I will be honest with you: I used to make fun of Pinterest. When I first heard about it, my thoughts immediately went to moms, which is something I have no anticipation of becoming, so I hastily dismissed the platform as something I couldn’t identify with and utilize. However, when I started college three years ago, I hit a giant concrete wall with my creativity (and not in the way that you see me posing in front of it for outfits; I’m talking about my forehead and that wall becoming one). I had a dorm to decorate, outfits to plan, organization and meals to lay out… and I had absolutely nothing. Then, ALAS, I decided to get off that high horse of mine and make a Pinterest account, and it was my best friend for a short period of time. I learned a lot about the art of interiors and how to take my personality and channel it into a manner that reflects me and is aesthetically-pleasing. I felt that, all along, I possessed this superpower to learn how to express myself, and Pinterest became my pressed-button-down, horn-rimmed glasses sidekick that let me design my life around me, all with the collaborative effort of my fellow digital peers.
I always considered Pinterest a personal account of mine, equivalent to my Facebook profile or (super secret) Tumblr. However, this past week I have realized that it is a prime opportunity to share my ideas and goals for my apartment, lifestyle, and outfits with all of you beautiful people. I realized that the way that Pinterest works is that if you give engagement, you get it in return. I have begun posting on a near-daily basis, and my meager number of followers on my account doubled in a day.
