I was browsing through the apps on my iPhone recently. It amused me how a collection of digital images can sum up my personality, but there is complete truth in that statement. In the myriad of apps available to owners of iPhones, my collection really does exemplify the things that I am most passionate about. Sure, there are a few versions of Angry Birds for those moments of distraction, but the majority of those apps revolve around words, music, golf and football.
Not only do I have a dictionary and thesaurus, I have an app to take notes for future blog posts or story ideas as well as a voice recorder in case the ghost writing on the white board in my brain happens while I am behind the wheel. And I, of course, have my Kindle app so I am afforded the luxury of reading whenever I have a few stolen moments to escape reality.
I always liked to think that there may still be some mystery to me, but after looking at the items on my phone that represent who I am, ironically I seem to be an open book. The mystery has dissolved and I seemingly wear my heart on my sleeve, or in this case, my phone.
There is something to be said for people being able to see the real you. Have a look at your phone. What do your apps say about you?
