collect on those chicken nuggets we won at the Dodger game [at every home game fans in attendance win free chicken nuggets if the Dodgers score six runs or more] Also pro-tip, I don’t think you even have to be at the game to get those nuggets. They just show up in the app… It’s a big deal and no one’s talking about.
Me: Happify. I downloaded it yesterday because I saw it mentioned in an article online, but I don’t really know what it does yet.
9) What is the last podcast you listened to?
Rachel: Blackout. It’s with Rami Malek. I’ve only listened to the first couple but it’s pretty good.
Natalee: SLP’s Wine and Cheese. It’s where I listen to SLP’s (speech language pathologist—my sister’s future job title) talk about their caseload and drink wine at the end of a long week.
Me: Case Closed. It’s that podcast about solved murder cases that I got into. The second season has been way better than the first. The first season was just about a bad criminal. I mean, if you’re going to murder someone and try to cover it up, at least do a good job.
10) What is the last note you made?
Natalee: “Angelina’s across from the Louvre known for drinking chocolate.” It’s a suggestion I got from a friend about something we should do while we’re in Paris.
Me: Mine is a suggested packing list for dad—with witty commentary.
Rachel: Mine was my target list and the best part about looking at it again right now is that I totally forgot I bought these chai teas, but they are definitely in the fridge downstairs and I’m very excited about it.
So in case you’re ever wondering if these posts are important, or if you’re curious about taking a little dive into your own phone, remember, there might be a chai tea in your fridge that you totally forgot about, so take the dive. It’s worth it.
