Making the Cut?

Pinterest.  It's a new trendy phenomenon.  It's cool.  It's up and coming.  It's the new rage.  Everybody's doing it.  It's also a double edged sword.  Why you ask?  Apparently you have to make the cut to be offered a Pinterest account.  When I first found out about Pinterest (thanks to Betsy) I was very excited.  I wasn't sure why because I'm not into fashion and stuff and most of what I saw was fashion.  And stuff.  But I decided to like it.  I decided that I wanted one.  I thought it was like facebook and anyone could get one.  WRONG.  You have to apply.  Then they take forever to respond.  I felt like I was in 7th grade (most def not my best time period) waiting to get asked to dance at the IOP dance or waiting to get picked for a team.  It was terrible.  Why didn't they want me?  I mean- this stupid website was making me insecure.  After like 5 days I decided that I didn't need one.  I felt good about my decision. I didn't need some stupid picture website to accept me.  Then I got pissed because another roommate got one and we applied at the same time.  Oh heck no.  I was going down a negative path...I decided to re apply.  A few times.   Here is what they said:

Well isn't that lovely.  You won't accept me, but you want me to follow you??  Yeah right.  Just when I was about to give up...I got a confirmation email.  Made the cut.  Immediately, I felt much better about myself.  Not rejected..Yesss.  Wow, that's kind of scary.  I know I am being dramatic, but they were ticking me off.  So now I have one.  Why??  I have no idea.  I don't want to get rid of it because who knows if they would ever re-accept me...So I made some boards.  I am not exactly sure of the point, but it's kind of fun.  Except it is a time waster.  I'm going to need to work on that one.  So there you have it.  I'm doing something trendy.  Oh well, miracles happen everyday. Right?
