Why My Pinterest Board Describes Me

Every profile is different, but we all share similar ideas.

Pinterest is a wonderful website. It’s a place to find inspiration and just spend time browsing articles and so much more. Each person has their own Pinterest Personality. Our own plethora of boards and ideas represents what we believe in and value most. Here are a few examples of boards I have that represent me.

Quotes

A collection of sayings for any situation. Poetic words and phrases put together like art. Quotes online can put words to thoughts we never could say ourselves. Quotes can show us how to escape our situation or show us that we aren’t alone in any situation.

Fashion and Beauty

I’m a girl. I love clothing and makeup and all things fashion. I could never afford half the things on the board but they sure look pretty. I’m not sure if I could even pull off half of the outfits on the board but they look good in the pictures. Why not just appreciate the beauty?

My Dream College

Go Gators! I have wanted to go to the University of Florida since I was 10 years old. From there I began my board of gator gear and quotes. When I began my senior year of high school, I also started pinning lists of things to bring to college as well as decorations.

DIY

Do it yourself. Projects, paintings, and so many more things that’re better when you do them yourself instead of pay for them. My board consists mostly of dorm decorations and paintings. I love to spend my free time painting for my friends and family.

One Day

Every middle and high school girl has a board like this. A board full of date and wedding ideas. Beautiful dresses and ideas for pictures that we hope to experience in our future. Date ideas and anniversary gift baskets. This board is a place for relationship inspiration.

Yum Yum

Who doesn’t love food? Instagram worthy pictures of meals and drinks. Recipes for delicious desserts and meals no one could think of on their own. A place to go when you have no idea what to make for a dinner party or date.

Fitness

Workout plans and ideas for weight loss and muscle building. A perfect board for anyone wanting to be healthy and work exercise into their life. Many people don’t know how to put together a workout for specific muscle groups – this solves that problem.

Home Life

As a college student, I am so excited to move into my own apartment and eventually own my own home. While bills and responsibility can be scary, decorating is not. Throw pillows and bed sets, dishes and organizers, all have so many options to choose from.

Prayer

As a Christian, I find is essential to have a board to devote to Jesus. A board full of prayers to praise Him, Bible verses showing His grace, and daily reminders of Him. When a tough day comes and it feels like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, this board can provide inspiration.

Life of a Reporter

All of us have career aspirations. Dreams of what we are going to do for the rest of our lives. For me, I want to be a reporter. So, my career board is full of professional attire and tips on journalism careers.

Now some people have not taken to Pinterest yet. But I would definitely recommend signing up. Who knows what you will find.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

Hey,

So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Sincerely,

Me

Why You Should Bring Your Close Friend As Your Formal Date

Before asking that cute girl to formal think about asking a friend

122

Every year since I was a junior in high school I have always looked forward to homecoming or prom. When I got to college I began to look forward to my fraternity formal. I was never concerned with what to wear or the expense of formal but rather who I was going to ask. It can be difficult to make a decision. If you ask anyone friends with me they will tell you how I am one of the most indecisive people out there. There are so many people I am friendly with or have a close relationship that it can feel difficult to make a decision. But let's look at that phrase again. You might think why does he want to bring someone who is his friend to his fraternity formal rather than someone he likes or is dating. To answer this question, some of the girls I have liked I have not been able to be the true me around and that also applies to the girls I have dated as well. I am different around my friends and I want someone to know the real me rather than me just having to pretend.

Maybe I am still experiencing the effects of a fun weekend but I have noticed that every formal or prom that I have brought a date with not only was a fun formal but interacted and connected well with my friends. That is the main thing I look for in a formal date, they need to be liked by my friends and many of them are still pretty friendly after the formal. You are spending the weekend with them and the drive down for you formal. There will be a lot of time spent with your date so it is important to bring someone you know you will have fun with. I am not saying that there isn't anything wrong with bringing someone else but I always found it best to bring a friend if you are not dating someone.

Think about the people you know you will always have fun with. This can be an indication of who you should bring and why but you should also think about the positives in this situation. Your fun and the time spent with the people should be prioritized before anything else. This event is about you and you should have someone with you that you know is fun to be around and someone you can enjoy yourself around along with your friends. Friends know you as well as you know yourself so there is not an idea of having to pretend to be someone else. The good thing about friends is that you do not run out of things to talk about and there is always something new to learn. Take your formal as a trip that you get to experience with the people closest to you. That is my take.

The key for me is to know that I will have fun with my date at formal. The drive to formal can be long and you are sharing a hotel room with your date along with spending time with them during the trip. I talk a lot. I want someone I know who I can carry a conversation with and will not just respond with words such as Yeah or Sounds good. I have always been able to remember not only my formals but specific parts of it as well. I think this is possible because of who I have brought and the memories I made with them.

Formals are important to everyone so think about who you want to spend that moment with. There is nothing wrong with bringing someone who you like but there also is nothing wrong with bringing a friend. Some people might bring someone they are dating but you should not have to compare yourself to other people. Do what makes you happy but remember this weekend is about you and you deserve to bring someone you will have fun with.
