10 Reasons Pinterest Is The Best Place To Go For Anything And Everything

Pinterest is essentially the Google for visual learners, where you can search for whatever you need and see pictures with clickable links.

We all know and love this wonderful website called Pinterest. The popularity for this site/application for the phone has died down significantly over the past years, but it still is the most versatile place to get ideas and inspiration for basically anything you can think of. With the site including "pins" that connect to DIY projects, articles and recipes, how could you not love it? Here are some reasons why Pinterest is the best website/application to go to for literally anything.

1. The interface is easy to search.


Just by typing in "chicken recipe", you get an endless supply of recipes from skillet to baked chicken. Gluten-free? No problem. Don't have certain ingredients? Just type in what you have and more recipes appear with the desired items.

2. The site is full of inspiration and examples of personal projects.


If you need inspiration for a project, you can search for images of ways other people made said project in their own way.

3. Find easy "How to ___" projects and tips/tricks.


Searching "How to ___" makes it simple to find an easy or complicated version of what you are trying to make/do. This can be from how to remove a stain, all the way to how to build a computer.

4. Search for anything, at any given time.


No matter where you are or whatever you're doing, you can search for whatever you need at any given time. (Such as when my roommate and I wanted to make a cake at 11:00 p.m. at night.. which turned out amazing at 1:30 a.m.)

5. Find articles and tips on self-development and wellness.

Not sure how to write a resume or the best places to get a fitness membership? The site contains more than just recipes and how to's, but also some great life tips.

6. The clickable pictures make it easy to see exactly what the pin contains.

These pictures make it easy to visually see what you want from a simple swipe. Each search also allows you to see related search words with the pictures for other related content.

7. It's easy to scroll through each page of pins.


When you search, you see many pictures of pins and can easily scroll to find the one that fits your search exactly.

8. Inspiration is found on every page.

You can draw inspiration even without clicking on the pin, but just scrolling to see what others have made.

9. You can see the successes and failures of other people's attempts at a similar project/plan.


"Tattoo", "How to pack", and "date spots in Orlando" are all searches that bring in a multitude of links that provide its viewers with the knowledge that others have shared through their successes/experiences.

10. Each pin is simply stated through the headline.


Similar to articles found on the web, each pin contains a simple headline that states exactly what it is, making it easy to distinguish what you need and don't need.

Pinterest is not only a place just for people to search for anything and everything, but it delivers more than so many sites can due to its visual qualities and easy access. From a desktop computer to a cell phone, this website can be easily accessed through the Internet or the application that can be found in any given mobile carrier's online store. With just the touch of a button, you have the world in the palm of your hands.

With Google, you can search and see a computer-generated answer or articles that can be unrelated to what you really need. However, with Pinterest, you have an endless supply of real people who have tried and succeeded at making anything and everything and are willing to share with the world how to do what they did as well. Other people helping other people reach success makes the world a better place, and you can help partake in this just by utilizing and contributing to Pinterest with what inspires you and the successes you've had. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
