Why Pinterest is important for RAs

Pinterest is probably one of my favorite things to do when I’m bored, need to wind down or take a break from working. However, it can also be useful when I need to be productive as well.

As an RA I’m required to make useful bulletin boards and decorative name tags for my residents, but I am not a creative person. I have no artistic ability (except for one picture that I drew a long time ago) and I can hardly draw a straight line.

So when I need a little inspiration, I turn to Pinterest. I can look at what other RAs have already done or just take ideas from things that I just look good and that I might be capable of making. My very first door decs were Starbucks cups


and then Scrabble letters


Both of these (along with many others) were inspired by things that I found on Pinterest.

So technically, spending hours on Pinterest is a form of being productive……at least that’s what I tell myself 🙂
