We probably have all been there at some point. You open your laptop, go online, and find yourself doing exactly opposite of what you went on there to do. You enter the unforeseen layers of the internet and sometimes never return. Here are just some battles I always lose to the internet:
Youtube how to [fill in the blank]
Get distracted by the suggested videos on the side
Enter the black hole of YouTube
Watch cute babies laughing and kitten videos for the next hour
Living Social/Groupon/ Every other deal site on the internet
Look for a great deal, because why pay full price
“Oh look a Costa Rica vacation for 7 nights. Looks great, pictures are persuasive, tempted to book the flight right now.”
On second thought I should probably save my money.

“Let’s see what kind of cake I can make for Ali’s birthday”
Repin 357 pins onto my style inspiration, kitchen inspiration, and backyard inspiration boards.

Still no cake recipe.
