  1. Well apparently my app choices are older than I am (27 and single!): You’re either a married, middle-aged lady … or you use your phone like one. Hahaha.

    Definitely going to try some of those tips if I wake up in the middle of the night! That Olympic Village article, so interesting. I didn’t realize how strong the security was. And oh the people watching!

    • I definitely use my phone like a middle-aged lady in that I generally take 24 hours to respond to text messages, and whatever I type on a phone is littered with autocorrect errors. But at least my mix of apps makes me seem young! ;)
