My most productive/unproductive addiction

Yep, I'm Olivia and I am a Pinterest addict.  I don't just mean I "like" it.  I am 100% head-over-heels obsessed and have been for about four years.  And there's a reason I don't know whether it's a productive or unproductive addiction!  I've come up with so many ideas and created so many awesome things because of what I've seen on Pinterest, but it is also the main source of any procrastinating that I do!  The other day I was asking a worker at Victoria's Secret a question, and she answered and then said, "God your outfit is so cute, I just want to pin you to my Pinterest board!"  It was the ultimate honor since I spend waaaaay too much time pinning photos of other people wearing things that I like...  But the main purpose behind this post is to give you the reasons that I think Pinterest is what keeps me sane!

1) It's a huge stress reliever.  You don't really have to think too hard about what you're doing while you're pinning.  I keep my boards pretty well-organized (although they could always be better), so I can pretty much just click away aimlessly.  My favorite boards are my style boards that are separated by season/occasion.  Right before I fall asleep is when I usually pin obnoxious amounts.  When I'm on those pinning binges is when I find the best stuff for those boards.

2)  At 27,ooo pins (oh my god, when are you going to stop?), I feel like my Pinterest would be a disaster if it wasn't organized.  And I get highly irritated if I find, for instance, nails on the purse board >:( ...I am a person who thrives off organization.  I just love organizing/collecting things.  Pinterest gives me another reason to do just that.  Probably why I like it so much.

3) Finally, when Pinterest added that Secret board feature, I only fell more in love with it!  I screenshot so many things I want to do, make, and buy but I hate keeping it all on my phone where it just takes up space.  I have a secret board where I pin all my screenshots, which is seriously the most convenient thing ever.

So yea, check out my um... 61 BOARDS (embarrassing) because there has to be something that you'll like on there!  My Pinterest
