Pinterest Makes Me Feel Inadequate...

I decided to participate in Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop today... It’s been a long time, but I really liked this prompt. It was: 2.) Are you on Pinterest? Share the last five items you pinned,choose one and let it inspire a blog post.

So here are the last 5 items I pinned:

These are just too cute for words... Right? Am I right?? They are on my “So cute, I’m gonna vomit” board.

From my “I wish I knew how to do my hair like grown-ups do...” board. I think I could actually achieve this one...

That’s true friendship... (From “Crack Me Up, Please”)

Who doesn’t sing “Soft Kitty” to ease sickness?! (Also from “Crack Me Up, Please”) I love Big Bang Theory.

Again from “I wish I knew how to do my hair like grown-ups do...”

So the one I’m sticking with is the last one there... I honestly DO NOT know how to do my hair! I can leave it down with it parted on the side or the middle, pull it half up, or put it in a ponytail. When it is longer I can braid it, though I rarely take the time to french braid... I have had success ONCE with a cute “braid my hair across my forehead” thing, but only once. I have not been able to repeat it even though I have tried sooooooo many times.

That’s it. Really. That is the extent of my hair styling “prowess”.

And I wish that I could do more... But my hair doesn’t like to curl, I can’t really have bangs because of my annoying cowlick, and I just flat out have no idea where to start. I simply comb my hair out after a shower, let it dry, and then brush it in the morning – all the while wishing that I had the skill to do something new...

But since I don’t – I will just keep staring at these pictures... Thinking how pretty they are...

And really missing when my hair was red... (But not wanting to make the effort to have it be red again...)


  1. My hair is naturally curly. As all the lovely tresses go by on pin after pin I feel like an outsider knowing it is never going to happen! But glitter shoes??? I can buy those!

  2. Isn't that the best part of Pinterest? Staring at all the pretty pictures? I mostly stare at food.

    I wish I could braid my hair pretty like that too.
