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!|
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 :)
