Most of the time I am an all or nothing person. Usually I find that I am an 'all' person. If I like something, I have a hard time liking it in moderation (hello, chocolate!). It's not really a character trait that I'm proud of but it can be helpful in certain situations. For example, I am a 'nothing' person when it comes to boredom. I can't hardly tolerate sitting still doing nothing so that tends to make me a productive person (most days).
This all or nothing personality can make trying new things interesting. I find that my reactions are seldom moderate. New foods - I'll scream with delight or gag with disgust. New movies or books or stories - I'm riveted with amazement or asleep in my chair. New experiences - I'll be all aflutter with nervous excitement & I'll sign up for the experience again & again or I'll tell everyone in the world that I know why they should never ever do what I just did.
Yep, that's me.
And I recently developed a new addiction.
I signed up for Pinterest. I know a lot of you have already joined so I am a little behind the trend. At first I was a little put off - they make you request an invitation to join. I figured that since I am next to nothing to nobody I wouldn't get in. I'm not sure why you have to jump through that hoop, but I got in! I'm so very grateful that they didn't leave me with the nobody-wants-me-on-their-team feeling that you get in elementary school gym class. What? That was just me? ANYWAY, I haven't figured out how to really navigate within the Pinterest website. I have found people to follow & a few people have found me, which is always fun. And frankly, what they find to pin is more than enough for me to explore. I have found so many fun things to look at & dream about...too.much.fun. If I thought facebook was a black hole of time wasting, Pinterest is the deepest, darkest, worm-holiest, furtherest back corner of the granddaddy of all black holes. I could be on there all day. And all night.
The only consolation is that I might actually find some good recipes & craft ideas while I'm swimming in the black hole.
Come join the fun!
