I'm late to the Pinterest game, and honestly thought the concept was so dumb when I first heard it: "It's a bulletin board for the internet." Pffft. K.

Now, I'm pretty obsessed. From finding new recipes, to learning new life hacks, to reading up on DIY home renovations and decorations, this thing is actually pretty damn rad.

Be warned: It's a HUGE time suck. You'll find an hour has gone by and all you've done is pin organized linen closets.

Ah, The Onion. Could there be a more glorious fake news site? They're commitment to keeping their world news stories feasible is what makes this site hilarious. Love this site.

This is my go-to, one-stop site for holiday shopping.

Since they sell pretty much everything, it's easy to find that stuff for any one on your shopping list. Plus the used option can help keep my purchases for myself within my budget. I've had great luck with used photography equipment.

Of course, Amazon is a marketplace with thousands of sellers, so it's hard to give a comprehensive review when you're dealing with individual venders. Thanks to the site itself, you can review the individual vendors, and read reviews before you decide to buy.

Thank goodness for online delivery!

I generally like GrubHub. It's nice that so many small restaurants now have the opportunity to add online ordering to their services.

My only issue is that in the past, GrubHub has allowed me to order from restaurants that aren't open, and alerted to me about this AFTER I placed my order. My card wasn't charged, but it was annoying to have my time wasted like that.

Ah, Netflix. I wish I could quit you.

Netflix has helped me, and millions of others, develop the unhealthy need to watch every episode of a show ever in a span of three days.

I really like the "Max" addition to help you pick a film or show when you're feeling indecisive. It's pretty awesome how based on your previous choices and reviews, Max typically finds exactly what you're in the mood for.

Sure, I get bummed out that not EVERYTHING I want to watch is on there, but the selection is pretty fantastic overall.

Plus, I like them even more for calling out Verizon. You go, Netflix!

Why bother with 140 characters when a picture says a thousand words?!

I love the filters, it's incredibly easy to use, and I love that I can sync it up to my Twitter and Facebook.

Sure, because of sites like this I now have a ton of selfie pictures in my Facebook feed, but really, that just helps me know who I should de-friend after awhile. Plus, what a lovely forum for me to post thousands of pictures of my dog doing things that I find adorable. Like existing.

I realize that people are probably removing me for that reason. BUT PUPPY IN TSHIRTS!!!!

Y'know, when I actually type it I realize how crazy that sounds. Unfriend away.

Anywho, great stuff, InstaGram! I'm a big fan of you!

FINALLY! I can learn how to please a man!

Thank goodness this site can guide me through giving the perfect blow job (an ever changing art form), do my hair in a pleasing just-rolled-out-of-bed fashion that will only take me an hour, figure out how to lose weight BECAUSENOONEWILLLOVEMEWITHTHESELASTFIVEPOUNDS, and read a compelling article about a celebrity of great stature; like a Kardashian or one of the Pretty Little Liars.

All wrapped up nicely with an excerpt from a romance novel and a horrifying account of being roofied or a near death experience. Wow.

What. A. Page turner.

If you'll excuse me, I need to get off the computer before a man learns that I have internet access.

I haven't used the site, but I have seen the product of this matching site!

I met so many single serving friends through my roommate's efforts. It brought up a lot of questions:
-Do I tell them my real name?
-Do I make them pancakes in the morning?
-If I harvest their organs, will anyone miss them?

Upon visiting the site, it seems well put together. The format is simple to use and clean looking, and it definitely puts you in touch with matches.

So if you're looking for some action, go to Ok Cupid! Save Plenty of Fish or Match for when you're looking for something more substantial.

Hulu

I'm a cord cutter and love hulu. They do a great job of providing up to date programming for most shows and the service is quite reliable. Their original programming isn't quite as good as their competitors, but pretty darn close. My main gripes are, 1) No CBS of CW shows, so I have to use differ...

So, there isn't much to be said other than subscribing to Netflix is almost a necessity if you enjoy television. Their original programming is amazing and they have a great backlog of older television shows and some movies. The only thing I am disappointed about is that their movie selection is s...

I have been a GQ magazine reader for years and their website has just as high quality as the print publication. Now, specifically, they are doing a great job covering the 2017 political climate in a fair and unbiased way.

The History of Byzantium

Good follow up to the History of Rome. Clear Narrative, I like that he generally sticks to mid-length episodes, but alters the length when needed.
