Diary of a New Pinterest User

Day One

10 a.m. Ugh. I’m so sick of everyone talking about Pinterest.

10:15 a.m. It just sounds so stupid. Basically a glorified bulletin board like you used to put up in college and wanted everyone to look at to see all the “cool” things you put on it but no one ever did. So stupid. People will fall for anything.

10:16 a.m. Like I need another social networking site to manage anyway.

10:18 a.m. OK! FINE! I’ll sign up! Just to check it out. So I can, you know, make fun of it. More thoroughly.

10:21 a.m. Waiting list!?! What the…? What the hell do they mean “I’m on a waiting list”? Who the hell do they think they are? It’s a website not Studio 54. I knew this would be stupid.

Day Three

2 p.m. Oh-ho! What do we have here? Pinterest finally decided I was worthy enough of their rinky-dink little site? Well, too late, douchebags. I don’t need your pity invite.

2:05 p.m. Ugh! Fine. Just a quick look-see. This is so stupid.

2:30 p.m. Soooo…I just pin things I like in different categories…? What’s the point?

2:31 p.m. Son of a…why am I automatically following 200 people? And why does it keep updating all this crap to Facebook!? I hate this website.

2:32 p.m. Oh! That is a pretty cool dress, though.

2:33 p.m. OK. Bored now. Signing off.

Day Four

9 a.m. Twenty-four followers overnight? Whoa. And I haven’t even really done anything yet. Eh, I got a few minutes. May as well give it another go.

9: 50 a.m. Wait, what time is it? Wow. Time really got away from me there. I’ll just browse a bit more and then start my workday.

10:22 a.m. All this stuff is so cool. And for some strange reason, even though I’m just admiring the work of other creative people, it somehow makes me feel creative by default…

10:25 p.m. Man, it’s like I can create my own dream life on here.

10:34 a.m. Everything I own sucks. Why can’t my life look like my ‘Things I Want’ board!?! I HATE MY LIFE!

11:12 a.m. Oh my God, I’m totally going to try this recipe tonight. Right after I go to the park and try to recreate those black and white photos I saw. Oh! And maybe I can swing by the bookstore on my way back to pick up that new Stephen King book I pinned on my “Must Read” board.

3:13 p.m. I’m totally going to start doing crafts and selling them on Etsy.

8 p.m. Holy shit! When did it get dark out?

8:42 p.m. And tomorrow I’ll start jogging now that I have that “Workout Motivation” board. And then go through my closet and re-organize so I can make room for all the new things on my “Personal Style” board…

Day Five


5:17 a.m. I should really go to bed.

5: 18 a.m. Oh! Wait! Look at that! Repin, bitches!
