11 Things That Will Inevitably Happen When You're Obsessed With Pinterest

Is there a rehab center for being addicted to Pinterest?

Pinterest is addicting, no doubt about it. Once you starting pinning one thing, you will resurface from your computer an hour later not knowing at all what had occurred while you were immersed into the fantastic world of Pinterest. We've all done it, and we all silently judge ourselves, but what can we do? We're addicted and there's no stopping us. So here are things that will inevitably happen when you're obsessed with Pinterest.

1. People are going to ask you why you pin certain things.

When you start pinning "how to build yourself a safe room" when you start to hear noises in your house it's probably going to result in some questioning.

2. You've probably already planned out your wedding.

You're obviously going to get married in a barn with extravagant flowers lining the alter because Pinterest says so, and who doesn't trust Pinterest?

3. You have spent an entire class period pinning things at least once.

Why pay attention when you could be planning your wedding or your future house?!

4. You're going to try to make recipes you've pinned.

Making Pinterest recipes is all fun and games until the finished project looks nothing like the picture.

5. And try to do the hair styles you've pinned.

Now while people who were given the gift of being good at doing hair can make their attempted waterfall braids into a masterpiece, those of us who struggle have tried and failed miserably.

6. And then you silently blame Pinterest when your DIY or recipes don't turn out the way they are supposed to.

Why have you lied to me, Pinterest? My DIY bread bowls look nothing like the delicious goodness in the picture!

7. You have 300-plus pins in your "wardrobe" board and cry because the outfits don't magically appear in your closet.

Looking through our wardrobe pins and realizing we are broke college students who can't afford to live the life of luxury makes us spend our nights binge eating and crying. Thanks Pinterest!!

8. Oh, and your unborn child already has his/her entire wardrobe planned out.

All I can say is that my child will have all things monogrammed.

9. You've nonchalantly made a "gift" board so people know what to get you for your birthday.

No shame in our game.

10. Your dorm room was almost entirely created by a picture you pinned.

Who needs a degree in interior design when you have Pinterest?

11. Pinning is addictive, no mater what anyone says.

Like the GIF says, it's a lifestyle.

I'd Rather Be Single Than Settle – Here Is Why Being Picky Is Okay

They're on their best behavior when you're dating.

Dating nowadays described in one word: annoying.

What's even more annoying? when people tell you that you're being too "picky" when it comes to dating. Yes, from an outside perspective sometimes that's exactly what it looks like; however, when looking at it from my perspective it all makes sense.

I've heard it all:

"He was cute, why didn't you like him?"

"You didn't even give him a chance!"

"You pay too much attention to the little things!"

What people don't understand is that it's OKAY to be picky when it comes to guys. For some reason, girls in college freak out and think they're supposed to have a boyfriend by now, be engaged by the time they graduate, etc. It's all a little ridiculous.

However, I refuse to put myself on a time table such as this due to the fact that these girls who feel this way are left with no choice but to overlook the things in guys that they shouldn't be overlooking, they're settling and this is something that I refuse to do.

So this leaves the big question: What am I waiting for?

Well, I'm waiting for a guy who...

1. Wants to know my friends.

Blessed doesn't even begin to describe how lucky I am to have the friends that I do.

I want a guy who can hang out with my friends. If a guy makes an effort to impress your friends then that says a lot about him and how he feels about you. This not only shows that he cares about you but he cares about the people in your life as well.

Someone should be happy to see you happy and your friends contribute to that happiness, therefore, they should be nothing more than supportive and caring towards you and your friendships.

2. Actually, cares to get to know me.

Although this is a very broad statement, this is the most important one. A guy should want to know all about you. He should want to know your favorite movie, favorite ice cream flavor, favorite Netflix series, etc. Often, (the guys I get stuck on dates with) love to talk about themselves: they would rather tell you about what workout they did yesterday, what their job is, and what they like to do rather than get to know you.

This is something easy to spot on the first date, so although they may be "cute," you should probably drop them if you leave your date and can recite everything about their life since the day they were born, yet they didn't catch what your last name was.

3. How they talk about other women.

It does not matter who they're talking about, if they call their ex-girlfriend crazy we all know she probably isn't and if she is it's probably their fault.

If they talk bad about their mom, let's be honest, if they're disrespecting their mother they're not going to respect you either. If they mention a girl's physical appearances when describing them. For example, "yeah, I think our waitress is that blonde chick with the big boobs"

Well if that doesn't hint they're a complete f* boy then I don't know what else to tell you. And most importantly calling other women "bitches" that's just disrespectful.

Needless to say, if his conversations are similar to ones you'd hear in a frat house, ditch him.

4. Phone etiquette.

If he can't put his phone down long enough to take you to dinner then he doesn't deserve for you to be sitting across from him.

If a guy is serious about you he's going to give you his undivided attention and he's going to do whatever it takes to impress you and checking Snapchat on a date is not impressive. Also, notice if his phone is facedown, then there's most likely a reason for it.

He doesn't trust who or what could pop up on there and he clearly doesn't want you seeing. Although I'm not particularly interested in what's popping up on their phones, putting them face down says more about the guy than you think it does.

To reiterate, it's okay to be picky ladies, you're young, there's no rush.

Remember these tips next time you're on a date or seeing someone, and keep in mind: they're on their best behavior when you're dating. Then ask yourself, what will they be like when they're comfortable? Years down the road? Is this what I really want? If you ask yourself these questions you might be down the same road I have stumbled upon, being too picky.. and that's better than settling.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
