What is Pinterest?

From the title you may think I’m a fossil. Well, usually I’m not, only on this particular subject. Please help me, what is Pinterest????

I’ve seen it go around Facebook and Twitter but I just don’t really get it. Apparently you can upload pictures and everybody can stick a pin in it, if they agree with it and comment on it. Why would I need this? I’m asking, seriously! I don’t even own a regular pin board, why would I want a virtual one?

I like Facebook and I spend a lot of time there, even when I should be doing other stuff (well that’s the whole purpose of it I think) and I’m no stranger to Twitter. After I got my smartphone, I’m also no stranger to Instagram anymore. But Pinterest? I just don’t know.

Maybe it’s good I’m not interested in it, though, cause with blogging, Twitter, Facebook and studying and working (Jahaa, I am doing something useful from time to time as well! Fell free to be amazed right NOW!) there is not much time left in the days. Oh, I forgot my TV addiction in the previous sentence, probably my biggest time sucker.

Anyway I realize that saying I’m not interested is just temporary. After all, I never wanted to play Farmville, but I ended playing it a lot until I lost interest (thankfully!!). I hope though I will not get infested with the Pinterest-virus.

Pinterest is supposed to be more attractive to women than men, at least when you look at who is using it the most. Does this mean I’m no real women? ¬†Probably not, although it’s not the first time I’m not in sync with the majority of other women. Let me expand:

  • I’m not a big fan of seasonal decoration, why should I go through with the troubles of changing it regularly and what if my ‘normal’ decorations don’t go with them? Am I supposed to throw them out then?
  • I prefer shopping for CDs, Books and Computers over clothes and shoes anytime.
  • I study Engineering.
  • I’m good at math and physics.
  • I never wanted to be a princess while I was growing up. However I wanted to become a P.I.
Then gain, there are the things that let me believe I’m a woman after all^^:
  • Well, there’s the body, can’t deny that fact :D
  • I’m good at baking cakes and bread and whatever it is you can bake.
  • Cooking is ok, not as good as baking but I won’t starve.
  • I do like to wear skirts occasionally.
  • Cheesy, romantic movies are my guilty pleasure, well not all of those out there but the good ones (if there is such a thing).
Looking at the lists makes me ok, I guess not doing whatever everybody else does, may not be a bad sign after all. And not trying to complete my virtual pin-board may actually be a good thing cause it gives me more time to waste on WordPress.
You may ask yourself, what does this have to do with the title? – I dunno. I’m a bit sleep deprived and it seemed to be as good a topic as every other one, so there you go. I’ll try to come up with something better ¬†next time. Until then,
See y’all!

  • Don’t do it!!! I’ve had many friends fall plague to this entity known as Pinterest. The virus spread too quickly before I could figure out what was going on. I can’t lose another person to this monster :P

    Haha, just kidding…I actually have no idea what it is. If you do find out what it is let me know! I can’t risk more time wasting sites haha!

    • Hahaha, don’t worry, I have no ambition to get sucked into this. Though I still don’t really have a clue why I would need it and why it’s so damn popular but if I find out, I’ll let you know ;-)
