What did you discover this year?
I mentioned yesterday (in a post that was excessively hard to write and took much burning of lavender incense and sage, and a very long hot bath to recover from) that I get addicted to things easily. It sort of sucks.
So why I ever decided to try Pinterest is beyond me. My friends warned me. "It's a black hole! It's worse than TV Tropes!" I had actually gotten the account at least a year before I actually started using it, then someone's post on Facebook reminded me that the thing exists.
So. I discovered Pinterest this year. Yep, it's quite addicting. But I also discovered the LeechBlock add-on for Firefox, so it hasn't monstrously killed my productivity.
And I know it's gotten some flak for being materialistic and for creating unrealistic expectations for would-be crafters everywhere, but it's also a really worthwhile tool for someone like me: an aspiring minimalist who also kind of sucks at minimalism because I tend to therapy shop a lot. On Pinterest, I can hoard all the stuff I want. I can organize meticulously, or be kind of willy-nilly about it. I can plan outfits and collect gift ideas. I can sort of own that awesome thing I saw without spending money or cluttering up my tiny apartment with junk.
So, if you want to hang out and share some pins, I'll be right over here.
