So, I love apps. I adore them. And I collect them in the same way I used to collect POGS, for no reason other than some are awesome and some are not and some are shiny and pretty and
some most are useless. I have way too many and have been trying recently to whittle them down to a select few.
Here’s one of my favorites: Carrot.
I also love lists. I just love them. Shopping lists. To-Do lists. To Write lists. Gift lists. Cards lists. Lists of Lists to Make. If it were a choice between making a list and eating a Dorito…no, bad example…eating a cookie, I would pick making a list. I’m not that fond of cookies.
Among the many to-do list apps I have on my phone, this is by far my favorite. For one very unique reason, it freaks me out when I’m being lazy…but also rewards me when I’m good.
I’m now thinking about Doritos. This is probably why I never get any tasks done.

I didn’t name him. And I haven’t reached the level where I’m allowed to rename him yet. Although, if I want, for 99cents I can buy him a pirate outfit. No, seriously.
Carrot also becomes disappointed when I abandon it for long periods of time:
But when I’m good, and complete things, it rewards me again, with a self-portrait of myself:
And then when I ignore it, it starts texting me. A lot.
