Dear Pinterest, where would I be without you? On my darkest days, you were there in my favorites bar to console me with ridiculous memes that are only funny when you’re desperate.
Then again, without you, I’d probably have done better on that Latin final, because I’d have studied more if you weren’t there to distract me every 30 seconds.
But you did have gloriously colorful tantalizing pictures of cute flash cards that I was drooling over.
Yet, the problem with you is that the ideas I get from your library of approximatley 4.7 gazillion images and ideas always turn out looking terrible, from that failed crochet unicorn (ended up with a depressed looking groundhog with a misshapen lump on his forehead) to that time I tried to make keto fudge sauce (ended up with gaggingly sweet chocolate glop).
You were there for all my obsessions, from the ones that lasted two minutes (ombre hair) to the ones that have lasted two years (The Flaaaaaaash….Artemis Fowl!!!)
You made me realize that while I may be painfully socially awkward, a complete weirdo, geek, and nerd, I’m not the only one.
There are plenty of other people with my problem, we just only come together on the internet. Oh, joy.
I literally have a board entitled ”So True” for all those pins that make me go; ”OH D’ARVIT YAS”
Dear Pinterest, thank you for being there for all my fangirling needs;
But please, stop making me want so many things, for the love of lemurs, I’m never going to be able to get all of this, I have no money.
Pinterest, thank you for introducing me to LoadingArtist, Odd1sOut, and Sheldon thee Tiny Dinosaur, three hilarious webcomics that have kept me laughing (”What do I have to live for? Oh, wait, new LoadingArtist on Tuesday!”).
Dear Pinterest, you are many things, a distraction, and a great tool. (But mostly a distraction)
So thank you.
Yours Always, Except When I Have Schoolwork Or My Laptop Is Dead,
