If the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior over and over while expecting a different result then PINTEREST HAS MADE ME INSANE. I have tried hundreds of “tips” or “tricks” or “DIYs” or “life hacks” that looked completely amazing and perfect on Pinterest but end up in total disaster for me in real life. But I just keep trying them over and over again expecting a different result. Insanity.
Sleeping with your hair in twists for the perfect curls? Done it. I woke up with hair that look like if a Muppet electrocuted itself and then got caught in a tornado.
Using a sharpie to make a cute pattern on a ceramic plate and then baking it to keep it from rubbing off? Done it. I am still trying to wash off pink sharpie from my hands, where it decided to become permanent, but the sharpie on the plates washed off at the first drop of water.
Wrapping the perfect present? Done it. My presents would look better if a child had wrapped them and then kicked them around for a couple hours.
Probably all these things are my fault and I’m sure Pinterest isn’t to blame, but really it is. Because Pinterest always makes me think I can do things that I know in my heart I can’t. Stop giving me false hope Pinterest. You’ll be receiving my DIY therapy bills soon.
