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

starbs

and then Scrabble letters

scrabble

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 🙂
