No, not like "down-to-Earth" grounded, but like, grounded-grounded. From repinning and surfing Pinterest. I love Pinterest just like anyone else but it wipes me out for coming up with original, uncontrived ideas.
Plus I get pissed when I see things like boot socks declared as a "new thing." Bitch, I wore those last year on the day I found my wedding dress. November of 2010. Yeah.
Basically I just need to take a little break from all the social comparison that occurs, is natural, and is human... but makes you feel like a fat cow for not having rock hard abs. And I don't think I'll miss the idiotically misattributed quotes. There's just not enough time in the day to come up with the tact necessary to correct all these things and to keep your sanity and True Self intact at once.
Ditto to all the exclusionary and ignorantly hurtful quotes as well.
I have no problem with making original pins from things I find on my own while I am grounded, but I won't be seeing the "More Pins" button for quiiiiiite a while.
Sometimes my nihilistic way just gives me the gumption to delete ALL my pinboards and start afresh.
Point is, it's like when you study a whole bunch of information. You start to recall it days later after it processes in your brain, is stored and then remembered. Pinterest holds SO many things that when I'm feeling creative and want an idea to come to me naturally, I recall a Pin instead. Sadddd panda.
So I'm going to clear out the Pinterest Recalls and start letting things come to me again.
