12 Signs You're Hopelessly Addicted To Pinterest

Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery.

12 Signs You're Hopelessly Addicted To Pinterest

Hi, my name is Claire Hampton and I'm a Pin-aholic. (This is the part where you say, "Hi Claire.")

Today we will be discussing the 12 signs of Pinterest-itis. If you relate to all or most of these, then you too are a Pin-aholic.

This article is not responsible for any extra time you may spend on Pinterest after reading it.

1. Everything you say or quote comes from Pinterest

Praying it's not a conspiracy because, if so, I've fallen for the bait.

2. You have a board for everything, and I mean everything

Everyone was getting a Pinterest in the 6th grade, or was it 7th? Anyways, I made an account too and immediately got sucked in.

3. You've planned out your entire wedding

Tell me, why doesn't money grow on trees again?

4. Your sentences often begin with, "I was scrolling through Pinterest and found..."

But really though...

5. The photo album on your phone is filled with screenshots of things you have found on Pinterest

This is probably why I have over 500 pictures in my screenshots album.

6. You're always scared people will think you're getting married (when you're not) because you just spent a few hours pinning engagement rings

16 isn't too young to start planning, right?

7. You had your college dorm room designed long before you were old enough to take the ACT

It's never too early to start preparing for college, especially when it comes to choosing a color scheme.

8. Wishing your closet was filled with all the pins you have in your clothing, shoes, and accessories board

Or just wishing you could actually pull off anything you have in your clothing, shoes, and accessories board. Those 6-inch wedges are super duper cute, but you know in reality your ankles are too weak to wear them and you would fall and break your neck in like 0.2 seconds.

9. We've all looked up and cooked recipes but they never turned out as aesthetically pleasing to the eye

Yup. Nailed it.

10. Has like thousands of DIY things pinned but has never tried one of them

They seem like great ideas when you first pin them, but then you realize you would have to exit out of Pinterest and you've scrolled this far already. Not to mention you would have to actually get up.

11. Pins a bunch of exercise routines, is determined to try them out, but never “gets around” to them

Seriously, I think I've done maybe one. I always give myself great excuses, like, keep pinning!

12. Low key hoping your future husband has a Pinterest so he can know what kind of engagement ring to get you

And also hoping that he is not upset you already planned the entire wedding before you even met him. Maybe he won't want a say in things? Well, here's hoping!

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
