5 Things I Want To Do After Scrolling On Pinterest For 15 Minutes

Who doesn't create five new boards after just fifteen minutes on Pinterest?

We've all at least heard of Pinterest and if you have it downloaded you know how addicting it can become. Here are five things that I want to do, be, or have after fifteen minutes of scrolling on the app.

1. Get another tattoo

I won't be the first, or the last, person to admit that Pinterest is my go-to app when it comes to inspiration. After all, it's where my best friend and I got the inspiration for our first matching tattoo. Whether I'm scrolling past tiny finger tattoos or I suddenly spot a green-inked dragon on someone's thigh, you can bet your bottoms' dollar that I want it on the spot.

2. Change my entire wardrobe to match the occasion

Speaking of bottoms, when I need an outfit inspiration to wear to a theme park, the beach, or a birthday party, I run over to my "Outfit Inspos" section in one of my many Inspiration Boards. Can I rock this oversized tee with a cute pair of pink Nike running shorts, Crocs, and a Fanny pack? Of course! Is it absolutely basic? I don't need an answer here, it's a rhetorical question.

3. Re-organize my entire life

Whether you're trying to color-code your planner or declutter your room, Pinterest has your back! I can always find hacks to make sense of the mess that is my life. I can find anything, from how-to guides for notes to the perfectly organized fridge. Being able to make sections and boards on my personal Pinterest page has made the app fun and led me to discover how to sort through what fun ideas I really want to try. As someone who keeps a daily planner, I'm always looking for tips and tricks to stay organized when it comes to juggling schoolwork, activities, work, family, and even hanging out with friends. All the ideas are just *chef's kiss.*

4. Try a new recipe

As someone who is easily entertained by "Tasty" videos, I love going to Pinterest to find recipes I can make with my boyfriend when we're hungry. While most of them have stayed saved or don't always come out perfectly, I always have fun making them. Scrolling through cooking inspiration pages is awesome because I can find something I'd like to eat if I'm hungry or I can discover a new Starbucks drink I want to try. It's also super useful if you're trying to find recipes for weight loss, such as Keto or Paleo.

5. Workout to a jamming new playlist and routine

While Instagram and YouTube are cool places to find motivation, I always hit up my Pinterest board when I don't have a clue what I want to do at the gym. You can find other people's workout playlists, warm-ups, and even their entire routine. Even when there's moves I don't know, and probably won't ever learn by name, I can always count on finding an example in the search bar. (Like what even is a bird-dog? I had to look it up again, and I found out what it was... again. )

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
