Pinterest. It's so hot right now.

Hey you guuuuuys!

I can't say that without channeling The Goonies. Which is interesting, considering I've never seen all of that movie. Also, it kinda scares me.

A few weeks ago I heard about this thing called Pinterest. And I was intrigued. If you've already heard of it, good! If not, you really need to look into this.

It's pretty much the equivilant of tearing pages out of magzines and putting them in folders for future reference. Except with the internets instead of paper. And the ability to link back to the original source every time. And see other people's inspiration, and then claim it as your own inspiration.

I was only mildly interested, until I found out that you have to either be invited by a current member, or request to be a part of it! Once they got all elite on me, I desparately wanted to be a part of it. Those sly dogs.

Anyway, I sent in my request a while back, and a few days ago I got accepted! And it has seriously blown my mind.

Anytime I see something I like that I might want to remember, I just click a "Pin It" button on my toolbar, and viola! It's saved, categorized and linked back to the original source for easy peasy referencing!

Seriously. I love it.

This is what a board looks like:

This is my "Kitchen" board. I've got some serious plans for our new place!
 If you wanna check it out, click here to see my boards and get a feel for it. It's a little addictive, but definitely one of the most useful bookmarking tools I've ever used.

You can request to join yourself (it takes them about two weeks to acquiesce to your request), or I can send you an invitation! You won't have to wait as long if I send you an invite. I think. If I can figure out how to send invites...hmm.

Also, I like how I'm calling them "invites." Very casual.

Anyway, I like it.  And if you've ever seen an amazing idea on a website, but then can't find it ever, ever again fwhen you try to tell other people about the awesome idea you found, you might like it too.

Now...back to school work. Only 15 days and one monster final paper stand between me and my undergraduate degree! Where did the time go?

Graduation pictures and reflections coming soon. Look forward to that. I know I am :)

Um, but what about Avatar? Did you finish? Didn't you think the finale was AMAZING? And couldn't have possibly ended any better? Did you laugh and laugh at "The Ember Island Players"? I love how post-modern that whole episode was. And don't you love to hate Azula?

*sigh* I wish I hadn't seen every episode five times. I want to see it for the first time again.

Becca--it was AMAZING. I pretty much watched it for an entire week of my life. And, I don't regret it. At all.

I was NOT expecting that second to last episode to be a play! But it was hilarious. I loved that Aang was played by a girl. And Katara kept making heartfelt emotional speeches.

I will say, I did NOT see that ending coming! And it was perfection. Azula went totally crazy. I kind of felt a teensy bit bad for her there at the end.

Sometimes I miss it. I want more of the story. What happens next? I want Aang's babies to be awesome air/water hybrids. And I want Prince Azuko (spelling?) to find his Mom.

What's a girl to do?

Becca said...

I'm so filled with hope, I'm tear-bending.

Lindy said...

Ahahaha--I would have to watch it again to be able to quote it...but I'm sure I'll be at that level soon. I can't wait to have kids, just so I can introduce them to this show. And maybe draw some arrows on their heads.

I realize you posted this like a million years ago, but I recently have been going bookmark crazy on my browser and I'm thinkin' I need a little more organization! If you have figured out how to send invites, please send me one! :) Thanks!!!
