8 Pinterest Boards Every Planner Needs To Start Now

Pinterest is the twenty-first century magazine. With the ability to access every possible topic and find information on any subject, it's a essentially cutting out an article from a very large magazine to add to your collection. For me, Pinterest isn't just about finding cute outfits and awing over expensive wedding dresses; it's about improving my lifestyle. Since January I've started several boards that have helped me in my everyday life. Here are 12 boards to start on Pinterest.

1. Travel

Obviously, this board is my favorite. If you suffer from wanderlust on a regular basis, like I do, this board will keep your adventurous dreams alive. There are absolutely no limits on what places you want to pin! Pinterest's wide selection will also lead you to locations that are closer to home. Just by searching, you can find cool places to take a day-trip and pin them for later!

2. Book List

This board can look terrifying at first, if you just start throwing every pin that features a book in it. The trick is to focus on the books you would actually read. It'll also making you feel less guilty walking into a bookstore and buying a stack that's going to sit in the corner of your room because you don't have time. A board is a reliable place you can go to for book suggestions before filling up the space on your bookshelf!

3. Organization

I can't tell you how many times I've scrolled passes "20 Easy Tips for Bullet Journals" or "10 Ways to Improve Your Planner." Simply by making a board, all this advice becomes easier to look through and decide what works for me. If you devote the time to organizing a board, then you definitely have the time to improve your organization skills.

4. Crafts

I couldn't even begin to tell you how many crafts I've done from my board. Too many to count. I mostly use pins for inspiration, knowing I could never create exactly what they did--because of the lack of arts & crafts skills I possess. Either way, it's a great way to build up cute crafts for any type of occasion: graduation, big/little week, weddings, baby showers, even home decor. It's all there on your board, saving time and money later when you need to think of something for a certain event.

5. Recipes

This is a cliche use of Pinterest, but it works. My recipe board has been my saving-grace while studying abroad and making my own meals. Just by searching quick dinners to make, I'm able to get everything I need and have it ready by that night. Plus, if I'm craving something in particular, I can search recipes that include that specific food!

6. Outfits

Another cliche, but there's a reason I put this one of the list. This board isn't necessarily for you to drool over clothing you'll never be able to afford, but instead for more practical outfits. Start by pinning outfits you could actually see yourself wearing, then draw inspiration from it as you head off to second-hand shops and Good Will to see if you can't just fit the expensive outfit into your budget.

7. Career Improvement

Whether you're a college student preparing for real world jobs, an intern for a company you'd like to make an impression at, or even someone who's been in "grown up" jobs for a long time, there's always room for improvement! Start a board devoted to resume/cover letter/careers tips, helpful books from successful people in your field of interest, and overall inspiration for success. It's a perfect way to set aside a small section of time to advance your career goals.

8. Odyssey Articles

A board dedicated to the Odyssey article you love or wrote is great way to share a wider range of viewers through Pinterest! I can't tell you how many helpful articles I've found through my board for Odyssey.

These boards are suggestions to make your life easier and have become a great help to me, especially while studying abroad. Which ones will you try out?

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

5 Reasons To Put The Damn Mask On, And Stop Fussing With It

COVID-19 is real people, do your part to protect yourself and others.

Ilana Stein

With the ever-changing reality of our world due to COVID-19, there has been one constant throughout these past unforeseen months, masks. Ever since coronavirus hit the ground running in the US, the CDC has been recommending social distancing and mask-wearing to stop the rapid spread.

Many people have been great about adhering to these policies, mandates, and suggested uses, but others, not so much.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.
