Random, Beautiful Internet


Often times I collect articles and notes from things I’ve read and seen online. If online hoarding was a thing, I’d need an intervention. I’m the type of digital hoarder who’ll find an article in a solidified bowl of oatmeal in a dusty corner of my computer hard drive. Gross? Well, it’s the truth.

In order to purge some of my finds, I wanted to share them with you today. Because sharing is caring (and it also makes me feel less guilty for hoarding).

This adorable info graphic from Format on how to live like a creative is just too smart. Made my heart glow.

And if you have five minutes, you MUST read The Impostor Syndrome. Augh. So good.

“Very few people have the humility to start as amateurs. They procrastinate doing the work they want in the name of perfectionism. You know these people. The one’s who have been saying for years that they’re going to do something but never do. Yet inwardly, they’re terrified of what other people will think of them. They’re caught in a state of paralysis by analysis - too busy calculating and never reaching a state of flow. Rather than doing work their own way, they do what they think will be well-received - being merely imitators of what is already popular.” – Benjamin Hardy

Can we have a moment for this taco pillow? I want to give it to JD for Valentine’s Day.

If you’re a fellow hoarder and want to share good finds on the web, leave a comment…I can always use more stuff! 😉

    I’m also so guilty of this! My personal pinterest board is living proof of this with over 2000 pins *yikes* however or of my favorite Internet finds is the blog Hyperbole and a Half. It is a laugh until you cry type of blog (especially any post she writes about her dogs!)

    I collect and poured over 8000 pins! I also ordered sharpies pans and other stationary and I sometimes don’t use them because I’m afraid I’m gonna ruin them…… But then he and drie I collect and hoard over 8000 pins! I also ordered sharpies pens another stationary and I sometimes don’t use them because I’m afraid I’m gonna ruin them… then the ink dries. I think this means we have to start taking advantage of what we have in front of us and use it up!

    The way I deal with all of my interesting internet collections- I post them to my FB page so I can keep them forever – it is like my internet file cabinet. My friends love it 😉

    This used to be me, except I would tear the articles out of magazines. I just recently moved and was forced to recycle many years of this bad, bad habit. I’m sure you can imagine what a mess this was. Saving them digitally is ingenious! Haha. On a side note, I LOVE everything about this blog post (including the taco pillow, which is a MUST HAVE!) I feel like this is everything inside of my head, and you articulate it so well. Thanks for sharing!
