Perennial To-Do List: Hang up my clothes— my room gets so messy so fast. And pick up packages at the post office. There's always a massive line and one window open, so I end up walking in, then turning right around.

Mind: Trying to overcome my social anxiety. It's manifested in trichotillomania, a disorder that gives me the urge to pull out my eyelashes.

Bucket List: Learning Mandarin and Spanish.

Kitchen Counter: A SodaStream, a straw dispenser, a Yoda sculpture.

Regrets List: Not doing CPR on my grandmother. She died because of lack of oxygen to her brain.

Last Credit Card Statement: Groceries from Trader Joe's, plane tickets for my mom and niece to visit me in California, and gifts from John Varvatos.

Shit List: Junk mail, yoga, people who start small talk with you in lines.

Playlist: Kendrick Lamar, Sam Cooke, BJ the Chicago Kid, A$AP Rocky, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Michael Jackson.

Qualities-in-a-Friend List: Loyalty, honesty, and understanding.

Favorite-Gadget List: A Roomba. My Moroccan rug sheds, and the only thing that keeps it clean is a robot.

Bed: A Lady Americana California King mattress and Restoration Hardware duvet.

Go-To Menu: Thai delivery. I over-order so I can have leftovers for two days.

Workout Regimen: I struggle with wanting to work out. I hike, surf, and dance, but I think I'm going to start doing Pilates—though I'm not happy about it.

List of Charities You Support: PETA, Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Wounded Warrior Project.

Liquor Shelf: Wine and whiskey.

Sirius XM Dial: Howard 100 and 101, Prime Country, '40s on 40, '80s on 80, Backspin.

Must-See-TV ListThe Daily Show.

Nightstand: Melatonin; The Singularity Is Near by Ray Kurzweil; strawberry lip balm; a 980,000-volt stun gun for protection; Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream.

Quote-to-Live-by List: "With the story of your life, you don't get to write the whole book, just your character." —Me
